  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    Easy and very tasty!

    I swapped out a few ingredients based on what I had:

    –added 8 slices chopped, cooked turkey bacon
    –used 8 sliced sauteed mushrooms in place of the onions
    –4 eggs (rather than 3)
    –feta: reduced fat tomato and basil flavor
    –one 6oz package of baby spinach

    Wonderful Christmas morning meal with toast and fruit!

      It’s in the spices aisle… by seasoned salts and things like that.

    Use this recipe as a guide, but the ending results are marvelous!!! I used 4 eggs, sautéed red, yellow and orange peppers, minced garlic, onions and spinach. Used pink sea salt, pepper and 1/2tbsp soy sauce and 5oz of freshly shaved parmesan, romano & asiago cheese.
