This Greek Egg White Frittata is a simple healthy recipe made with fresh ingredients and can be enjoyed any time of day!
I am a HUGE lover of anything breakfast and second to breakfast is hands down Greek food. So much so, that if Greek is on the menu, you know that’s what I’m ordering! An EVEN BETTER option is when I can get the best of both worlds and have Greek and breakfast all at the same time! GENIUS!
I know it’s hard to believe that I would ever choose a frittata over pancakes, but when I’m out to eat, most restaurants do not offer gluten free pancakes. AND lets be real, I make the best pancakes in town – so why would I ever go out for pancakes when I can make them at home 🙂 (Check out these 3-Ingredient Pancakes and these Low Carb Coconut Protein Pancakes).
But let’s get back to Greek. I had the chance to visit Greece about a year ago. We went to Athens and Crete and both were absolutely incredible! The history of Athens alone blew my mind, the beautiful views and landscape that Crete had to offer was absolutely picturesque and the food…OH…MY…GOSH. THE FOOD! Everything was so fresh and bursting with flavor and because I love Greek food so much, it was like a dream come true!
So I thought, let’s take the flavors of the Greek/Mediterranean cuisine I love so much and pop that in a frittata. BAM! There ya have it, the best of both worlds with this Greek Style Egg White Frittata! It’s a super healthy option and if you don’t want to eat a pita, this is much lower on the carbohydrate side! This frittata pops with Mediterranean flavors and spices and the element of crumbled melted feta cheese will win you over in just one bite!
- 4 egg whites
- ⅛ cup red onions, chopped
- ¼ cup spinach, chopped
- 1 oz light feta, crumbled
- 2 tbs kalamatta olives, sliced
- Greek seasoning to taste - [mix of onion, mint, oregano, garlic, salt]
- Turn oven on Broil Setting.
- While oven is pre-heating, heat non-stick skillet over low-medium heat. I use this Calphalon 10-Inch Omelette Pan
- Spray pan on stove top with non-stick cooking spray, then pour in egg whites.
- Add red onions, spinach, ½ oz feta cheese, kalamatta olives, and seasonings.
- Cover with lid and let sit for about 5 minutes, or until egg whites look almost cooked through.
- Remove cover from pan, sprinkle remaining feta cheese on top of frittata
- Place pan in oven on broil setting for about 1-2 minutes or until cheese looks melted and top of frittata is slightly golden.
