Ingredients

1 cup / 250 g Naturegg Omega Plus cracked eggs, well shaken
1/2 tsp / 2 ml dried Italian seasoning or dried basil
1/4 tsp / 1 ml each salt and pepper
dash Worcestershire sauce (optional) dash
1 tbsp / 15 ml vegetable oil
1/2 cup / 125 ml coarsely chopped red onion
1/2 cup / 125 ml sliced mushrooms
2 cup / 500 ml assorted chopped vegetables of your choice: zucchini, broccoli, carrots, green or red pepper, tomato
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 cup / 250 ml shredded old cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. In small bowl, whisk liquid eggs, seasoning, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.

  2. In 10” (25 cm) nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, mushrooms, vegetables and garlic 4-5 minutes or until slightly softened. Reduce heat to low; pour egg mixture over vegetables. Cover and cook until egg is almost set, 10-15 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle cheese over frittata and place under broiler until cheese melts. (To protect plastic handle from melting in oven while broiling, wrap with foil.) Transfer frittata to serving plate; serve hot with fresh bread*.

Tips

  1. Variation: For a spicier frittata add a finely chopped jalapeno pepper with the seeds removed.

Gluten Free

  1. Use basil or a gluten-free Italian seasoning. If using Worcestershire sauce make sure it is gluten-free. If using pre-packaged shredded cheese choose one that is gluten-free. If serving with bread choose gluten-free bread.
