Feta & Vegetable Mini Frittatas

Feta & Vegetable Mini Frittatas.

If you’re looking for a light but flavorful brunch option, these Feta & Vegetable Mini Frittatas are a great choice.  We used eggs and egg whites to reduce the calories and such without sacrificing flavor.

We incorporated a variety of veggies that were waiting patiently for their time to shine.  The beauty of this recipe is you don’t need to run to the market, it’s a perfect chance to eat out of the fridge/pantry as we often like to do.

We had one last summer squash from the Farmers Market in the fridge that I grated (then squeezed between paper towels to remove excess moisture).  I added a small amount of matchstick carrots, which I microwaved for about 45 seconds to take the edge off.  An open jar of roasted red peppers sat in the fridge…pick me, pick me….so I diced up one of those.  Then we added a sliced scallion and a handful of spinach leaves.

As a bonus, an open tub of feta cheese and cream cheese added just enough flavor punch and creaminess to our frittatas.  Btw, no one will ever know if you use reduced fat versions of these cheeses.  Trust me.

I’d like to tell my healthy eating buddy at the office that I’m bringing in leftovers to share, but sigh…there are none left.  I had a plate of them leftover in the fridge and found they made a wonderful protein packed snack.  And these Feta & Vegetable Mini Frittatas weigh in at only 2 WW Pts+ each.  I feel another batch of these are in our future.
