Simple Meatless Spinach Frittata

Have you ever heard of the saying, "Fail to plan. Plan to fail?" Well it's pretty true when you are trying to lose weight. I have found that I am more successful at eating clean when I plan menus on the weekend for the entire week. I also know that during the week I have no time and having as many meals as possible made in advance is always a good thing. It's so easy when you are in a rush to pop something in the microwave or toaster and within a few minutes you have a nutritious breakfast. One of my go to meals for breakfast has always been my Simple Meatless Spinach Frittata. Mainly it is my go to because I have the recipe memorized and it can be made the night before when the oven is still hot from baking dinner. Also, it is easily modified if I am trying to get lean.

The truth is, I'm not sure where I got this recipe from but I've been making it for years. I even think that I've made variations on the original recipe because I remember I used to make this with turkey bacon and turkey sausage. Without further delay, here is a picture and the recipe:

  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbls. olive oil
  • 1 Pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

In a saute pan, heat olive oil and saute bell peppers and onions until tender. Add spinach, salt, pepper and garlic powder and saute for another 5 minutes.

Spray cooking spray into an 8-inch glass dish and place sauted mix at the bottom.

In a bowl, beat all 6 eggs and pour over vegetables in glass dish.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Makes 6 servings.

Now isn't that a nice and easy way to start your weekday off?
