Last night I made a delicious frittata for dinner. I like to cook a couple of vegetarian meals each week and frittatas are one of my favorite dishes. It is a great way to use up leftovers, they are quick and easy, and they make a tasty and light dinner. Here’s how you do it.
Eggs (6 or 8 will work for a family of 4)
Cooked veggies (I used potatoes, green and red peppers, and onion)
Shredded cheese (1/2 a cup or so. I used Colby)
Salt and Pepper
First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Next, beat the eggs together in a medium bowl and mix in veggies and cheese and a little salt and pepper. When I use potatoes I don’t mix them in with the eggs.
Heat the oil in an oven proof skillet over medium heat on the stove. If using potatoes, I layer the sliced potatoes in the bottom of the pan and let cook for a minute or two. Then pour in the egg mixture. Do not stir or touch it. Cook for about 8 minutes untill the edges are firm.
Then move the whole skillet to the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Untill eggs are cooked all the way through.
I like to serve it with toast and fruit.
There’s nothing like breakfast for dinner 🙂
