Lunchbox frittatas – Slimming World

These little frittatas can be eaten hot or cold.  They can be stored in an airtight box in the fridge for up to two days.  I used silicon muffin cases sprayed with a little Frylight to stop them sticking.  They are also…..syn free!  I had mine with baked beans and fresh tomato.  The rest are going in the fridge for when I get peckish later!

Delicious hot or cold.

Ingredients: Frylight, 160g spinach, 6 eggs, 12 tbsp of low fat cottage cheese, 4 chpped spring onions, dill, nutmeg, salt, pepper


If you don’t have silicon cases use greaseproof paper in a muffin tray.
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Spray a little Frylight into each muffin case.

    Do this over the sink.
  2. Put the spinach in a colander and pour over a kettle full of boiling water.  Leave it to drain.  After cooling squeeze out as much water as you can and chop the spinach.
  3. In a bowl beat the eggs.  Add salt, pepper, dill, nutmeg, spring onions, cottage cheese and spinach to the eggs.  Mix well.Jpeg
  4. Pour the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 18-20 minutes or until set.
