Broccoli Frittata with Tomato Toast and Banana Milk
Recipe courtesy of Food Network Kitchen
This stove-top frittata is quick and easy and the flavored milk is a clever way to include fruit into your breakfast.
- 2 ripe bananas, sliced
- 3 cups plus 1/3 cup reduced-fat milk
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 5 slices whole wheat bread
- 1/3 cup shredded low-fat Swiss
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
- 2 large eggs plus 2 large egg whites
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, halved
- 1 ripe tomato, cut into 4 slices
Divide the sliced bananas among the four glasses, smash slightly and fill each glass with 3/4 cup of milk. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Combine the broccoli and 1 tablespoon water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes, carefully remove the plastic and drain.
Tear up one slice of bread into small pieces and soak in the remaining 1/3 cup milk in a large bowl until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the broccoli, cheese, basil, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Heat half of the oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook until the bottom begins to set, about 2 minutes. Adjust the heat to medium-low, cover and continue to cook until the middle is set, 6 to 7 minutes more.
Meanwhile, toast the remaining bread, then rub each slice with garlic and top with a slice of tomato. Drizzle the toast with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil.
Cut the frittata into four slices and divide among four plates along with the tomato toast. Serve with the banana milk.
