Norma's Light Spinach Swiss Frittata

Norma DeRemer


As some of you know by now I had my gullbladder removed a few weeks ago and am making myself some healthier dishes with the hope of loosing some weight. Tried this recipe a few days ago and asked my neighbor to join us. Well, this one is a keeper for sure. At first bite we all loved the taste and she asked me for the recipe. This is a perfect meatless dinner when paired with a salad and some whole-wheat bread.This would also make a great breakfast or brunch dish.

Once the bottom and edges set, place the skillet in the oven and bake until completely set through, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and place a dish over the pan and being careful, flip onto the plate.
Cut into wedges and serve with a side salad, low carb. bread.
