Ingredients
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1/2 cup
    onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup
    green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons
    olive oil, or canola oil
  • 2 large
    eggs
  • 1/2 cup
    egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup
    reduced fat Swiss, or sharp cheddar shredded
  • 1 large
    vine-ripened tomato, cut in half and then sliced (or 2 medium tomatoes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    Italian seasoning, (or any herb blend you like)
  •  
    canola cooking spray, or olive oil cooking spray
  •  
    salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a 9-inch nonstick skillet, cook the onion and bell pepper with salt and pepper to taste in 2 teaspoons of oil over medium heat, stirring often, until the bell pepper is tender (about 3 minutes).
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat or whisk together the eggs, egg substitute, and cheese. Add the bell pepper mixture and beat or whisk until well combined.
  3. Start heating the 9-inch skillet again over medium heat until hot.
  4. Coat the pan generously with canola cooking spray and quickly pour in the egg mixture, distributing the bell pepper evenly. While it begins to cook, arrange tomato slices decoratively on top, then sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning on top. Cover the skillet and cook (without stirring) for about 6 minutes, or until the frittata is set and bottom is nicely brown.
  5. If desired, broil the frittata under a preheated broiler, about 4 inches from the heat, for 2 minutes, to lightly brown the top. Let cool in the skillet for 5 minutes. Slide the frittata onto a serving plate, cut into wedges, and serve it warm or at room temperature.
