Who has time for breakfast? You do, with these individual vegetable frittatas!

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup onion, small dice
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, small dice
  • 1 cup spinach, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • cooking oil
  • salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Melt some cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion, garlic and Italian seasoning until fragrant.
  2. Add bell pepper, cook until soft.
  3. Add spinach, half of the chives and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir, cover and set aside.
  4. Whisk eggs and egg whites. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Spray six muffin tins with non-stick spray. Fill with a layer of cooked veggies. Sprinkle a pinch or two of cheese, then top with beaten egg. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 15-20 minutes. Top with remaining chives.

Variation: Use chopped broccoli instead of spinach.
