 Spinach and onions

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 egg, 3 egg whites, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

Beaten eggs, egg white, and Parmesan cheese

Pour over spinach in skillet and tilt skillet to spread evenly.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Frittata on the stove

Cover and cook until the egg mixture begins to curl away from the sides; the center will probably still be moist.
Take skillet off stove and put in oven under broiler.  Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and the eggs are set.
 Flip frittata onto your plate and sprinkle on remaining Parmesan cheese. This dish serves one, but splits easy to share.
