Scrambled Egg Burritos

Ingredients

• 2 large organic eggs, or equivalent egg substitute

• 1 tbsp low-fat milk

• 1 tsp chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

• 1/8 tsp kosher salt

• Dash of coarsely ground black pepper

• Cooking spray

• 1/2 tsp butter

• 4 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese

• 2 (8-inch) flour or corn tortillas, heated

• 4 tbsp chopped seeded tomato, divided

• 2 tbsp bottled chunky salsa, divided

1. Whisk the first five ingredients in a medium bowl.

2. Coat a medium non-stick skillet with cooking spray and melt butter over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and stir with a heat-proof rubber spatula to scramble.

3. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese down the center of one tortilla and top with half of the scrambled egg, 2 tablespoons of tomato, and 1 tablespoon of chunky salsa.

4. Roll up burrito-style. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

 

Frittata

Ingredients

• 1 tbsp olive oil

• 1 cup minced onion

• 4 large eggs

• 2 egg whites

• 1/4 tsp pepper

• 3 oz sun­dried tomatoes, packed without oil

• 1/4 cup (2 oz) goat cheese

• 1/4 cup basil chiffonade

1. Sauté vegetables. Set the oven to broil. Use a well­-seasoned, 10-­inch iron skillet. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the skillet over medium-­high heat, and add 1 cup of minced onion. Cook until the onion is translucent—about 3 minutes.

2. Add the egg mixture to pan. Whisk together four large eggs and two egg whites, and season with 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the onions, patting down any lumps with a wooden spoon. Scatter 3 ounces of sun­dried tomatoes evenly over the pan surface.

3. Add cheese and put in broiler. Distribute 1/4 cup (2 ounces) of goat cheese over the top of the frittata, then place the skillet under the broiler for 2 minutes until the frittata rises slightly. Remove from broiler and top with 1/4 cup basil chiffonade. (Stack basil, then roll the stack, and slice it into feathery, 1/4­ inch pieces.)
