Just popping in to share one of my favorite super easy breakfasts lately, which also makes a great protein-packed snack. (I like adding a piece to a toasted English muffin for a quickie egg sandwich.) It’s the easiest egg white fritatta you’ll ever make. Seriously, it doesn’t get easier than this!
- 8 egg whites or 1 cup liquid egg whites
- 1/4 cup milk
- your choice of delicious veggies, herbs, cheeses, meats, etc. (I’m digging tomato, basil, and goat cheese lately)
- salt + pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a cast-iron/oven-safe skillet (I have this one and love it) with butter/cooking spray/oil.
Pour egg whites into the skillet and then place your tasty ingredients inside.
Cook for 18 minutes or until egg whites are cooked all the way through.
Remove from oven, cut into quarters, and serve immediately!
Makes 4 servings
I’ve been looking for a good egg casserole recipe for brunch on Mother’s Day…I bet you could alter this to feed a small crowd and bake it in a casserole dish?! The tomato/basil/goat cheese combo sounds yummy!
@Melissa @ melissakolbeck.com:
2 cans whole green chilies
1 pkg sausage (your choice)
3 c. shredded cheese (your choice ~ I use sharp cheddar)
Put in 9×13 pan ~
1 pkg cooked sausage
beaten eggs ~ salt & pepper
Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Everyone loves it. 🙂
This one is a serious crowd-pleaser. Everyone loves it!! http://carrotsncake.com/2016/02/hash-brown-breakfast-bake.html
I added tator tots a few times to my recipe ~ everyone loved it. 🙂
Yay! So glad to hear that! 🙂
I use to be so afraid of making frittatas, something about putting the pan in the oven freaked me out! Silly right? This looks delicious glad I got over that because this looks delish!
Me too! But once you do it, it’s the easiest thing ever and you’ll do it all the time!
love frittatas! I always just throw in whatever veggies I have on hand!! so simply and keeps well for the week ahead.
Looks delish! Just curious, why do you eat just the egg whites and not the yolks?
I eat egg yolks ALL the time; I just had a container of whites that I wanted to use up. I make this frittata with both whites and yolks. (Turns out great both ways!) It just depends on what we have in the house.
YUM! Now I have to go find me a cast iron skillet…. Definitely going to try this later this week.
I’m literally eating this for lunch right now and I can’t believe I’ve never made it before – so quick, yummy and healthy!
So glad you like it!!
Great recipe! and I love the pictures to go along. I love eating egg whites because they are pure protein. It helps me knock out a bunch of my protein requirements for the day, and although many do not like the taste of them, I believe egg whites can be cooked to taste good. They seem to take on the taste of whatever seasoning or mix-ins are used. My favorite veggies to use in egg whites are onions, peppers, and spinach. My favorite seasonings to use are salt, pepper, cayenne, and granulated garlic.
I love the idea of putting the skillet into the oven to cook. I always have a hard time flipping my omelettes and they usually end up in a scramble. Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I will be trying it out soon!
