Egg White Frittata
Serves 8
A Frittata is an Italian version of an omelet. Often compared to a crust-less quiche or, in America, “scrambled eggs.” An Egg White Frittata is not only a healthy alternative to a high-carbohydrate and calorie filled breakfast, the Egg White Frittata is also easy to make and can be reheated as leftovers for a nutritious breakfast every day of the week. As this recipe is cooked both on the stove top and in the oven, a skillet that can withstand at least 400 degrees is essential.
