This frittata recipe uses egg whites instead of whole eggs to reduce the amount of calories, fat and cholesterol.

Ingredients

(Serves 2)
  • 1/2 green or red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 fresh mushrooms, sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup salsa, reserve 2 tablespoons for garnish
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Heat the broiler. Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source.

Lightly coat a heavy, ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Place on the stove over medium heat and add peppers and mushrooms. Saute until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and 1/2 cup of the salsa. Pour the egg white mixture into the skillet with the vegetables and cook until partially set, about 5 minutes. Don't attempt to blend or scramble the mixture. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Place the skillet under the broiler and cook until the cheese is melted and eggs are set, about 5 minutes.

Divide the frittata in half and spoon onto individual plates. Garnish each serving with 1 tablespoon salsa and serve immediately.
