Breakfast for dinner…Frittata

by Lacy (MrsCoupon) on June 20, 2011

When you get bored with your rut of dinner recipes, try making breakfast. I usually make frittatas instead of quiches, just because its lower calories without a crust. A frittata is basically that a quiche without a crust. Here is how I make it.


5 eggs

1 cup of milk

1/2lb of turkey or chicken sausage

1 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella


Preheat oven to 375. Brown sausage in an oven safe skillet. (Hint, if you don’t have a skillet with an “oven safe” handle just wrap tin foil around the handle to keep it from melting.) In a separate bowl whisk together milk eggs and half the cheese. Once thoroughly incorporated pour mixture into skillet and top with remaining portion of the cheese. Place in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until the frittata is set and a toothpick come out clean.  This meal has a weight watchers points plus value of 8 with 4 servings. If you want to add a biscuit to this you can add one for a points plus value of 3.

Happy healthy eating!

until next time

I always read your recipes. Your cooking style is similar to mine. I started making crustless quiches many years ago when bisquick advertised their impossible pie recipes. Here’s one:
2 c. cut up fully cooked smoked ham
1 c. shredded natural Swiss cheese (4 oz.)
1/3 c. chopped green onions or chopped onion
2 c. milk
4 eggs
1 c. Bisquick baking mix
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease pie plate, 10″ x 1 1/2″. Sprinkle ham, cheese and onions in plate. Beat remaining ingredients until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on High or 1 minute with hand beater. Pour into plate. Bake until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. 6 to 8 servings.
I use whatever cheese I have on hand and you can substitute approx 12 slices cooked bacon for the ham. Very tasty.
