Ingredients:
·1 large baking potato, peeled and thinly sliced
·1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into ½-inch pieces
·4 large eggs
·4 egg whites
·½ cup skim milk
·4 TBS shredded mozzarella cheese
·½ tsp salt
·¼ tsp baking powder
·1 onion, chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 500°. Place the potato in a saucepan and add water to cover by 3 inches. Cover the saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat; boil 5 minutes. Add the asparagus and cook 2 minutes longer. Drain and set aside to cool.

Combine the whole eggs, egg whites, milk, and 3 TBS of cheese, salt, and baking powder ina bowl. Mix in the potato and the asparagus.

Spray an ovenproof skillet or pan with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add the egg mixture and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook until almost set, about 10 minutes. Uncover the skillet, sprinkle with remaining cheese, and transfer to the oven. Bake until the frittata is cooked through and the cheese has browned, about 5 minutes. Invert the frittata onto a plate and cut into 4 wedges before serving.
