abccfrittata3

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup grated Swiss Cheese
  • 1/2 bunch (6 1/2 cups) Swish Chard, washed well
  • 1 large white onion (2 cups), sliced thin
  • 2 tsp light butter
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, egg whites, cheese, and a pinch of salt & pepper. Set aside.
  3. Separate the stems from the leaves of the chard. Dice the stem into small pieces. Roll the leaves up and slice into thin ribbons, about an 1/8-inch thick.
  4. Heat a 10-inch skillet on low heat; melt half of the butter and add the onions with a pinch of salt & pepper. Slowly cook until the onions caramelize. Set the onions aside
  5. Increase the heat to medium-high, add remaining butter and add the chard stems. Cook about 3-4 minutes. Add the chard leaves to the pan and cook until wilted (about 2-3 minutes). Season with salt & pepper.
  6. Reduce heat to low; pour egg mixture into the skillet and add caramelized onions, salt & pepper and mix well to blend. Reduce heat to low and cook until the edges set (about 6-8 minutes). Once the bottom and edges set, place in the oven and bake until completely set through (about 4-5 minutes).
  7. Remove from the oven and place a dish over the pan; flip onto the plate.
  8. Cut into wedges, serve, and enjoy!

I started at IBC in July as a registered dietitian at the Champaign location and I’m excited to have the blog up and running! I’ve had many patients tell me how much they used to enjoy having the monthly newsletter with recipes, weight loss tips, and general nutrition information. This page is taking the place of the newsletter. I hope you find it useful in your weight loss journey. Please feel free to comment and respond to posts or ask me questions on here!
