Ingredients

  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Cup Sargento┬« Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese * plus more for topping, if desired
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 small shallot * diced
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1 1/2 Cups broccoli florets
  • sliced green onions * optional garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350┬░F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper until well blended. Stir in the cheese and set aside.
  • In a large, oven-proof skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic, and broccoli and cook until just tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Spread the vegetables out around the pan, then gently pour the egg mixture into the pan. Cook for about a minute, until the bottom just starts to firm up. 
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook for about 12-15 minutes (add the extra cheese on top at around 10-12 minutes so that it has a few minutes to melt before the frittata is done cooking).
  • The frittata is done when it is just barely jiggly in the middle and golden brown along the edges and bottom. 
  • 6. Slide the frittata out onto a large cutting board or cookie sheet. Slice into 8 pieces and top with the green onions, if desired.
