This is an excellent vegetable packed egg breakfast that's topped with cheese. You don't need an oven for this, you can do it all on the stove top as long as you have a lid for the pan!

I boosted mine with the addition of egg whites for more protein and fluffiness, but you can use another whole egg if you like. You can also use any cheese you like. I chose goat cheese!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: 1 large serving

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 Tbsp crumbled goat cheese

Steps:

  1. Lightly grease a medium pan and place over medium heat. Cook kale, onion, and tomato until wilted, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add garlic and stir, cooking for a minute.
  3. Whisk eggs together in a little bowl then pour over the veggies in the pan.
  4. Use a spoon to pull away at the sides of the cooked egg, then tip the pan to fill those open areas with uncooked egg. Keep repeating until there is no egg liquid left.
  5. Sprinkle the top of the frittata with cheese, then place the lid on top. Allow to steam and melt the cheese for a minute or two.

  7. Turn off the heat and slide frittata onto a plate. Serve immediately.

This is a staple in my house at any time of day. It is easily prepared, quickly re-heated by the slice, and excellent on toast. It is equally famous for freeze-ability when I have more than one loaf. It is high in protein, low in fat, wonderfully versatile depending on what vegetables you have on hand, and a great opportunity to experiment with herbs and spices.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 90 minutes

Total Time: less than two hours

Yield: 6 - 8 servings

Ingredients:

  • vegetables on hand (like spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots, celery, onions, corn, peas, zucchini, beans, etc.)
  • 2 cups egg whites (per loaf)
  • fresh garlic or garlic powder (to taste)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil

Steps:

  1. Chop, dice and slice vegetables on hand. In short, make a salad with ingredients which can withstand heat/cooking (omit cucumbers and lettuce, for example). Add leftover meats, if desired; cooked and diced or shredded. This is also an opportunity to add leftover cooked rice or pasta, if desired.
  2. Toss all ingredients as you would a salad, and scoop into loaf pan(s).
  3. Separately, combine egg whites and preferred herbs and spices: crushed garlic or garlic powder, dry basil and oregano, a pinch of chili powder or black pepper. Mix egg whites and spices, pour mixture over the vegetables in the loaf pan(s).

  5. Gently lift the vegetables to incorporate egg whites evenly throughout.
  6. Bake 1 - 1 ½ hours at 350 degrees F. (depending on the depth of the pan and contents). To check, slide a thin knife into the middle of the frittata. If the contents are firm and don't adhere to the knife, your meal is done.
  7. Slice and serve with salsa, sriracha, tomato slices or blanched asparagus.
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

If you would also like to add some diced bell peppers, just saute about 1/4 cup of them and a tad bit more olive oil with the onions.

I love this! It makes a most excellent lunch with a bit of soup or a green salad! Add whatever your heart desires to it, I prefer broccoli and onions in mine, but you can put anything you want in it!
