Instructions Checklist

  • While cauliflower is cooking, mix egg whites, whole eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together using an electric hand mixer in a bowl until fluffy, about 3 minutes.

  • Stir kale, thyme, and garlic powder into the skillet mixture to combine. Cook until kale has wilted, 3 to 4 minutes; transfer vegetable mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine.

  • Spray the hot skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in egg-vegetable mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and cook until edges are set, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler to high.

  • Uncover the skillet and broil in the preheated oven until the top of the frittata is set and cooked, about 8 minutes.

Disclaimer: I made 2 substitutions - 1) used baby spinach because I had it and it was mid morning on a Sunday and I hadn t eaten and didn t want to run out 2) Eggbeaters instead of the 2 whole eggs because of my high cholesterol. It is delicious! I used to make a pie with spinach and cheese and bisquick that was great but lots of carbs. This took the carbs out but the cauliflower gave it body and substance. It is a great base recipe to experiment with - add extra veggies add cheese etc. Will make again very soon! Read More

I didn t make any changes. I would have preferred more yolk and less egg white but made as the recipe called for it was delicious. Would make again. Read More
