Healthy Frittata

1 tsp olive oil
Non-stick cooking spray
1 large potato, diced (about 14 ounces)
1 medium onion, diced (about 6 ounces)
1 medium green pepper, diced (about 5 ounces)
5 ounces Canadian Bacon, diced
16 ounces Egg Substitute (Pasteurized Egg Whites are acceptable as well — as long as equivalent to 8 eggs)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Lightly spray an oven-safe 12-inch non-stick skillet, place over medium-low heat, and add one tablespoon olive oil; tilt pan to coat. When oil begins to ripple, add potatoes and sauté for two minutes. Add onions and sauté for an addition two minutes. Turn broiler on high at this point to warm up. Add green pepper and sauté for two minutes more. Add Canadian Bacon, and sauté for one final minute. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top of sautéed veggies and meat. Add Egg Substitute evenly over all. Season with Kosher salt and finely ground black pepper.

Using a spatula, gently work the egg mixture through the filling, and ensure it does not stick to the sides of the pan. The eggs will begin to firm up and a crust will begin to form around the edges. This takes about 5-6 minutes. Once the crust has formed, place the pan under the broiler for 3-4 minutes, until the eggs begin to puff up and become a golden brown. Remove from broiler after browning (make sure to watch so that it doesn’t burn!), and allow to cool for a couple minutes before serving. Frittata will deflated slightly and pull away from sides of the skillet. Slice into 4 wedges for a main course, or 8 or more to use as an appetizer. Serves 4 as a main course or 8 (or more) as an appetizer.
