Early mornings are busy as we get our kids ready for school, ourselves ready for work, the pets fed and walked, and the day’s schedule established. Part of that morning preparation involves breakfast. Research shows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it wakes up your brain, provides important nutrients, gives you energy, and helps to balance blood sugar so you don’t snack on sugary foods throughout the day.
Mini Breakfast Frittatas
4 egg whites
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted organic butter
1 ½ cups drained rinsed canned (or fresh) artichoke hearts, cut into wedges
½ cup spinach
2-3 scallions, sliced
¾ teaspoon herbs of your choice
2 small red potatoes, cooked and thinly sliced [optional]
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, egg whites, salt, pepper and 2 Tbsp water. In a medium non-stick skillet with an ovenproof handle, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Sauté the artichokes, scallions and seasoning until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the potatoes.
Add the egg mixture and cook, stirring until the eggs just begin to set, about 2 min.
Evenly distribute the vegetables (add the spinach here) in the pan and cook, without stirring, until the eggs are almost set, 5-6 minutes.
Invert and cut into wedges.
