Ah, Breakfast for Dinner

And it was good for me too!

Tonight, after getting the apartment in order for my mom's visit that starts tomorrow, I cleaned out the fridge of odds and ends. Somehow, without even planning I ended up with a low fat, low carb, high fiber, turkey Italian sausage fritatta wrap for dinner.

Low fat and carb frittata

It was delicious. How did I do that?!

Breakfast for Dinner Frittata

1/2 cup Eggbeaters or egg substitute
1 link turkey Italian sausage
1/3 cup shredded low fat cheese
1 low carb, high fiber whole wheat sandwich wrap
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
dash salt
dash pepper

Remove the sausage from the casing, break up in large chunks and cook in an eight inch non stick skillet. Remove from pan, and drain on paper towel. Wipe out pan of any residue grease, pour in egg substitute and add back in cooked sausage on medium low heat. Sprinkle spices on top and cook, lifting cooking fritatta to let liquid under until very firm. Flip over and sprinkle cheese on top and cook until cheese is melting.

Place fritatta on top of sandwich wrap, roll up and slice in half. Serve with granny smith apple slices and seltzer water.
