Light Spinach Frittata With Salsa




1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 sm. onion, sliced (I diced mine)
2 to 4 cloves garlic
1 (10) pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and well-drained
2 lg. eggs
3 egg whites
1/3 cup fat-free evaporated milk (sold in a can)
1/2 cup shredded light cheese (I used light Jarlsberg, can use any reduced-fat cheese)
salsa (for serving)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over med heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach. Reduce heat to low. Beat eggs and milk until frothy, and pour egg mixture over spinach in skillet. Cook for 5-7 minutes, till egg mixture is cooked on bottom and eggs on top are almost set. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in oven till eggs are set and cheese has melted, 5-10 minutes. Serve with salsa of your choice.

Made this for breakfast on my first day of the South Beach diet and it was SO filling and wonderful. The eggs are very creamy and flavorful when cooked in this way. This is a phase one South Beach Diet recipe, but you would never guess it! You can also make your own salsa.
