Now that we have a few holidays under our belt (literally and figuratively, ha) it’s time to focus on some healthy nourishing meals. One that includes vegetables and eggs is a perfect thing! Eggs are fantastic not just because they are nutritious but they are so versatile. You can simply crack one into a skillet and have breakfast in minutes or you can make something a little more special like a frittata recipe.
Everyone should know how to make a fritatta and here’s the good news….it’s super simple to do! You will sauté your veggies in the same pan that you cook your frittata which makes clean up a breeze. Just make sure you are using an oven safe skillet! So basically it’s a simplified quiche and without the buttery crust, it’s a healthier figure-friendly option.
Eggland’s Best eggs come from hens fed a wholesome, all-vegetarian diet consisting of healthy grains, canola oil, and a supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp, and Vitamin E. The Eggland’s Best hen feed contains no animal by-products or processed foods. Eggland’s Best never uses hormones, steroids or antibiotics of any kind. That is why they taste so good!
Although 10 eggs sounds like a lot, you’ll be getting 6 servings from this and one egg only has 60 calories, 1 gram of saturated fat and heaps of wonderful nutrition like vitamin A, D, E, B vitamins, Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and lutein, to name a few. The calorie count of this frittata is fantastic at ~160 calorie a slice; pair it with some fruit or salad and it makes a great breakfast or brunch.
And the filling is not limited to vegetables- you can do breakfast meats and/or something starchy like potatoes or squash. I kept it simple this time with a variety of delicious produce. Make sure to salt according to you filling. A plain veggie or potato option will require more salt than if you were using salty meat like sausage or bacon. However, knowing that feta is quite salty I knew I would’n’t need to add a lot. Then just pour beaten eggs into the cooked veggies and into the oven it goes.
Back to the cheese for a minute- I adore eggs and greens with feta, but you could do goat cheese, monterey jack, cheddar, gouda, parmesan…the list goes on.
What would you put in your frittata recipe?
