Wild West Frittata

Olive oil spray
3/4 c. chopped sweet onion
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
4 ounces 97-98% lean ham steak, cut into 1/4" cubes
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
2 c. egg substitute
2 oz. (1 cup) finely shredded light Swiss cheese

Preheat broiler.

Place a medium broiler-safe skillet over medium heat. Lightly mist with oilive oil spray. Add onion, bell pepper and ham and cook 5-7 minutes, or until the onion and pepper are softened but not browned. Season with salt and pepper, but keep in mind that you will be adding ham and cheese, so you won't need much salt. (I didn't use salt or pepper while cooking, add as desired before eating)

Turn the heat to medium-high and pour egg substitute into the pan. Stir the veggies and ham in the eggs until they are evenly distributed and the eggs are slightly scrambled, 1-2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Continue to cook, continuously sliding a spatula all around the sides of the frittata as far into the bottom as possible to loosen and gently lift the eggs slightly from the pan to prevent sticking, until the frittata is almost set but still runny on top, 4-6 minutes.

Remove the pan from heat and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top. Transfer skillet to oven and broil for 1-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and egg is completely set. Cut into 4 equal wedges and serv.
