Are you enjoying eggs more often now that they are zero points on the new Freestyle program? I am.
I am also having fun experimenting with one serving recipes I can make in minutes in the microwave. It turns out you can use your microwave and a mug to make lots more than cake!
Like frittata for example. This streamlined mug frittata takes less than 5 minutes from start to finish, making it a healthy and delicious way to nourish your body, mind and spirit before stepping out the door for the day.
Enjoy this frittata straight from the mug or serve it atop a toasted English muffin or slice of toast. Alternatively, cut it in half and roll it up into a tortilla or tuck it inside a pita half.
Feel free to change this recipe up to suit your tastes and what you have on hand…
Variations (Adjust points accordingly)
No cottage cheese? Substitute an equal amount of nonfat or reduced fat ricotta.
No green onions? Substitute chives or just skip them Basil Pesto Frittata: omit the green onions and Parmesan. Stir 1 tablespoon basil pesto into the eggs.
Greek Frittata: Add 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano with the eggs. Replace the parmesan with 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese and add 2 tablespoon chopped drained roasted peppers with the chopped green onions.
Ham and Cheese Frittata: Add 1 tablespoons chopped cooked ham.
Prep ahead: Whisk the mixture together in the mug. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
