Cuisine: Breakfast
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • ¼ cup nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon ground thyme
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ medium leek, sliced lengthwise and thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (8-ounce) package crimini or baby bella mushrooms, thinly sliced (3 cups)
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat broiler
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, thyme, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the leeks and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds more. Add the mushrooms and cook until softened and the mushrooms release their liquid, about 8 minutes.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the cooked vegetables and cook until the eggs solidify, about 8 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the top evenly with the cheese and carefully place the skillet in the broiler until the cheese has melted and the eggs have set, about 5 minutes.
  6. Allow the frittata to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into 4 even slices.
