Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp chopped, drained artichoke hearts, oil-packed or marinated
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ricotta cheese
  • Pinch salt optional
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat breakfast sandwich maker.
  • In a small bowl, gently whisk egg. Stir in artichoke hearts, roasted peppers and cheese. Season with salt (if using).
  • Lower the cooking plate and both rings of sandwich maker. Lightly spray the cooking plate with cooking spray. Pour the egg mixture into the top ring.
  • Gently close the cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until frittata is cooked to your liking. Rotate cooking plate away from sandwich maker and lift rings. Use a plastic or nylon spatula to remove the frittata. Serve immediately.

Notes

Ricotta is available in a range of fat options, from nonfat to whole milk.
Variation: 
Crumbled feta cheese is a nice alternative to ricotta in this recipe. Feta has a tarter and saltier taste, so you likely won’t want to add the pinch of salt.
