Are egg whites healthy?
Egg whites are very healthy for us. They are filled with high-quality protein as well as potassium and important B vitamins. For this recipe, I’m using Bob Evans® Egg Whites. I love how these cartons have just one ingredient—100% liquid egg whites—with no fillers or added sodium! I picked this product up at my local Walmart next to the fresh eggs section.

Egg whites are a convenient way to get protein in your day. Protein is important to keep our muscles strong and it helps keep us fuller longer. Just one serving of Bob Evans Egg Whites packs an impressive 5 grams of protein. As a bonus, since egg whites contain no cholesterol or saturated fat, it’s considered a heart-healthy food.

What is a frittata and how do I make it?
A frittata is simply a crustless quiche. This egg white version is so easy to make.
First, sauté your vegetables. This recipe calls for 3 cups of vegetables of your choice. This means you can customize it to fit what you like or already have on hand. That wrinkly pepper, misshapen squash, end of an onion, and tiny broccoli bits are all welcome in this recipe. Plus, using up ingredients already found in your kitchen helps to decrease both food waste and grocery store trips.
Next, add egg whites and cheese. By using Bob Evans Egg Whites, you can skip the extra dishes and mess of cracking eggs. If you want to make the recipe dairy-free, you can omit the cheese or use a dairy-free alternative.
Finally, bake it and garnish with herbs. Bake the frittata for 25 to 30 minutes at 350ºF. It’s fully cooked when the center is no longer jiggly and the edges are golden brown. After baking, I love to sprinkle on green onions or any fresh herbs to make the flavor pop. You can also season with more salt and pepper to taste.
