More frittata recipes I love are Light Swiss Chard FrittataSpinach and Feta Frittata and Mushroom Shallot Frittata.

Frittatas are very versatile, they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner if paired with a salad. Cut into small squares, they can be served as an appetizer as well.

This starts on the stove and finishes in the oven. I like to use half eggs, half egg whites to lighten my frittatas yet maintain the taste and texture I prefer and keep the vitamins, iron and nutrients, but if you wish to use all egg whites, that would certainly work.
