Mushroom-Shallot Frittata

A gourmet breakfast that is low in points and is easy to make. I almost missed my train this morning making this delicious frittata but it would have been worth it (don’t tell my boss). The smell of the mushrooms and shallots coming out of my bag filled my train, oops if I made anyone hungry. I love making frittatas for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Cut into small squares, they can be served as an appetizer as well.
