Sunday Breakfast

On those rare occasions when we can shoo the animals off the table so we can eat, breakfast at our house usually consists of a bowl of instant oatmeal enhanced with leftover fruit from the bird's morning meal. If I do cook something special it's usually a healthy, low fat meal like this Crunchy Onion Spinach Frittata. I don't like mushy onions so I don't saute the onions first like it calls for in most frittata recipes.

Crunchy Onion Spinach Frittata

2 eggs
4 egg whites
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup spinach, cooked and drained very well
creamy horseradish to taste
1/2 tsp olive oil
2 slices Kraft 2% American Cheese

Set oven to broil.

Take a 6 inch non stick oven proof skillet and coat the bottom amd sides with the olive oil.

Place pan on burner set to medium heat.

Beat eggs and egg whites with skim milk, salt, pepper and creamy horseradish.

Add egg mixture to heated pan and stir in onion and spinach.

With a heatproof spatula, scrape cooked egg mixture from the bottom of the
pan towards the center and let the uncooked mixtue fil in the spaces until the egg mixture is completely set.

Shake the pan and loosen mixture from the sides so the firm eggs can move around the pan.

Tear cheese slices into strips and evenly distribute them over the top if the egg mixture.

Place pan under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve immediately.

Nice recipe! And will the kitty be dining on the bunny while you're eating?

Thanks! Actually it's Foster who was the bunny chasing (and bunny eating!) cat mentioned at

Buddy (in the pic) and Foster are slowly warming up to Chopper. Poor Chooper - he really wants to make friends with the cats and play with them, but the cats are not quite sure what to do about it.
