Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil Frittata (Keto)

This is an easy, foolproof and super-delicious frittata that you can whip up at breakfast for house guests or tea-time pop-ins. The stars of the show are the sweet cherry tomatoes in every bite (be sure to find organic if possible). Its a fairly small end-result, so I will assume you will slice these into 4 pieces, and not 8 like pizza – and this was how the macros were calculated. Now is also a good opportunity to pass on a little ‘cheffy’ knowledge in case you didn’t already know: Neither tomatoes nor fresh basil should ever be stored in the fridge. Now you know :)

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
  2. Grease a loose-bottomed tart tin (mine was 18cm / 7-in in diameter) very well and place onto a baking tray (this ensures safe removal from the oven, but also in the event any mixture cooks over).
  3. Place the eggs and cream cheese into a bowl. Season with salt, white pepper and freshly ground black pepper. Use a whisk to combine very well until smooth and all the cream cheese has 'broken up'.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the tart tin and add in the halved cherry tomatoes. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes,
  5. In this time, drain your baby mozzarella balls (55g should be the drained weight). You can also use this time to slice the basil leaves into fine shreds.
  6. After 15 minutes, carefully remove the tray from the oven and place the mozzarella balls onto the frittata.
  7. Return the tray to the oven for 5 more minutes. Remove and top with the sliced fresh basil. Slice into 4 slices and enjoy as is, or with a lovely fresh salad on the side.
  8. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down this page (keep scrolling), as well as the link to PIN THE RECIPE (for those on Pinterest). There is also a comment facility, so do let me know how you get on...

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 1.6g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
