All my favorite baked potato fixings in this quick and easy baked potato and cheese frittata, now with half the calories!Potato, cheese and eggs may not seem like a light meal for some of your, but with few substitutions you can enjoy it without feeling guilty!
If I had to pick one savory meal to eat every single day it would be a tie between cheesy potato and cheesy pasta. They are both comfort food to me. Of course, the more cheese I add, the better it tastes but in the same time the calorie count gets up to the sky and I have to leave some room for dessert! Life is sweeter this way.
It took me a while to come up with a lightened up potato and cheese frittata and I have to tell you, this version is amazing! Potato, check! Cheese, check! Ham or bacon, check! I told you! It has everything you want in a loaded baked potato! There are two secrets to get a light frittata. The first one is using a flavorful cheese. The more flavor the cheese has, the less you use, cutting down on the calories. Using a reduced fat cheese like Dubliner from Kerrygold is even better! Double win!
The second secret is substituting some of the whole eggs with just egg whites.
I like my potato with diced lean ham. You can use bacon instead but keep in mind, most likely bacon has 3-4 times more calories that ham, especially fat!
If you prefer you could top your frittata with sour cream, but I did not miss it on mine. The roasted tomatoes bring plenty of flavor, plus a caramelized onion and finely chopped garlic are added to the frittata as well.
I told you this potato and cheese frittata is loaded but has only half the calories as a regular one!
