Easy Cheesy Frittata

Easy Cheesy Frittata

A Frittata is a baked dish made with eggs that is often enjoyed for breakfast (although my family tends to enjoy having this “breakfast” treat for supper). My dad says it’s a “quiche without a crust.” This Frittata includes vegetables and cheese. You can also add other vegetables, such as mushrooms, olives, bell peppers, and spinach, or meats, such as chopped ham or turkey. Using 1/2 egg whites, like the recipe calls for, cuts back on some calories, too. Enjoy!

4 eggs

4 egg whites

2 Tablespoons water

1/2 cup diced tomatoes (for a prettier presentation, take out the seeds)

1 cup low-fatt mozzarella cheese, divided

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat eggs, egg whites and water in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Stir in tomatoes, 1/2 cup of the cheese, the bacon and basil. Pour into greased 9-inch pie plate.
Bake 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  1. What do you mean by 1/2 egg whites will reduce the calories? I don’t understand. the recipe calls for 4 eggs and 4 egg whites. So what do you change? Can I use egg beaters for the eggs?
    thanks

  2. Sorry if I was unclear. I was trying to say that since you are using 1/2 eggs and 1/2 egg whites you’ve really cut back on the calories.
    You could easily use eggbeaters and use the conversion to substitute that for eggs. Most of the time that works fairly well (there are even flavored egg beaters you could use – I think there’s a Mexican flavored one, etc).
