What’s a frittata? Basically, it’s an omelet that requires no flipping (for those of us that haven’t quite mastered this technique), and it’s cooked in an iron skillet in the oven versus on the stovetop. With that short intro, there are so many reasons why I love them: they are easy to make, you can create lots of variations depending upon the ingredients that you add (i.e., spices, veggies) and they can be made super healthy. How? I’ll show you! The Veggie n’ Cheese Frittata that I created for you today has only 164 calories and 2 grams of fat! Enjoy for breakfast or any time of day!
