You can make these quite easily using a muffin pan and an oven. They stay up to 3 days in the fridge and make a great snack.

1 carton egg beaters (or mix your own eggs/whites == 5 eggs worth)
1 cup of your choice : chopped spinach, coriander, pepper, onions, etc.
1/4 cup skim milk
seasoning your choice of : salt, pepper, mint chutney, balsamic vinegar etc
1/4 cup of grated cheese : parmesan or any other

mix it all up, throw it in the muffin pan (lightly sprayed) and bake at 350 for 20-22 minutes (you'll see when they're ready)

Voila!

Doh, me bad, I thought you meant instead of a conventional oven to bake them in the first place LOL.

I made em fresh yesterday, I'll let u know tonight but I'm sure they'll reheat fine :)

One carton (5 eggs) makes 6 so each one has roughly:

Protein : 5-6g
Fat : 1-2g (depends how much cheese you add and how many yolks)
Carbs: 1-3g

BTW they microwave just fine. Nuked one for 35 seconds this morning and the texture was as good as when I made them.

P.S. I forgot I also added veggie bacon chopped up in them as well Yummmm!

If I used real bacon, should I fry it up first? Or would it cook in the oven fine?

Oh and another thing, that I find cool when I make an omlette, is to not use grated cheese, but to use bigger cubes, so they basically make a melted pocket of cheese which tastes really awesome when you bite into it.

My fritatas will be like 50g protein, 20g fat! :D

In that case you better use a pie plate instead of a muffin pan :)

I do a similar thing in a frying pan...I mix egg whites and 1 or 2 yolks with a splash of fat-free half-and-half (gives it a nice fluffy texture) with some chopped green pepper and onions, some lean venison sausage, a little cheese, and hot sauce. Cooks in about 4 minutes in a cast iron pan :) Yummy stuff...

You should try adding mushrooms little lady. They are a positive contribution to any meal! :)

Fungus in ANY form is a bad thing, IMO :D
