“You can put anything you want into a frittata. Your might choose any veggies, or meats, bacon, or sausage. You can add less eggs to make it very thin, or more eggs to make it thick.  The old method was to fry the vegetables in oil. For a healthier version I steam them in the micro and then add to the eggs. It is the method that makes all the difference to make it come out perfectly every time!  I have written it out for 5 eggs with lots of asparagus and potatoes since I prefer a thin frittata with lots of veggies. Each serving is only 112 calories or 3 Weight Watcher points. Enjoy!

Servings: 6


5 eggs

2 small potatoes, thinly sliced

1 bunch fresh thin asparagus, cut and trimmed into two-inch pieces

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons canola oil

¾  teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper


  1. In a microwavable steamer, or in a steamer basket on top of the stove, steam the asparagus and sliced potatoes until they are almost soft.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, add salt and pepper. 
  3. In a large eight-inch skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat. 
  4. Add the steamed asparagus and potatoes and sauté them in the oil for just one minute.
  5. Pour the eggs over the asparagus and potatoes.
  6. Let that cook in the pan, pushing the eggs with a spatula to the edge of pan so the liquid eggs go to the rim and underneath; cook until most of the eggs on top are cooked.
  7. Get a dinner plate and place it upside down on top of the frittata.
  8. Tip the skillet quickly upside down so frittata moves onto the plate.
  9. Slide the frittata back into the skillet so the uncooked side goes back in the bottom of the skillet.
  10. Let that side of the frittata cook for just a minute or two more.
  11. Slide the frittata onto a serving plate.
