Frittata Florentine Recipe

My family is all about brunchy meals like this gorgeous Italian omelet. Lucky for us, it’s loaded with ingredients we tend to have at the ready. —Jenny Flake, Newport Beach, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 6 large egg whites
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 turkey bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

    "To dgrammie60 Yes, total of 9 eggs (6 will be whites only) I would use liquid egg whites (carton). Appr. 1 cup would be equivalent to 6 egg whites--the carton will tell you equivalents. I will have to try it--sounds really good"

    "The egg ingredients confuse me. Are you using a total of 9 eggs? For the 3 large eggs - use the whole egg? Sorry I'm having a blonde moment."

    "Always good. If time is short, use a spinach/artichoke dip with cheese (TGIF) as the base and add onion, mixed peppers if you want."

    "We make this a lot when I need something quick and satisfying to feed the kids. I usually have all the ingredients and it can be easily modified with whatever you have on hand like instead of bacon I have used turkey sausage."

    "In answer to Raven05032's question about using egg whites, my dh has high chorlestrol and I use egg whites all the time, but my secret is that I add a drop of yellow food coloring per white and he says you can't tell the difference. Yellow food coloring is fine foe adults, but maybe not so good for some children.PS. It's cheaper than egg beaters and only about 17 calories per white."

    "I made this morning for my family and we all loved it! It wasn't difficult to make. It was not too heavy yet definitely filling. The flavor was delicious. The only change I made was using regular bacon instead of turkey bacon (I figured it was only 2 slices, not all that bad nutrtionally!)"

    "Has anyone tried making this with ALL eggwhites to eliminate the cholesterol & additional fat?"
