Breakfast this morning: Mediterranean Fritatta for Two ❤️
Though quiches are one of my favorite breakfast foods, they can be time consuming with lots of prep and usually 40-60 minutes of baking time. Enter the Fritatta, the quiches crust-less pan prepared cousin! I love preparing these because they come together so quickly and have all the savory flavor of a quiche. I hope you will be able to try and enjoy this dish, and if so, let me know what you think! Recipe below 👇
You will need:
2 large eggs
3 tbsp egg whites
4 kalamata olives, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, diced
2 tbsp red onion, diced
1/2 oz reduced fat feta cheese
1 green onion
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp onion powder
*Dash of salt and pepper as desired
Putting it together:
First, whisk your eggs, egg whites basil and onion powder together; set aside. In a small nonstick skillet, spray lightly with olive oil, then preheat to med-low heat. Add onions, garlic, olives and about half of the tomatoes, sautéing just until tender. Pour the egg mixture over the top of the vegetables, then sprinkle the feta cheese, remaining tomatoes and green onions over the top. Reduce heat slightly and cover, keeping an eye on it for the egg to set. You can use a spatula to lift the edge of your frittata and make sure you aren't over cooking the bottom.
Another alternative is to flip your frittata and brown the "top". This can be a little tricky, but the best way I've found to do this with the least mess is to first: make sure the frittata is well set around the edges and there isn't too much uncooked egg on top that may spill over. Second, using your spatula, loosen the edges of your frittata and make sure it's not sticking, then slid onto a plate. Next, carefully invert your skillet over the top of the frittata, and holding the pan firmly over the plate (which should be wider in diameter than your skillet to avoid making a big mess and or burning yourself!), flip the plate and frittata over into your skillet :) Cook for about a minute, then flip back onto your plate "top side up" and it's ready to serve!
*I actually forgot to add the salt and pepper to this, but the feta has a nice salty flavor and it didn't even need the added sodium!
