As I have said before, and will say again I am OBSESSED with breakfast foods! It’s not unusual for me to eat breakfast at least twice a day – typically when I wake up like normal people, and again as my dinner or even just before going to bed.  Who wouldn’t love a meal with hot, cheesy egg dishes, sweet pancakes, waffles or french toast and lots of fruit?!

Typically during the week I have quick grab-and-go meals or else something I can make the night before and can reheat to eat at work in the morning.  This breakfast frittata is perfect for weekend mornings to eat fresh from the oven, and it also keeps very well to make the night before and reheat in the morning! It has minimal carbs and lots of protein and cheesy flavor, and can be customized with whatever vegetables and meats you please!!

Baked Cottage Cheese Frittata

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Hash Browns (I used store bought, as that was all I had on hand, but cutting your own potatoes would be great as well!)
  • 4 slices Chicken Bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped Red Bell Peppers
  • 1/2 cup chopped Spinach
  • 2 Egg
  • 1 cup Egg Whites
  • 1 cup Low Fat/Fat Free Cottage Cheese
  • 20g Light Marble Cheese, Grated

 

Directions:

  1. In a small greased baking dish, bake the hash browns, bacon and peppers at 375-F for about 15 minutes, or until hash browns are beginning to turn a golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl whisk together egg, egg whites, and cottage cheese with some salt and pepper.
  3. Once hash browns are done, add in the egg mixture to the baking dish and stir everything together. I used 10g of cheese mixed into everything else, and 10g on top.
  4. Bake for an additional 20 – 25 minutes or until eggs are cooked and no longer liquid. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
