I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Spinach Frittata

Healthier version of frittatas.    Easy to make and so very good.  Great for brunch or dinner.  As near as I can figure it's about 140 calories per slice.

(serves 6)

*4 large eggs
*4 large egg whites
*1/4 cup reduced-fat swiss cheese, grated

*1 onion, chopped
*1 garlic clove, minced

*1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
*2 teaspoon butter
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1/4 teaspoon black pepper

~Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
~In a medium bowl, whisk eggs & egg whites.
~Combine swiss cheese, salt & pepper & set aside.

~Saute red & green peppers in butter for 2 minutes.
~Add onions & garlic, cook for another 8-10 minutes.
~Turn up heat to high and add spinach.
~Cook for 4-5 minutes, until spinach is wilted.
~Add the eggs & cheese.
~Turn heat to low and and cook for about 5 minutes or until the edges start to set.
~Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the eggs are completely set.
