Onion Frittata Bites - A Waist Friendly Appetizer !

Weight Watcher friendly appetizers ......I had to get something that was a little healthier in there.  I fell of the Weight Watchers wagon during the holidays, as you can probably tell by my posts .... I know Nancy did :) ...... starting tomorrow I am back on the wagon but off course everything will remain in moderation.
Onion Frittata Bites
1 tsp butter
2 cups finely chopped onion
Cooking spray
1 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp eggs
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
Chopped Scallions for garnish, if desired
Preheat oven to 350°.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion to pan; cook 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Spread mixture in a single layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine egg substitute, 2 tablespoons cheese, salt, pepper, and eggs. Pour egg mixture evenly over onion; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons cheese. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; cut into 24 pieces. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon sour cream and 2 chive pieces.
