Swiss Chard Frittata

3 large eggs
3 large egg whites (or use 3/4 cup Egg Beaters)
1/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/8 tsp black pepper
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 to 3 leaves Swiss Chard (4 oz. Remove stalks, cut into 1/2" pieces. Cut leafy parts crosswise into strips and then chopped coarsely, about 1 1/2 cups)
Low-fat shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Salsa, for serving

Preheat oven to 375 F. Whisk together eggs, egg whites, ricotta, 1/4 tsp of the salt and pepper in medium bowl. If ricotta is thick, feel free to use a blender to make the egg mixture smooth.

Heat oil in 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Add Swiss chard stalks and onion and saute until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Add chard leaves and cook, stirring until tender, about 2 minutes. Add remaining salt. Add egg mixture and stir once or twice to distribute veggies evenly. Place skillet in oven and bake until eggs have set, about 12 - 14 minutes. Remove from oven, top with cheese, slice into wedges and serve with salsa.

6 servings.

-----------------
Use this recipe as a base for variations! Good with spinach too. Cottage cheese is a good sub for ricotta, but you'll need to blend it for sure. I adapt this recipe every time I make it. :-) I usually sprinkle with herbs...or I add some type of seasoning blend. Bacon bits are good!

I like chard, but don't love it. Sometimes it tastes metallic to me...is that the oxalic acid in it?

Enjoy,

You're making me hungry, patti. I have a bunch of chard in my garden that needs eating... but I have no ricotta!!

I don't remember eating chard growing up, so I was surprised in later years when my dad grew some and rather lovingly cooked it up for us like spinach. I remember it being very sweet and tasty. The chard I've grown has been good, but not as good as Dad's.... don't know why.

This is an old post but just in case this happens to anyone else; seeing as it's cold crop season! I follow a lot of cooking blogs, baking and cooking are my main passions in life, and this blog shows how to make ricotta cheese so here you go http://www.lesliesarna.com/2010/03/homemade-ricotta-cheese.html

Now all you have to do is keep whole milk on hand ;o)
