Last week I promised you a new breakfast recipe and I delivered! This Mediterranean Beef Frittata is not only FULL of nutritious ingredients but it’s also absolutely scrumptious!
The ingredient roster for this recipe is stacked. Fueling you and your family with the essential nutrients they need is a piece of, well, frittata! When your breakfast contains nutrient-rich lean beef, you are provided with ample protein to keep you feeling satisfied throughout the morning! It also gives us iron, zinc and B vitamins. #winning Combine that with eggs, Greek yogurt and a bunch of nutrient-rich vegetables and you have a breakfast of champions! Serve with a side of whole wheat toast or oats and a glass of low-fat milk and you have yourself a completely balanced meal.
Make it ahead of time to have as a “re-heatable” breakfast option throughout the week or serve as weekend brunch!
1 lb lean ground beef
1 red pepper, diced
6-5 asparagus spears, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 Cup mushrooms, diced
1/2 Cup arugula, chopped
1 Tbsp minced garlic
Dash of salt & pepper
7 large eggs
1/4 Cup milk
1 6 oz. container NonFat Greek Yogurt
1 Cup Feta cheese
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1. Preheat oven to 425. Brown ground beef, draining any excess fat. Once beef is fully cooked, add red pepper, asparagus, onions, mushrooms, arugula, garlic, salt, pepper and combine evenly. Reduce heat and let simmer, stirring occasionally.
2. In a medium sized bowl, combine eggs, milk, Greek yogurt and feta. Whisk ingredients- whisk it real good.
3. Spray a 9 x 13 dish with cooking spray and evenly add beef and vegetable mixture. Top with egg mixture. You may have to stir it to make sure the feta cheese gets evenly distributed. Garnish with sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with oregano.
Now, I know what you’re all thinking, frittatas are supposed to be made in a pie dish- I know this. Here’s the deal, if I were having some fancy pants guests over and wanted to serve this recipe, then I would reduce it and bake it in a pie dish and make the presentation just right. Lucky for me, my family doesn’t wear fancy pants and this new mom is all about efficiency. I made this recipe BIG so I can get several meals out of it. 🙂 I’m all about the cook once, dine twice(..or three times) strategy!
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked. Remove from oven and let set for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
If some of the ingredients I used don’t fit your family’s preferences, feel free to adjust! It’s a great way to sneak in some extra “green stuff” that they typically wouldn’t be excited about eating. Works for my family! 🙂
Have a GREAT week!!
