My Favorite Frittatta

Filed under: Fuel a.k.a what I eat, recipes — myjourneyfromfattofit @ 11:21 am

As the title says this is my absolute favorite frittatta! The recipe, and I use that term loosely because I never really have recipes when I cook it’s more like a mish mash of stuff and cross your fingers hope it tastes good.  So anyway, as I was starting to say this is my adaptation of a frittatta recipe in January’s Clean Eating Magazine.

I start with 4 whole eggs, 4 egg whites

I peel and grate one medium to large-sized potato, a medium apple, usually a carrot (if I have one around) and finely chop one small onion.  Then I put those ingredients into a large non-stick skillet, cook and set aside.

Whisk together eggs and egg whites with skim milk, cayan pepper and parsley.  Combine the pre-cooked mixture above with the eggs. Transfer back to the non-stick skillet and cook over a medium low heat until the top is somewhat dry, then flip the frittatta over to cook the other side and cover with lid to kind of steam cook it the rest of the way.

Slide it onto a serving platter, slice it up, garnish with fruit or whatever you like to eat it with. Enjoy!

This meal has a tonne of protein, good carbs, good fats and fiber!

  2. It sounds delicious, but looks like soylent green. Why is the most tasty food not so photogenic. Attractive arrangement on the plate with the fruit. Ok now I’m hungry!

    • haha thats probably the lighting in my kitchen – the only gren thing was the slice of avocado on top of the frittatta – the frit itsself is more of a pale yellow because there are 8 eggs but only 4 yolks. but it is seriously yumm – you should def try to make it you’ll be converted 🙂
