This single-serve frittata makes an easy dinner for one in less than 15 minutes. It only requires eight ingredients, two of which include salt and pepper. You'll love the convenience of being able to use both the microwave and broiler to make this frittata. It's made with asparagus and fat-free cottage cheese, but you can use any veggies or cheese you like (just keep in mind that this may change the nutritional value). You can also scale up the ingredients and use a larger skillet if you want to make this for more than one person. Feel free to experiment with whatever you've got!


Uncooked asparagus

4 spear(s), medium, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces


2 large egg(s)


1 Tbsp, chopped fresh

Table salt

1 pinch(es)

Black pepper

1 pinch(es)

Olive oil

1 tsp

Fat free cottage cheese

5 Tbsp

Reduced-calorie bread

1 slice(s), toasted


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Place asparagus in small microwaveable bowl, cover with wax paper, and microwave on High until crisp-tender, about 30 seconds. Drain.
  3. Whisk together eggs, basil, salt, and pepper in small bowl. Heat oil in small ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook, lifting edges frequently with spatula to let any uncooked egg flow underneath, until almost set, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with asparagus and spoon cottage cheese on top.
  4. Place skillet under broiler 5 inches from heat and cook until eggs are set, about 2 minutes. Serve with toast.
  5. Per serving (1 frittata and 1 slice bread)
