Mushroom and Spinach Frittata With Smoked Gouda

As promised, here is another favorite recipe for our HEALTHY 2015 series.  I've made this twice!  It's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It reheats well too.  I got 5 thumbs up from my family (my youngest doesn't like mushrooms).  Not only is it a great recipe BUT a serving size is 1/4 of the recipe and it's only 158 calories.  I found this recipe on  They have partnered with so that you can download the nutritional content of their recipes.  It makes healthy eating much easier for people that love to cook!  Bon Appetite!
