Apple Cheddar Frittata

My husband and I usually make frittata for dinner a few times a month. Mostly because its a simple, healthy recipe that can be easily adapted for whatever we have on hand. And I know the apple sounds crazy – but trust me on this one. It adds a slight sweetness that is amazing with the eggs and cheese. Trust me.


1 small potato, sliced
1/2 cup broccoli
1/2 cup cubed apple *I used a Fuji
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Whisk together the eggs, cheese, garlic powder and salt and pepper. Set aside. 

Prep a 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Begin by quickly cooking potato, apple and broccoli on medium heat until just soft. About 10 minutes.

Pour egg mixture into skillet being sure all ingredients are covered with egg. Reduce the heat and cook until the edges begin to set, for about five minutes. Do not stir!

Place the entire skillet into the oven, baking for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the frittata is completely cooked through. This recipe takes slightly longer than other frittatas – I think the apple adds more moisture. Be patient!
