Healthy Recipe: Egg White Frittata
Frittatas are a great breakfast option, they are easy to make and heat up great in the microwave for a quick breakfast. I used egg whites for this recipe because it’s easiest, but you can use whole eggs as well (just know this will change the nutrition information listed below). You can also change it up with different vegetables, types of cheese and herbs & spices. Lastly, I also baked a few sweet potatoes to pair with this to make the meal more filling. Enjoy!
First start the sweet potatoes
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400
Step 2: Rinse & 3 dry sweet potatoes (make sure they are similar sized so they cook at the same rate)
Step 3: Put Potatoes in oven & set your timer for 45 minutes
Now start the Frittata
Step 1: Gather ingredients:
- 1 container egg whites
- 1 package Cherry Tomatoes
- ~4 cups baby spinach
- Herbs / seasoning of choice
- about 2 tbsp olive oil (just enough to coat the pan & to lightly coat the tomatoes)
- 5 oz goat cheese (or cheese of choice)
Step 2: Lay the tomatoes out on a baking sheet, season to taste and lightly coat in olive oil – put in oven with the potatoes and set another timer for 8 min (keep an eye on them, they may need a few more minutes)
Step 3: Generously coat the pan & sides with olive oil
Step 4: Add spinach on medium heat and cook until slightly wilted
Step 5: Take tomatoes out of oven & add to the pan with the spinach, turn the heat up to medium high
Step 6: Add the container of Egg Whites
Step 7: Sprinkle cheese in
Step 8: Cover and let it cook for a few minutes (Keep and eye on it. You are looking for it to be cooked about 1.5 inches on the edge)
Step 9: When ready, take the pan off the stove, remove the lid & place in the oven at 400 for about 10 minutes. You will know it’s done when the center is firm.
Step 10: When cool, dived into 6 servings like you would a pizza. Take your sweet potatoes & cut in half. 1 Frittata piece + 1/2 sweet potato = your healthy breakfast! You are ready for the week ahead!
