A healthy cast iron skillet frittata
My family sure does love Sunday brunch! We love spending time together and lazy Sunday mornings are perfect to do just that! I will always have the memories we create, sleeping in, watching some fun cartoons, and gathering at the breakfast table are all cherished family moments.
We love a good breakfast recipe, and I do strive to serve tasty dishes that we’ll all love, but they’ve gotta be healthy, too. Low fat, low-calorie foods full of nutrients are so important, I have found that AllWhites Egg Whites make it easier for me to enjoy eggs for breakfast without removing and wasting the yolk. AllWhites® are 100% liquid egg whites that come in a convenient carton, they’re a great fat-free, cholesterol-free, and low-calorie alternative to regular eggs.
Healthier for you egg whites
I came across this recipe for Spinach and Feta Wraps on the AllWhites® website, it sounded so good that I had to try it at home! I thought, what if we could cut some of the calories by scrapping the tortilla wrap? After shuffling around some of the ingredients, I came up with a meatless, protein-packed, veggie-filled, egg white frittata, and it was AH-MAZING!
Chorizo and Vegetable Frittata Recipe In A Cast Iron Skillet
- 1 16 oz. carton AllWhites® Egg Whites
- 1 cup soy chorizo (or your favorite kind)
- 1/4 cup red onion, sliced
- 1/2 large heirloom tomato, sliced
- 1/2 cup fresh spinach, diced
- 1/8 cup fresh mixed herbs (I used basil, parsley, oregano cilantro)
- 1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Large cast-iron skillet
Step 1: Prep oven, saute the onion and the chorizo
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Grease cast-iron skillet and saute chorizo and red onion for 2-3 minutes on the stovetop over medium heat. If your cast iron skillet is already seasoned, you may not have to grease it. Learn more about seasoning your cast iron skillet.
Step 2: Add vegetables, herbs, and eggs
Remove from heat, spread chorizo and onion mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan. Add your spinach, layer tomato slices over the top, then sprinkle with herbs. Pour the AllWhite® Egg Whites into the skillet over the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3: Bake your cast iron skillet frittata
Next, pop your cast iron skillet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. When the chorizo and vegetable frittata recipe finished, remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle feta cheese on top of the frittata and serve. Will you look at this delicious masterpiece?
I really like how this veggie frittata turned out, lean protein from the AllWhite® Egg Whites paired with the flavor of chorizo, fresh vegetables, and herbs make this complete and healthy meal! Serve with fresh fruit on the side, your family is in for a real treat for Sunday brunch.
