Zucchini frittata


*I had more pictures but they decided to not work and I have already deleted them off my phone :(

I had some zucchinis I needed to use so I decided to use them with my favorite food - eggs! This was super easy and fast to make for my dinner tonight and will be my breakfast tomorrow morning :)

Ingredients:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. egg whites
  • 3 small zucchinis, shredded (2-3 cups)
  • handful of spinach
  • 1/4 c. white onion
  • 2 sprigs of green onion
  • 1/2 c. shredded cheese

Preheat a medium to large size pan on low to medium heat. Chop the onion and spray the pan with nonstick spray before adding them.

While those are cooking, wash and shred the zucchini and squeeze as much of the water out as you can. Use a strainer or paper towel to do this.

Once the onion is soft spread the zucchini in the pan and add a handful of spinach on top and put a lid on to let everything steam and wilt for about 5 minutes.

Pour the eggs over the veggies and push down any spinach that is sticking out and put the lid back on for another 5 minutes. Once it's mostly cooked through pop it into the oven on low broil with the rack higher or on high with the rack lower. Ovens vary but I cooked this for 6 minutes on low broil and then added the cheese and green onions for 3 minutes until the cheese was melted and brown.

Let cool for a few minutes so you don't burn your mouth and cut into quarters and enjoy!
