A Lighter Frittata

So, I have made this before and used cream and lots of fattening cheese.  It was delicious as ever by the way.  However, this morning I was on a mission.  I decided to make a lighter frittata.  Like always, my hope was to create a recipe that would make someone say "there is no way that is healthy."  Well, this morning brought lots of success to that statement and I have to say that I like it even better than the not-so-healthy one.

Goat Cheese + Veggie Frittata 


  • 6 large eggs (separate into 4 egg whites, 2 whole eggs)
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 tbs of olive oil
  • 1 cup of frozen spinach (cooked- just microwave to save time)
  • 1/3 or 1/2 cup of sliced green onion
  • 1/3 or 1/2 cup diced tomato
  • 1/3 cup of diced green bell pepper
  • Sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste.
How To:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small mixing bowl whisk together the six eggs (remember to use 4 egg whites, 2 whole eggs).  Pour in the low fat milk.  Then, crumble in the goat cheese.  Whisk lightly to retain the consistency of the crumbled cheese. 

Meanwhile, turn the heat up about medium on a frying pan with 1 tbs. of olive oil and all the diced veggies.  Add in salt and pepper and just a dash of garlic powder for some extra taste.  

Once the veggies are completely warmed (about 4 minutes), pour in the egg mixture slowly to cover all the veggies.  (I even used spray olive oil around all the cooked veggies and side of the pan to ensure that the eggs don't stick).  

Cook for about 6 minutes or until the sides begin to fold in.

Then, place the frying pan into the oven for about 10-15 minutes.  You can check to see how much longer you need by touching it.  If it is too wobbly in the pan, let it keep cooking.  With all the cheese its hard to over cook :)

Grab your oven mitt and place the frittata in the pan onto the stove.  With a spatula, go around and under the frittata to help pull it up.  

Then, get a large cutting board and place it on top of the pan.  Hold the pan and the cutting board tightly together and flop the pan upside down onto the board so the frittata comes out.  You can then grab another cutting board and do the same so that the pretty side of the frittata is up right. 

**This is incredibly easy to cook and make.  If the directions are confusing, feel free to watch Giada's video where she cooks a frittata- it may help.  

This is a great recipe for guests!  Very affordable and everyone loves it!
