Egg White Frittata

mentioned the other day that I would be sharing some recipes I've been mixing up in the kitchen lately and I figured I would start with this simple breakfast recipe.

This recipe is not only healthy, but also perfect to make ahead and eat during the week.  It's especially nice to have breakfast on hand when my crazy mornings don't allow for cooking.

The best thing about frittatas is that pretty much anything goes. Feel free to add or take away whatever ingredients you may like. However, I must say the combination of ingredients I put together is quite tasty. I hope this will inspire you to clean out the fridge and create your own breakfast masterpiece.


Start by sautéing chopped onions, garlic, mushrooms and fresh spinach.  In a separate bowl mix together egg whites, cherry tomatoes, chopped green onions and salt and pepper.

Once the spinach mixture has cooked down, pour in with the egg whites, quickly whisking. Once well mixed, pour into a greased baking dish. Bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes or until the eggs have fully cooked.  Remove from the oven and top with shredded cheese. Place the dish back in the oven until the cheese has melted on top.
 


This refrigerates well, making great leftovers.
