Broccoli Cheese Mini Frittatas

Happy Easter!

Last week, I told you that I had a vlog post coming for you.  I have debated putting it up on here, mainly because I think I sound like a total goob, but decided to post it anyway.  🙂

Some things to keep in mind as you watch this:

I had no plans of doing this, but I was messing with the camera on m-swag while waiting for my frittatas to cool, and somehow I ended up deciding to do a recipe post in this fashion.

I know I tripped over my words several times, but since I was just “winging it” I decided to leave it and not redo the whole video.

Apparently little frozen cubes of basil save my life…whatever that means.

Yeah.  I’m a dork.

Anyway – it’s basically the same recipe as this one, except I used broccoli and onions sauteed in Brummel & Brown yogurt spread.  You could sub in whatever vegetables you have on hand.

I’m excited that tomorrow I get to move on to Phase 2 of South Beach (even though I’ve kind of taken a break this weekend and have indulged in some sweet treats).  If you have any SB recipes (or low carb in general), please feel free to link them up in the comments!

I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Easter Sunday!

 

 

 

My on-the-go breakfast

Good evening loves!  I hope that you have enjoyed another wonderful day.  I don’t know about where you are, but the weather here is unbelievably gorgeous.  I could definitely get used to this. 🙂

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m doing phase one of the South Beach eating plan.  If you know of anyone who has done this plan, you probably have heard them go on and on about how sick they are of eggs for breakfast.  I enjoy eggs, but I like variety in my meals, and it can easily get boring eating the same thing to start each day.

To prevent breakfast boredom, I started thinking about all my breakfast recipes (I swear that I’ll one day have a recipe page) and which ones would be acceptable at this stage in my eating plan.  Immediately, my mini frittata cups came to mind!  I made a few changes based on the ingredients I already had on hand, and this recipe was the end result.

(this is actually my caramelized onion and spinach mini frittatas that I made another time, but you get the idea – the ones this time were much larger and fluffier)

On-the-Go Mini Frittatas (makes 12 mini frittatas)

5 whole eggs
1 cup liquid egg whites (you could use all egg beaters instead of using whole eggs as well)
chopped onion
chopped mushrooms Continue reading ‘My on-the-go breakfast’
