Spinach and Mozzarella Frittata
A frittata is a great alternative to a traditional omelet or scrambled eggs.
This dish is easy, convenient, and filled with delicious, healthy ingredients. Whether you are searching for a breakfast or brunch option, or you need a dish to share for a special occasion, this is it.
This frittata can be served hot or cold and goes perfectly with a fresh green salad with a lemon vinaigrette, or a side of fresh seasonal fruit. I like to add diced ham for a meatier version.
• 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
• 1/2 cup diced onion
• 1 (packed) cup chopped baby spinach, with stems removed
• 1 Roma tomato, diced (optional)
• 1/2 cup diced ham (optional)
• 1 cup 2% shredded mozzarella cheese
• 3 eggs
• 3 egg whites
• 2 tablespoons 1% milk
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
• Salt to taste
Preheat oven to broil setting. In a small skillet, add oil and sauté onion on medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. If you're adding ham or tomatoes, sauté those an additional 2-3 minutes. Then add spinach and sauté until welted. Spray the inside of a larger skillet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine sautéed onion mixture, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, and remaining ingredients; whisk to combine, and pour into larger skillet. Let the mixture "set-up" for about 3-4 minutes until edges pull apart from side of skillet. Place skillet in broiler for about 5 minutes until top of frittata starts to turn brown or until eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Slice the frittata like you would a pie and serve each slice with a side of fruit or fresh green salad!
