Justin’s Frittata Ideas

When I look in my fridge and spot veggies that NEED TO GO, I almost always whip out the frying pan I use for frittatas.  The beauty of the frittata is that it’s so flexible and way easier to make than quiche.  Here are some ideas to making frittatas for your family.  You can also make more than one and then have a healthy breakfast option for the whole week!

Whisk 8 eggs, ½ cup milk, ½ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp pepper in a large bowl.

Heat a 10-to-12-inch nonstick frying pan with 2 tbsp olive oil or butter.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

At this point, you can literally throw any kind of veggie into the pan.  I like cooked Italian sausage crumbles and diced red bell peppers.  Or you could try cooked and drained spinach and some feta cheese.  You might like some leftover broccoli and some sharp cheddar.  Maybe you’re a fan of turning your frittata into a Denver omelet (ham, onion, green pepper, cheddar).  You can’t go wrong by trying some cherry tomatoes, cooked bacon, and oh no, that poor avocado is going bad!  The possibilities are endless. 

Just know that if you are using foods that won’t taste so good if not cooked first, be sure to cook them up before adding them (potatoes, carrots, zucchini, cauliflower, etc.).

Also, if you want some garlic or onions in your frittata, you should sauté it for a few minutes in the pan before adding the other ingredients.

Once you have stirred in the veggies, add the egg mixture and any chesses you are dreaming about.  DO NOT STIR!  Cook on medium heat until the edges set and you can pull the sides away from the pan with a plastic spatula, about 6 minutes. 

Put whole pan in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.  To avoid drying it out, I usually pull it out (careful – use an oven mitt!) after 15 minutes and pierce with a knife to see if there is any runny egg visible inside.  No runny egg?  You are good to go!  I then slide it out of the pan onto a cutting board and slice away!

I hope your family enjoys this recipe! If you are looking for home-planning (or cooking) advice, I would be happy to be a resource!
