Mushroom and Cheddar Fritatta

Tonight I made a fritatta from an episode of Good Deal with Dave Lieberman. It was excellent. I didn't make the arugula salad, but I did still have a salad with it. I would definitely make this again.

Mushroom and Cheddar Fritatta and Arugula Side Salad
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (10-ounce) package mushrooms, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
8 eggs
4 egg whites
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar
Arugula Salad, recipe follows

Preheat the broiler and set the rack about 4 to 5 inches from the heat source.

Heat oil in large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms until browned, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add onion and saute until tender.

Whisk eggs, egg whites, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour over vegetables in skillet and mix gently. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover skillet, and cook until eggs are set around edges, about 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and then place skillet under broiler and cook until cheese is melted and just browned, about 2 minutes. Let frittata stand 1 minute before cutting into 8 wedges. Serve with salad on the side.

Arugula Salad:
1 large bunch arugula leaves, washed and dried
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
10 grinds black pepper
Couple pinches salt

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Toss to coat leaves with dressing and serve with the frittata.

Yield: 8 servings
