We are big fans of eggs in this house. The only issue with eggs is that each egg only contains 6g of protein. So when you are having a few for a meal, it’s hard to get as much protein in as chicken, beef or fish would provide. But not to worry, our Prottata is a veggie packed, protein packed fritatta that won’t disappoint! Great on a hot summer night served cold, or serve hot and fresh out of the oven.
JMTraining Prottata (makes 4 servings):
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
2 cups raw spinach
250g Turkey Kolbassa, sliced in half moons
175g all natural sliced ham, cubed
6 eggs and 500g egg whites, beaten together well
salt and pepper
1 cup of cherry tomatoes, cut in half and reserved
1) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In an oven safe, deep pan, cook your onions, peppers and mushrooms until softened (5 mins). Then add in your spinach, cooking an additional 2 mins until the spinach is wilted. If you have any liquid in the pan, drain it. Then add in the ham, sausage and beaten eggs (seasoned with salt and pepper). Make sure everything is combined well.
2) Put the skillet in the oven without the top and cook for approx 30 minutes or until cooked through (it should jiggle slightly but not look liquid-y in the middle). Turn your broiler on and cook on the top rack for approx 3-5 mins or until slightly browned on top. Enjoy with a side salad or simply on it’s own. Its great hot or cold 🙂
