I love easy breakfasts, I’m a huge fan of the prepackaged breakfast sandwiches by Smart Ones but I’m really trying to avoid eating as much chemicals as possible which those things are loaded with. I’m not a big fan of cereal either so I decided to look for a recipe for frittatas that I could freeze myself and reheat in the mornings for a healthy and easy breakfast choice. I found this recipe awhile back in cooking light and I finally tested it out!!!

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2/3 cup chopped reduced-fat ham (about 2 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add ham; sauté 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add ham mixture, stirring with a whisk. Spoon mixture into 24 miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set.

While this recipe is not chemical free, the cooking spray I’m sure is not healthy for you at all but it’s definitely healthier than the prepackaged stuff. This recipe is very easy to make and has alot of flavor. I tweaked the recipe a tad because I didn’t have all the exact ingredients so instead of cheddar cheese i used leftover mexican 3 cheese blend from one of my taco nights. I didn’t have dried thyme so i used dried Italian Seasoning that has some of it in it along with oregano and basil. The recipe does not need salt because of the ham so do NOT add it! Unless you do a veggie version which I’m thinking of doing next time, maybe a curried mushroom and kale frittata? sounds yummy to me. These are perfectly bite sized and are really really good. The hard part is not eating them all in one sitting! Hope you guys enjoy this recipe
