Girls Weekend: Veggie Frittata

Megan and Amanda recently came to visit me for a girl’s weekend!  The three of us live in different cities but we still manage to get together for some good times.  I wanted to start Saturday off on a good healthy foot because who knew what we were going to eat, drink, or do once we were out on the town.  So I made us a Veggie Frittata.  Here’s what I put in it:

  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 3 Large Egg Whites
  • A Dash of Skim Milk (about 2 tablespoons)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Goat Cheese (about a tablespoon crumbled)
  • Roasted Red Peppers (1/4 cup chopped)
  • Fresh Spinach (1 1/2 cups)
  • Cooking Spray

I like mixing eggs and egg whites to cut down on the fat but keep up the volume in the dish.   First, I preheated my oven to 400 degrees and whisked together the eggs, egg whites, milk, and a little salt and pepper.  Then we added the crumbled goat cheese, roasted red peppers, and fresh spinach.

I preheated my skillet on the stove over medium-high heat, coated it with cooking spray, and added my egg mixture.  The bottom of the frittata needed to set while the eggs cooked, so I was careful not to stir the mixture too much.

After 4-5 minutes, I transferred the skillet to the 400-degree oven and let it bake for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs were cooked through.  Check out the final product:

I was careful to only add a little goat cheese because I wanted the roasted red pepper and spinach flavors to not be over powered.  My basil plant is still exploding, so I tore up some fresh basil leaves and sprinkled them on top.  The frittata turned out really tasty and good!  The roasted red peppers were sweet and the goat cheese was nice and creamy.  I like spinach, but I think for next time fresh arugula would add a nice peppery taste to mix.  We also had a little non-fat Greek yogurt with fresh blueberries and coffee.

It was a great healthy way to start off our day!  I love making frittata’s because you can put pretty much anything in them.  They’re a great way to use up ingredients and clean out your fridge.

What do you like in your frittata?
