Updated Dec 16, 2010

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 lb. fresh asparagus spears, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 cups frozen potatoes O´Brien with onions and peppers (from 24-oz. pkg.), thawed
  • 2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, basil, salt, garlic powder and pepper; mix well. Set aside.
  • 2
    Spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add asparagus; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add potatoes; cook and stir 3 minutes.
  • 3
    Reduce heat to low. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cover loosely; cook 15 to 20 minutes or until center is set, lifting edges occasionally to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow to bottom of skillet.
  • 4
    Sprinkle with cheese. Cover; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into 8 wedges.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Reduce the fat in each serving by about 9 grams by using 1 1/2 cups of refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product, thawed, in place of the eggs, and reduce-fat Cheddar cheese.
  • tip 2
    Frozen potatoes thaw quickly in the microwave: Place them in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on MEDIUM for 3 to 4 minutes or just until thawed, turning the bowl once during cooking.
  • tip 3
    Garnish the frittata with slices of Italian plum tomatoes and fresh basil sprigs.
  • tip 4
    For an easy brunch, serve the frittata with fresh melon and muffins or flavored hearth-baked rolls, such as tomato-basil or Greek olive.
