Green Pepper and Onion Frittata With Oatmeal

Number of Servings: 2

Serving Size: 1/2 recipe

Plump, flavorful frittatas make a nice breakfast change. They take a little longer to make than scrambled eggs or omelets. Make them on the weekend or make them the night before and heat them in the microwave the next morning.

Name: Amount:
Frittata
whole wheat bread (about 1 oz each) 2 slices
Olive oil spray
whole eggs 2
egg whites 4
frozen chopped onion, defrosted 1 cup
frozen chopped green bell pepper, defrosted 1 cup
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Oatmeal
oatmeal 0.67 cup
water 1 cup
fat-free milk 1 cup
1:

Toast bread and spray one side of each slice with olive oil spray.

2:

Mix whole eggs, egg whites, onion and green pepper together. Add salt and pepper to taste.

3:

Heat a 9- to 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and spray with olive oil spray. Add the egg mixture and turn the heat down to low.

4:

Preheat broiler.

Cook without browning the bottom 10 minutes. The eggs will be set, but the top a little runny.
