Happy Wednesday! Today I have a great low carb recipe that packs a healthy punch of protein. While there are lots of similar recipes out there, most have meat in them. Instead, I opted for adding Greek yogurt for extra protein and lots of flavorful herbs. Now, for all of you carnivores out there, including my Dear Firstborn--"Mom, you have to put meat in them!"--go ahead and add your lean sausage or bacon. I just prefer my eggs and pizza sans meat!
For 12 servings, I combined 6 eggs and 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt. Mix until frothy but don't be concerned if smaller lumps of yogurt remain. It will have a creamy, ricotta cheese like consistency when cooked. I greased the muffin tins sparingly with coconut oil, which is super duper healthy and also has a high smoke point. Your frittatas will not taste like coconut--promise!
Add your choice of ingredients to muffin tins before adding the eggs. I added cheese, spinach, thyme and cilantro to mine.
Now add the egg mixture. Tins should be about 3/4 full. Cook at 350, 15-20 minutes. I package mine in snack size zip-locks, 2 to a bag. This makes them easy to grab and provides a healthy breakfast or snack to go. In fact, why not make a few batches ahead of time for tasty Superbowl nibbling?!
For the recipe listed, two frittatas offer 9.5 grams of protein, 212 calories and 0 carbs--Enjoy!
