Broccoli Cheese Frittata

 I just made this for dinner and it was delish!  You could serve it for a brunch if you so desire.

1/2 pkg cream cheese, softened
6 eggs
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup finely diced red pepper
1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed or sliced zuchinni (I use fresh broccoli)
4 ounce (aka 1 cup) cheddar cheese, shredded
6 slices firm white sandwich bread
1 tbsp butter or margarine

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).  In large bowl, whisk cream cheese until smooth.  Add eggs, milk, flour, salt and black pepper; whisk until well blended and set aside.
2.  Place onion, red pepper, broccoli and cheese in separate prep bowls.  Using 3-inch (7.5 cm) scalloped or round cutter, cut six rounds out of bread slices (discard trimmings).
3.  Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat; arrange bread slices in single layer over bottom of pan.  Cook 1-2 minutes or until golden brown on one side; remove bread from pan and set aside.  Add onion and red pepper; cook and stir 2 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in broccoli and spread evenly over bottom of skillet.  Sprinkle with cheese.
4.  Slowly pour egg mixture over vegetables.  Arrange reserved bread slices, toasted-side up, over egg mixture (do not press down).  Place in oven and back 18 - 20 minutes or until egg mixture is set in center.  Remove from oven; serve warm.

Makes 6 servings

So here's the can actually get away with using an entire 8 ounce package of cream cheese in this recipe.  How do I know? Apparently because I didn't completely read the instructions until after I made it!  Haha.
