Lately I love baked egg dishes! After making my pizza quiche I’ve started making a quiche or frittata every week. This frittata is so light and fluffy it’s the perfect star for your next brunch. The best part of this recipe is that it is LOADED with veggies! I love starting my day off with vegetables, best way for me to have a healthy day is to start with a healthy breakfast!

Now before you start thinking to yourself, “egg whites but all the nutrients are in the yolks!” I know this, and I’m definitely one team whole eggs, they’re delicious and nutritious I totally agree. However, I had a large amount of egg whites to use in my freezer after making fresh pasta last month. While the egg yolks do provide a great flavor to dishes I find just using the whites in the frittata makes it fluff up a lot more in the oven, it’s just so beautiful.

Unlike a quiche, a frittata should definitely be eating shortly after baking. When you remove this frittata from the oven it will look like a beautiful souffle, so you definitely want to serve it before it falls. That being said, I definitely saved the left overs and reheated it all week. It was still delicious, just not as pretty. Leftover egg white frittata served with half an avocado is a perfect breakfast in my book!
