    This makes a really hearty breakfast. I made a single serving and couldn't finish all of it! Made the salsa the night before so it had lots of time to meld. The egg mix was easy for me as I always have keep small cartons of egg white in the freezer. The taste was very good and I just love the low calorie and high health factors. :D

    This was relatively quick and easy to make. I did scale it back to one (generous) serving. I did not care for the salsa on its own because it was too vinegary, but it did go good with the frittata.
