Apple-and-Fetta Frittata

Today I taught my last class for this session's bible study. It was such a spirit filled class! There is nothing better than better than sharing with women you love while eating amazing food! Talking about our amazing love for god, we passed one of my new favorite breakfast dishes. Combining my love for frittata's and apples.. this one just made sense. And let me tell you it was yummy!!! If you are not a feta fan, you can try cheddar or any other coarse cheese you like!! Bake it and ask friends to come over while you share champagne and fellowship!

8 egg beaters plus 2 large egg whites
4 ounces fat-free feta cheese crumbled (1 cup)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 Gala apples, peeled, cored, and sliced lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick pieces

1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack set in top third. Place apple slices on a cookie sheet and bake for 10mins or until slightly browned. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
2.In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, and half the cheese; season with salt and pepper. In a medium cast-iron or nonstick ovenproof skillet (I used my dutch oven pan), heat to medium. Add egg mixture; while it cooks, 1 to 2 minutes until edge is set, arrange apples on top in a circular pattern, starting from the outside edge, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
3.Transfer skillet to oven. Bake until frittata is set in the center and cheese is browned, about 20 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, release frittata onto a cutting board; let rest 5 minutes. Cut into wedges, and serve
