Don’t be tempted to melt the cheese onto the frittata under the broiler; the nonstick coating in the skillet shouldn’t be exposed directly to such high heat.

Ingredients

egg(s)

4 item(s)

fat free egg substitute

1 cup(s)

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

cooked Canadian-style bacon

3 oz, diced

fresh ramps

8 medium, white parts and greens separated, both thinly slic

parmesan cheese

2 oz, shaved, (Parmigiano-Reggiano)

black pepper

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. 1. Whisk eggs and egg substitute in a large bowl until creamy and uniform. Set aside.
  2. 2. Spray a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add bacon and sliced whites of ramps; cook 3 minutes, stirring often, until bacon is lightly browned and ramp white bits have softened somewhat.
  3. 3. Add greens from the ramps; cook 1 minute, stirring often, until wilted.
  4. 4. Whisk egg mixture one more time; pour into skillet. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook about 12 minutes, until top of eggs is set. Slide frittata out of skillet and onto a cutting board. Divide into four wedges; sprinkle with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and black pepper. Serving size: 1/4 of frittata

Notes

Ramps are sometimes called “wild leeks.” That’s a bit of a misnomer, based solely on the fact that ramps, a favorite across New England (and Europe) in the spring, have a leek-like flavor, albeit sweeter and milder, if just as fragrant. Look for sturdy stalks and perky leaves, not wilted or limp. Like this recipe? Share it! (The icons at the top make it easy.)
