Perfect Saturday or Sunday morning breakfast for the family. Here’s a meatless frittata that is packed with natural ingredients and nutrients. Hubby loves making breakfast on Saturday mornings with our little one. Instead of Belgium Waffles, I asked them to make this light and delicious frittata. #HealthyMamaHealthyFam!

What’s new: used 100% egg whites, organic low sodium beans, natural-minimally processed cheese, natural-bottled sweet red peppers, vegetable oil and organic half and half- instead of whole milk to bring the calorie count down further and increase the heart-healthy quotient.

This is a pretty easy recipe and can serve as a base to adding more veggies to appeal to your family’s taste. I did not use the jalapeño or avocado but included it in the revised recipe below for you. Both would add to the flavor, so I suggest you give them a try- I didn’t have either on hand so I didn’t use them. What extra veggies would you include? Share by posting below!

INGREDIENTS: Makes 6 servings.

^10 serving(s) All Whites Egg Whites , 10 egg whites , 1 package
^1½ serving(s) Publix GreenWise Organic Half and Half, 3 tbsp
½ tsp table salt
⅛ tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
3½ serving(s) Publix GreenWise Market Organic Black Beans, One 15 oz can, rinsed and drained
2 serving(s) Sargento reduced fat 4 cheese Mexican shredded, 1/4 cup
½ cup(s) fresh tomato(es), diced
6 Tbsp uncooked scallion(s), 3 thinly sliced green onions , fresh
¼ cup(s) cilantro, fresh, snipped
3 serving(s) Mancini Roasted Red Peppers, Jar, 3/4 cup chopped
1 small jalapeño pepper(s), seeded and chopped
½ item(s) avocado , or one small avocado , seeded, peeled and chopped

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat broiler. In a large bowl combine egg whites , half and half, salt and black pepper.

2. In a large broiler proof skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add egg white mixture; stir in beans and roasted peppers. As egg white mixture sets, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until egg white mixture is almost set (surface will be moist).

3. Place skillet under broiler, 4-5 inches from the heat. Broil for ◴ 2 minutes or just until top is set. ^Remove skillet and sprinkle cheese. Place skillet in broiler until cheese melts. To serve, top with fresh tomato, green onions and cilantro.

One serving is one wedge for 5pp. The fresh ingredients added atop upon serving make a big difference, don’t go without. We dolloped one tbsp of reduced fat sour cream (additional points) on each wedge and it truly brought it all together. Delicious!
