Broccoli and Goat Cheese Frittata

Last week I whipped up a quick dinner using eggs, leftover vegetables and cheese. Frittata's are my favorite go-to meal when I am looking to use up a few leftover ingredients. With an egg base, you can add just about any food item and your result will be delicious, as long as they're is cheese involved! My simple frittata contained broccoli, onion, goat cheese and spices. Goat cheese has a naturally pungent flavor which works great when paired with milder ingredients such as broccoli. My frittata recipe is usful for a bunch, lunch or dinner on the go!

Broccoli and Goat Cheese Frittata
(serves about 6)

2 tsp olive oil
1 red onion, sliced thin
3 cups washed and cut broccoli
1 tbsp minced garlic
6 eggs and 4 egg whites
1/4 cup milk
Pinch salt, pepper and cayenne
1/4 cup fresh chives, or any fresh herb
1 cup crumbled goat cheese

In a large cast iron pan, add olive oil over medium/high heat. Add your sliced red onion, and cook 2 minutes. When onion begins to char, add broccoli and cook until tender and crisp. Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together your eggs, milk, seasonings and herbs. Turn down cast iron pan to low/medium and add all of the crumbled goat cheese. Then, pour egg mixture on top and cook on your stove top until top begins to bubble. Now transfer the cast iron pan into broiler on high until top begins to lightly brown. Cool at room temp and serve.
