Egg White Frittata

Fluffy, tasty egg white frittata that looks pretty and festive. I used Parmesan, smoked salmon and basil, but obviously you can use other cheeses such as cheddar or goat cheese, and experiment with different herbs.

Ingredients
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 8 large egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 4 oz smoked salmon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray two small (6 inch), oven-safe skillets (such as cast iron skillets) with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Using an electric hand whisk, beat the egg whites with salt and pepper until foamy. Add the Parmesan and whisk to incorporate.
  3. Heat the skillets over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Pour the egg mixture into the skillets. Arrange the salmon pieces and basil strips on top of the eggs. Cook about 3 minutes, until bottom is set, then transfer to the oven to finish cooking, 10-15 more minutes. Frittatas are done when puffy and golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool 5 minutes in skillets, then carefully loosen the edges with a spatula, slice and serve.
