Basic Baked Shrimp Frittata
I thought I'd post this up. This egg dish has been the mainstay for my breakfasts. It's easy to modify with different meats and such. You can also cut it into smaller pieces for 'finger food' snacks or a meal on the go.
12 eggs (preferably free range)
2 cups egg whites
10 oz pack of frozen spinach -thawed and squeeze of excess water
500 grams frozen shrimp - thawed and tails removed
oil for pan
1- Preheat over to 350F
2 - Grease a 9"x13" baking dish (pyrex, ceramic, metal) with melted ghee or macadamian oil or coconut oil.
3 - Spread spinach and shrimp onto dish so it's fairly evenly distributed
4- Beat eggs and egg whites. Pour over shrimp and spinach
5- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden and the middle is cooked through.
The macronutrients for the whole dish are (approximately)
78 grams fat
25.8 grams carbs
275 grams protein
if you cut it into 6 equal pieces that works out to per serving:
13 grams fat
4.3 grams carb
46 grams protein
If you cut it into 8 equal pieces that works out to per serving:
10 grams fat
3.2 grams carbs
34 grams protein
If you cut it into 10 equal pieces that works out ro per serving:
8 grams fat
2.5 grams carbs
27.5 grams protein
Of course, you can add different meats and other veggies. I often add leftover roasted veggies instead of the spinach. If I have leftover ground meat I add that. Sometimes I toss in a diced tomato. You could also add a spoonful of tapenade or pesto. I've also tried it with steak and taco seasoning (1 tsp) and that was good.

I just saw this, @arctichacker But, where are the lentils/beans? How much could I put in there and what would be the nutrient info change because of it. I still want to include lentils in my breakfasts. How much do you suggest I add for the whole recipe. I usually eat about 1/2 cup lentils for my breakfast.
I'd probably take the 8 equal pieces option since that would work best with my cheat days as I could make it twice during the week to cover breakfasts for both my hubby and I. I'd just love the changed macronutrient info for my data farming self.
Usually, I'd get 1/2 cup of lentils and 1/4 cup of black beans from M-Thu and Friday it is 3/4 cup of lentils. Could you help me? My breakfasts need a change.
