Two awesome breakfast fritattas!

We have two wonderful recipes to share with you! Doug and Lindsay have been making some great breakfast fritattas on Sunday to quickly heat-n-eat all week long. These breakfast meals are a great balance of carbs, proteins and fats to get your metabolism running, give you great fuel before or after a workout and to keep you full till your mid-morning meal. Both recipes are super simple to make by baking in the oven. Doug’s version is a bit larger portion good for guys (it can be cut down for smaller portion though) and Lindsay’s version is a bit smaller in calories and fat (but can also be increased for guys or you can add meat to this dish to bump the calories and fats).

Lindsay’s Fritatta:

Ingredients:

  • 5 whole large eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups egg whites
  • 3 cups shredded sweet potato
  • 4 cups chopped asparagus, mushrooms, red onion

Directions for Lindsay’s fritatta is exactly the same as Doug’s, but Lindsay’s is made in a 9×13 baking dish and cooks for a little less time. Also, in Lindsay’s dish, the veggies need to be cooked in a pan first, the asparagus tends to not cook all the way through and is tough if you skip this step.
