Cheese, Onion, and Vegetable Egg White Frittata Recipe – 3 Points +

Cheese, Onion, and Vegetable Egg White Frittata

Frittata is such a fancy word for what it really is – basically, Italy’s version of an open faced omelet. And don’t let that fancy word fool you into thinking it’s some complicated dish, because it’s one of the easiest egg recipes ever. I love to make a frittata for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner…whatever! It’s easy delicious and very low in Points Plus. And it takes just minutes to make. To keep my version light, I use all egg whites. You can absolutely use whole eggs or Egg Beaters instead, if you prefer. I also use a good, reduced-fat sharp cheddar for some extra flavor. The wonderful flavor of the onions and vegetables make a perfect enhancement for the mild egg whites too. You can really use any veggies you want in this frittata, but I chose bell pepper rings and cherry tomato slices because I love the touch of acidity and flavor they add. But I love to mix it up all the time with whatever veggies I have on hand. This is a great Weight Watchers Easter Brunch Recipe idea!
