Fixing Frittatas w/ Real Girl Haylie Duff
Ok, so I wasn’t actually in the kitchen with Haylie Duff as I whipped up the scrumptious frittata pictured above, but she was here in spirit.
I interviewed the actress turned food blogger this week for SheKnows.com about her brand new cookbook, The Real Girl’s Kitchen, and her upcoming web series of the same name.
Haylie, big sis of former Disney star Hilary Duff, has been blogging about her adventures in the kitchen for a couple of years now and has amazing recipes on her site. I mean, they must be pretty good if all her famous friends are giving up their fancy-pants LA hotspots and flocking to her kitchen.
After chatting with Haylie, I was dying to try one of her creations. They’re all no-fuss recipes (just like I like), for real women. Not the BS you see on blogs like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop. Doesn’t that name alone just make you lose your appetite?
With a fridge full of food that only had a few days till expiration, I took at stab at Haylie’s RGK “Left-Overs” Frittata. All you need is 2-3 eggs and whatever frittata fixings you have on hand.
Haylie told me her best tip to save money on healthy cooking is making use of left-overs. So I took her advice and packed my frittata with every tasty item I could find: lean ground turkey, kale, tomatoes, and zucchini squash.
The directions couldn’t be any easier, so instead of my usual format, I’ll just give you a one-liner instruction. Combine 2-3 eggs and whatever you want in a bowl, pour in a baking dish coated with cooking spray, and bake for 20-30 minutes on 350. Once the top is firm and bouncy to the touch, you’re good!
My whole freaking frittata weighed in at only 310 calories for 3 eggs and all the fixings.
If you wanted to portion it out though (and eat it like a lady), you could eek out four servings for a mere 78 calories each.
But who wants to do that?
When I make it again, I’ll probably toss in some garlic and spices. If you’re making this for brunch for a group, you can double or triple the recipe, just cook for 40-50 minutes. And add cheese, brunchers love cheese.
You can also make it with egg whites if you’re looking to go super lean.
