Dietitian's Tip: 

Serve with whole grain bread, fresh fruit, and a cold glass of milk for a well-balanced and nutrient-rich meal. Frittatas aren’t only for breakfast and brunch – they pair wonderfully with salads for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients: 

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 shallots, finely chopped
½ pounds mushrooms, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Black pepper to taste
3 eggs
5 large egg whites
1 tablespoon milk or fat-free half and half
¼ cup fresh parmesan cheese, grated

Preparation: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Stir in shallots and sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Add chopped mushroom, parsley, thyme and black pepper.

In a medium bowl whisk eggs, egg whites, parmesan, and milk. Add the egg mixture to the skillet, making sure eggs cover all the mushrooms. When the edges begin to set (about 2 minutes) move the skillet to the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until frittata is completely cooked. Serve warm, cut into 4 equal wedges.

Serving size: 1 wedge
