California Avocado and Mozzarella Frittata



A frittata is just an open faced omelet with many different ingredients that make it a delicious meal. I love the Calphalon Frittata pan, but a regular omelet pan is just fine. Depending on the size pan you can make your frittata for one or more.  One day I was feeling like I wanted an California style frittata so I just started layering different ingredients and the result was delicious.


California Avocado and Mozzarella Frittata

2 eggs, beaten
1/2 avocado
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh mozzarella chopped
1/4 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
2 scallions, sliced
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
black pepper
alpha sprouts, optional

Slice and chop avocado.  Sprinkle lemon juice over to prevent avocado from browning. Spray pan with cooking spray. Heat on medium heat.  Pour beaten eggs into pan.  Cook eggs just until set.  Now layer your ingredients starting with the avocado, then mozzarella, tomatoes, scallions, cilantro and black pepper.  If using Frittata pan cover and cook for 3 minutes, flip pan and cook 3 more minutes. With a regular pan cook an additional 5-6 minutes until done.  Top with alpha sprouts if desired. Serves one.

Enjoy!
