Eggwhite and Feta Frittata

Eggwhite and Feta Frittata

Spring is here..its been warm enough every day for over a week to be outside without a coat and with cropped pants..that’s Spring here in New England..aside from the constant rain…it better stinkin’ bring May flowers this year..I need a good Summer! I am in full blown Summer mode already..I wish I could go shopping and replace my entire closet..how fun would that be?! Shopping Spree anyone?

Eggwhite and Feta Frittata

So since I have a lot of dresses to fit into in the upcoming months, not to mention a darn bathing suit….after having a baby..bleh..I have been trying to eat a little lighter..Trying being the key word there. I love breakfast Frittatas! They’re so quick and easy, and the ingredients are SO interchangeable based on what is in your fridge! I love when I can make a breakfast and everyone gets to sit down at the same time to eat! I feel like so many times, one of us is still standing there pouring more waffle batter, buttering another toast, cooking another egg..etc. I love any kind of meal that we get to sit down together!

    I’ve never made a frittata using only egg whites, I love this idea! Plus – bacon and red onions? Two of my very favorite ingredients ever!

    I’m perpetually trying to eat lighter, and never having much success at staying away from allll of the candy everywhere! This recipe looks like a nice way to start my day (even if I end it eating a whole bag of M&Ms on my own ;-))
