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:
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 0.67 cup
water 1 cup
fat-free milk 1 cup

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


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


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.


Preheat broiler.


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


Place pan under the broiler for 30 seconds to 1 minute until the top is set, but not brown. Remove and cut in half. Slide halves onto 2 plates and serve with toast.


Place oatmeal in a microwave-safe bowl and add water.


Microwave on high 3 minutes.


Place in two bowls and serve with skim milk.
