Skinny on Weight Watchers Greek Frittata with Spinach and Feta
You can make a frittata with just about anything you have on hand. Make it your own by using similar quantities of your favorite veggies or cheese instead of the spinach and feta, if you prefer.
The recipe calls for fresh dill, but if you don’t have access to fresh herbs don’t let it dissuade you. This will still be delicious with some combination of dried herbs such as dill, basil, oregano or Italian seasoning instead.
To make keep this frittata low in fat and high in protein, it calls for liquid egg whites such as Egg Beaters. Feel free to use whatever combination of egg whites and/or whole eggs that makes you happy.
Because I’m on maintenance and over my fear of fat, I tend to use whole eggs instead. Just remember to adjust your points accordingly.
Both Rod and I thought the combination of flavors in this frittata were stellar.
A perfect option for Meatless Monday, I’d happily eat this tasty Greek Frittata for breakfast, lunch, or dinner any day of the week.
