I am trying to increase our healthy protein and veggie consumption while lowering our carb intake so I decided to make a batch of these portion sized frittatas! They are quick and perfect for busy weekday mornings. Make them the night before and then just grab one in the morning and heat it up in the microwave! These are a little on the heavy spinach side (I love spinach) so you might want to add only half the bag of spinach if you are less enthused about the leafy green as I am.
You will need:
1 bag frozen spinach (16. oz)
1 cup kale, rinsed, drained, and roughly chopped (optional)
4-6oz. of feta cheese
1 red pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
salt, pepper, garlic powder
Start with the greens. I added the spinach (frozen) to the pan and let it thaw and cook through, then I added the fresh kale and let it cook down a bit. Season. Then, add the red pepper and onion and saute for a few minutes until the pepper and onions are tender.
Add the greens and veggies to a large bowl. Add the eggs, mix well. Then add the feta. Season with a little salt, garlic and pepper.
Prepare a muffin pan with some Pam and scoop in the mixture!
Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until the egg has ‘set’. Enjoy!
Again, mine are very spinach heavy so feel free to add only half the bag!
In other news, this was introduced to my kitchen…
I don’t think we will go ‘full Paleo’ as I wouldn’t wish a life of no cheese or fresh baked bread on my worst enemy but I am intrigued!
