You’ve probably heard of a frittata if you have been on a keto diet program.
If you are not familiar with frittatas, check this recipe out – they are wonderful to keep in the fridge for snacks or meals, but they are especially good to have around if you are watching your weight.
The perfect frittata is creamy, custardy, and full of veggies.
Frittatas transport well, so you can bring slices to picnics or pack them up for work or school lunches.
You can get creative with leftover frittatas, too — use a slice as a sandwich filling, or break it up for easy breakfast tacos.
Basic Frittata Recipe
Remember that not every recipe, eating program, or “diet” is right for everyone, so modify recipes to fit your personal program.
- 6 organic eggs, whipped just until the egg yolks and whites are blended
- 1 1/2 tablespoons full-fat dairy
- 1 1/2 cups cooked and seasoned vegetables or other add-ins
- 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated or crumbled cheese
- a pinch of salt
Use organic full-fat dairy such as:
- heavy cream
- whole milk
- sour cream
- plain yogurt
Pre-cook your vegetables, and use a lot of them.
Vegetables should be tender, seasoned and cooked before adding the eggs. Pre-cook your vegetables by sautéing, roasting, or steaming them to bring out their best nutrients before you add them to your eggs.
Cheese is OK.
Cheese offers extra flavor and increases a creamy factor. Any of your favorite cheese choices are good, but white, dry cheeses, like Parmesan, are the healthiest in my opinion.
Don’t overcook frittatas.
Keep an eye on your frittata when it’s in the oven. Cook the eggs until they are puffed and opaque.
Frittata Flavor Additions
Try adding some bells and whistles to your frittatas:
- spinach, artichoke and feta cheese
- broccoli, cheddar and green onion
- Cremini mushrooms, arugula and goat cheese
- cherry tomatoes, zucchini, mozzarella and basil
- yellow onion, carrot, bell pepper, goat cheese and chives
