breakfast nutrition recipe Dec 19, 2019

Frittatas are a delicious, easy breakfast to prep ahead of time. Eaten cold or warm, they provide protein and endless flavor combos. They store well and can also be eaten for lunch or dinner.

Basic Frittata  

Ingredients:

6 eggs
1/2 cup egg whites
1 tsp. butter
Cooking spray 
1/4 tsp salt.

Add ins: 
- diced onion
- wilted greens
- mushrooms 
- sun-dried tomatoes 
- roasted sweet potato
- cooked, crumbled bacon
- sliced turkey or breakfast sausage 
- smoked salmon
- low-fat cheese
- vegan cheese (try Heidi Ho)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk eggs and egg whites in bowl. Add cooked meats, veggies and add-ins. Avoid using watery veggies (i.e. tomatoes). Drain cooked veggies before adding to egg mixture. Cook 25-28 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 5-7 minutes. Slice into 4 servings. 

Chicken Breakfast Frittata  

Ingredients:
6 eggs
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 package Whole Foods Chicken Breakfast Sausage
1/2 cup diced red onion
6 cups raw spinach
1 tsp. butter
Cooking spray 
1/4 tsp salt.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Heat a large pan on stove over medium heat and add red onion. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add breakfast sausage. Cook, stirring frequently until mostly cooked. Add spinach and cook until wilted and chicken cooked (no longer pink). Remove from heat. 

Drain cooked chicken mixture in colander to remove excess water. This is KEY to prevent your frittata from becoming soggy. Whisk eggs and egg whites in large bowl. Add chicken mixture and salt (optional). 

Butter a 9x9 baking dish or 9 inch round glass pie pan. Pour mixture into dish. 
Cook for 25-28 minutes. Check at 20, 25 and 28 until desired doneness. Insert fork or toothpick to test. When it comes out clean, it is done. Cool on rack for 5-10 minutes, then slice into pieces and remove. 

Storing and reheating your frittata

Your frittata will keep in the fridge for 4 days. Store in an airtight container for freshness. You can easily reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. You can also eat frittata cold for a quick, out the door, high protein breakfast! 

Serving your frittata

- top with guacamole or avocado 
- add 2 Tbs. salsa
- serve with Breakfast Kale Salad
- add 1 piece avocado toast
- serve with 1 cup fruit salad
