Breakfast Frittata

20Nov12

Frittatas are like an omlette except the ingredients are all together. It’s a great dish to make for two or more people. I like to serve them when friends or family come to stay. You can basically put anything in them; leftover steak, bacon, any vegetables you have on hand, sun dried or fresh tomatoes, etc. (Whatever makes you happy!) Top with any kind of cheese and you have the makings of a great frittata. I use parmesan because it’s the lowest calorie count of the cheeses and it tastes great.

5 eggs
Salt
Pepper
1 Tbs olive oil
2 cups of veggies and/or meat
1/4-1/2 cup cheese

In a medium bowl, scramble the eggs. Add salt and pepper to season. Set aside.

In a medium non-stick pan or iron skillet, turn stove to medium-high heat. Add olive oil. Saute your mix of veggies and/or meat until mostly cooked. Distriute the mixture out across the entire pan. Pour the egg mixture on top. Top with cheese. Turn heat down to medium-low heat. Cook for 20 minutes or until the egg does not appear runny.

If you like the top of your frittata crunchy, put in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Just make sure you have an oven-safe pan.
