Omelets and Frittatas -
I looked this up, and a frittata is considered an "open face omelet." This recipe uses fat free egg substitute and helps save on fat and calories while still providing the same protein as fresh eggs. If you like using real eggs, you can make the following substitutions:
For 1 cup Egg Beaters Egg Product, substitute 4 whole eggs. Or, use 1/2 cup Egg Beaters and 2 whole eggs. Or, use 2 whole eggs and 1/2 cup liquid egg whites. I also use skim milk in this recipe, but 1% or 2% works just as well. For an even richer frittata, you can substitute whole milk or light cream.
I am able to find reduced fat swiss cheese now in major grocery stores. You may have to shred it yourself, because I haven't found it prepackaged yet. You can also use regular cheese.
If you have fresh asparagus, steam it until fairly soft, like the bottled variety. Use about 10 stalks.
