Not quite an omelet. Not really a quiche. What it is, however, is delicious! This high-protein dish features a healthy combo of eggs and egg whites, along with peppers, onions, and your favorite salsa. ¡Olè!
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 medium white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 cup salsa (use your favorite kind)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, combine milk, eggs, egg whites, salt, pepper, and cumin; blend with a whisk and set aside. Heat oil over medium heat in a 12-inch nonstick skillet with oven-safe handle. Add pepper and onion and sauté until tender. Pour egg mixture into pan with sautéed vegetables and cook without stirring until eggs are slightly set, then flip over. Place pan in oven and bake until eggs are cooked, about 5 minutes. Place frittata on a plate and top with salsa. Serves 1.
