I'd never made a frittata before yesterday, but Rachael Ray mentioned them on her show and apparently sparked a huge craving for my lunch!  And so, my chicken, tomato and cheese frittata was born...



I don't eat egg yolks, so my dish had to be created from Egg Beaters.  I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the substitution, but I am more than pleased with the final dish! Cheesy

I researched various frittata recipes and created this one from what I had on-hand.

Ingredients:
2 cups Egg Beaters (equivalent to 8 eggs)
1 grilled boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into small chunks
1/2 or so tomato, diced
2 1/2 slices fat free cheddar cheese (shredded cheese would be great!)
No Salt to taste
Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb to taste
Mrs. Dash Table Blend to taste
Canola oil

Optional garnish:
1/2 slice fat free cheddar cheese
3 cherry tomatoes, sliced
Chives

1.  Preheat oven to 350 F.

2.  Heat chicken and tomato in a small frying pan on stove, stirring often.

3.  Meanwhile, combine Egg Beaters, 2 1/2 slices cheese, No Salt and Mrs. Dash together in a mixing bowl.

4.  Coat bottom and sides of a 9" oven-safe pan with canola oil.  [I used this one from Wilton]

5.  Pour chicken and tomato into Egg Beaters mixing bowl.  Gently stir.

6.  Place the coated 9" oven-safe pan on stovetop over medium heat.  Pour the Egg Beaters and chicken mixture into the oven-safe pan.

7.  Cook 3 - 5 minutes over medium heat until the edges begin to set.

8.  Transfer pan onto top shelf of oven.  Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until fully cooked.

9.  Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes.

10.  Using oven mitts, place serving plate upside down on top of pan.  Carefully and swiftly, hold the plate in place while inverting the plate and pan.

You should now have a beautiful, golden brown frittata on a serving plate. Smiley  Garnish.



Cut, serve and eat!

I didn't know either, actually.  She mentioned something about making a frittata from egg and leftover pasta and then I was on a mission. Cheesy

I've never done a baked frittata, but that looks awesome (and easy)! Plus, since spring is coming around again my chickens are ramping up egg production so I've got eggs a-plenty -perfect timing!  Grin

I didn't know what a fritatta was either  Embarrassed    These things remind me of a quiche without the crust lol.... I would garnish this one you made with sour cream because sour cream should be it's own foodgroup  Cheesy Cheesy 

See, quiche....no crust, fritatta  Cheesy Cheesy
