Hi guys! Happy Friday! This week fleeeewww by for me, and I am more than ready for the weekend. Besides a date night with Travis and a friend’s birthday, we don’t have too many plans, so I am really looking forward to just relaxing on the couch for a few hours.
I thew together this incredibly delicious breakfast frittata last weekend with ingredients we just had in our fridge. It was the perfect morning fuel to get us ready for our Saturday workout. This frittata is PACKED with protein from eggs and mozzarella, and if you serve it with a slice of whole wheat toast, it’s the ideal balanced breakfast.
I love frittatas because they look impressive, but they are honestly SO easy to make (this one came together in under 15 minutes). Frittatas are also a great way to use up any leftover ingredients in your fridge; almost anything tastes good: roasted red pepper and goat cheese, kale and cherry tomatoes, sausage and leeks, and so on!
As soon as I took one bite of this frittata, I said to Travis that the flavor combination tasted just like a pizza. Yeah, it was that good. Try this recipe this weekend, and if you don’t have these exact ingredients, just follow the cooking method below. You’ll be sure to love it!
- 3 whole eggs + 2 egg whites
- 3 Tablespoons milk (I used 1%, but any kind will do)
- 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- ⅛ cup onion, chopped
- ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes*, chopped
- ¼ cup roasted red peppers, chopped
- 3-4 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced thin
- 2 Tablespoons fresh basil, torn
- Salt and pepper
- Turn the oven on to BROIL. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, egg whites and milk. Season with ⅛ teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
- Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-low heat. Add the olive oil to the pan and once hot, add the onion, sun-dried tomato, and roasted red peppers. Saute for about 3 minutes. Pour in the egg mixture and allow to cook for about 30 seconds. You can slowly push the mixture around if you need to spread out the veggies. Add in the basil and place the sliced mozzarella over the eggs. Make sure to NOT cook the eggs completely - they should still look wet.
- Place the pan in the oven on the top rack and broil on HIGH for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese begins to brown slightly. Remove from the oven and let cool for 1 minute before serving.
