Green Mountain Country Style Frittata

This healthy frittata recipe makes an easy and appealing lunch or brunch dish. Start with eggs and cheese, then add vegetables and herbs from the late summer’s garden for an endless number of combinations. Green Mountain says “Garnish this frittata with Chunky Tomato Salsa and serve with a mixed green salad or Waldorf Salad and a whole grain roll for lunch, or pair it with a fresh fruit cup and an Oat muffin for a Sunday brunch.”    Courtesy of Green Mountain at Fox Run — a for-women-only health retreat in the green mountains of Vermont.   Be sure to visit the site to print recipes of the month.

    This is good, particularly with chopped 99% fat free ham or turkey added, for even more protein. Found it doesn’t need that much parmesan, either, which decreased fat calories.
