Allison Adato’s new book, Smart Chefs Stay Slim, devotes a chapter to breakfast. She interviews chef Marc Murphy of New York City’s Landmarc, who discusses making this “breakfast pizza” for his kids.

  1. 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 3 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  4. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. Salt
  6. Black Pepper
  7. 8 large eggs
  8. 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (1 1/2 ounces)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the garlic and cook over moderately high heat for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and crushed red pepper and cook for 1 minute. Stir in 2 tablespoons of water, season with salt and pepper and cover. Cook over moderate heat until the broccoli is crisp-tender, 2 minutes; let cool.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. Stir in the broccoli. Return the skillet to the stovetop and heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Pour in the eggs and cook over moderately low heat until set around the edge, 3 minutes. Sprinkle the frittata with the cheese. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the frittata until the center is just set, about 12 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
