Linda Wagner's delicious and easy Healthy Holiday Frittata! {Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Carb, Paleo}

It’s been unseasonably cold in Austin so I spent the majority of the weekend inside watching Christmas movies and making yummy recipes! I made this mulled wine (subbed my favorite honey instead of sugar) and watched my favorite Christmas movie, Elf! That definitely got me into the holiday spirit and so decided to make a festive Holiday Frittata, also known as a “Holittata” for breakfast Sunday morning.

You guys know I love eggs, especially frittatas because they are just so easy! Plus they keep really well as leftovers…a great dinner idea for all you busy mom’s out there!

Healthy Holiday Star Frittata

You’ll need:

  •  10 eggs (I always use organic, free range when possible)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus cut into small 1/2 inch sections (you’ll use this portion for the inside of the frittata)
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus cut 2-3 inches from the tops (you’ll use this for the top decoration)
  • 2 green onions diced fine
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • several handfuls baby spinach
  • sea salt & coarse fresh cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup of water

In a large skillet over med-high heat add water (I use water instead of oil, it doesn’t effect the taste and helps reduce unnecessary fat content), garlic, 1/2 of your sliced grape tomatoes, 1/2 slices of asparagus and salt & pepper to taste. Saute for about 5 mins until veggies are starting to get slightly soft.

Next, stir in greens until wilted. Then pour in whisked eggs evenly over the vegetable mixture. Stir in the eggs and cook for a few minutes until the eggs start to set.

At this time, preheat your oven and set to “Broil” at 400 degrees.

Reduce stovetop heat to medium-low and cook until the frittata is almost set but the top is still runny, about 2 minutes.

Once the eggs have start to set, you can begin your decorations! Cut your asparagus tops (see the pic below) to the desired size. You’ll need to hold your asparagus over the top of your skillet and eyeball the size to cut them. Once you’ve found the length that works, use that piece as a measure to cut the rest of your asparagus.

Layer your asparagus and halved cherry tomatoes until your design is as you wish. I also think a holiday wreath design would be lovely and if you’re really creative, you could use the asparagus to make a Christmas tree! Share your designs with me on instagram with the hashtags #holittata and #lindawagner so I can see what you come up with!

Once your design is complete, sprinkle with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Put the skillet in the oven under the broiler until the top is set and golden brown on top, about 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the frittata stand 2 minutes.

Using a rubber spatula, cut into slices or you can loosen the frittata from the skillet and slide the whole frittata onto a plate to serve.

I served mine with sliced avocado and pumpkin spice latte with homemade almond milk! Super delicious! It would also work perfectly as a dinner meal for those of you who are following The Green Smoothie Detox!

  1. Breakfast Frittata | Food & Art - January 29, 2014

    […] Switching gears here, I made a breakfast frittata the other day that got a few likes on Instagram (follow me on Instagram! Username: fryahya) so I decided to post the recipe here. This took me 20-25 minutes to make and I could throw any leftover veggies I have from other recipes in it. Very low-carb and the leftovers were great too! For this recipe you need a skillet that’s also oven proof. Make sure it’s cast iron or entirely metal. This recipe has been adapted from Linda Wagner. […]
