Preparation

In 9- or 10-inch (23 or 25 cm) nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook broccoli, onion, red pepper, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.

In bowl, whisk eggs with milk; pour over broccoli mixture. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until bottom and side are firm but top is still slightly runny, about 7 minutes.

Sprinkle with cheese; cover and cook until centre is set and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.

Kary's tip: If you have an ovenproof handle, you can finish the frittata under the broiler. Once you have sprinkled the cheese over top, broil until centre is set and cheese is melted.
