Leafy Greens and Goat Cheese Frittata

January is the month where we all start thinking about adding some nutrient-rich meals to our weekly menus (and if they are quick meals that's always a bonus!). This frittata is chock-full of greens, meaning it's high in fiber and will keep you happy and satisfied until your next meal. I suggest pairing it with citrus fruit since that is perfect right now (this grapefruit I had was SO sweet and delicious). I will be sure to keep these healthy recipes coming!


1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Heat a 10-inch oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, onion and pancetta and cook until the pancetta is crisp, about 4 minutes. Add the greens and cook until wilted. Reduce heat to medium.




3. Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes together in a mixing bowl. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook until the edges pull away form the pan, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the frittata with goat cheese.




4. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 18 minutes, or until set.

5. Cut the frittata into wedges. Serve with fresh fruit.
