Mediterranean-Style Frittata

The deep green of the spinach in the frittata and the bright red of the Herb-Crusted Broiled Tomatoes create a vibrant combination for a vitamin-packed brunch. To speed up prep time, prepare the tomatoes while the frittata broils.

Prep: 8 minutes; Cook: 6 minutes

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)
  • Cook time:6 Minutes
  • Prep time:8 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup packed baby spinach
  • 2 green onions
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup (1.3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese with basil and sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free Greek seasoning (such as Cavender's)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Heat oil in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat. While oil heats, coarsely chop spinach and finely chop onions. Combine egg whites, eggs, cheese, Greek seasoning, and salt in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add spinach and onions, stirring well.

3. Add egg mixture to pan; cook until edges begin to set, about 2 minutes. Gently lift edge of egg mixture, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Cook 2 minutes or until egg mixture is almost set.

4. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until center is set. Transfer the frittata to a serving platter immediately; cut into 4 wedges.
