Spinach and Mushroom Frittata with Goat Cheese

If you are in search of that nice Sunday morning brunch, you have come to the right place! Especially if you have a hankering for a healthy egg recipe with some nice vegetables and a bit of cheese. This is slightly adapted from Weight Watchers Healthy Cooking Basics Recipe Cookbook and comes out to 4 pts per serving. This works equally well with goat cheese or feta cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup Egg Beaters egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 (6 ounce) bag baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup fat-free garlic-onion croutons
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  1. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper in large bowl.
  2. Spray 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add mushrooms and remaining 1/4 tsp salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and most of liquid evaporates, about 8 minutes. Add red onion. Add spinach, in batches if necessary, and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted and most of liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Sprinkle vegetable mixture with croutons; pour egg mixture evenly over croutons. Reduce heat and cook until eggs are set, 7-8 minutes (but do not stir).
  5. Arrange tomato slices on top of eggs; sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place skillet under broiler and broil frittata 5 inches from heat until top is lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes. Cut into 4 wedges.

I would have liked to take a picture of the finished plate, but it was gobbled up before I remembered!

This is considered 4 servings, 184 cals each, 9 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, 17 grams of protein.
