  • 6 large eggs and 4 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. dried dill
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup diced low-fat and low sodium ham
  • ½ cup shredded Havarti or Muenster cheese

Green Eggs and Ham Frittata

1. Position the rack in the upper third of your oven; preheat to 450°F.
2. Whisk eggs, egg whites, dill, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leeks, stirring occasionally until softened, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and ham, cook until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.
3. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata so uncooked egg can flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top, transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the eggs are set, 6 to 8 minutes. Let rest for about 3 minutes before serving. Serve hot and enjoy!
