Egg-White Mushroom Friatta



You could call this an egg-white omelet.  You could also call it friatta.  How about an egg-white pizza?  How’s that for low-carb?  Ideally you want to cook a friatta in an oven proof skillet so you can place it under the broiler.  However, if you cook it until almost set, you can easily slide it onto a baking sheet to finish browning. 

Egg-White Mushroom Friatta

3 egg whites, beaten

2 tablespoons milk or cream

1/2 cup Colby-jack cheese, shredded

1/4 cup parmesan cheese, shredded

1/2 cup canned mushrooms, drained

1 tablespoon canola oil

1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 teaspoon olive oil

Turn oven on Broil.  Sauté mushrooms in canola oil until slightly browned.  Drain well on paper towels. Pre-heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in oven proof skillet over medium-high heat.   Stir together egg whites, cream, Colby-jack cheese, mushrooms and seasoning.  Pour into skillet.  Cook until just barely set.  Sprinkle top with parmesan cheese.  Place pan under broiler for about five minutes or until top is browned.
