Weekend Frittata!

  
After a busy workweek, I love throwing together a quick Frittata. Super versatile and easy, it’s a great way to use up some of the fresh veggies left over from the week. (I hate to waste food, so I’m always looking for ways to incorporate leftovers into new recipes!)

There are a few staples I keep on hand so I’m always prepared .

Eggs
Feta Cheese (the savory salty flavor makes it unnecessary to season with additional salt)
Shredded Cheese (From simple Cheddar to Italian 4-Cheese to Mexican Blends…any flavors will be delicious!)
Sun-Dried Tomatoes (this is optional)
Sour Cream for Garnishing (you may also like to keep parsley, hot sauce or salsa on hand as well)
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
An Oven-Safe Non-Stick Skillet or Lasagna or Cake-Style Baking Pan

When it comes to additional ingredients, the sky is the limit! This morning I had some lovely fresh baby spinach left over from earlier in the week. So I kept things simple…eggs, baby spinach, sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, topped with a 4-cheese Italian blend of shredded cheese. it was delish! (photo above)

Here’s a list of some other ingredients I’ve used:
Green Pepper
Broccoli
Mushrooms
Spring Onions
Salsa!
Snow Peas
Parsley
Shredded Potatoes (frozen hashbrown potatoes to make it extra hearty)
…you get the idea!
And if you want to add meat, use pre-cooked options:
Bacon
Sausage
Deli Meat cut into pieces

Once you have assembled all your ingredients preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk your eggs (2 or 3 for each person…or more so you have leftovers for a quick reheatable breakfast throughout the week. For a standard 13×9 baking pan you’ll need about 18 eggs.) Add your additional ingredients whisking as you go. be sure to add some cheese to your egg mixture as well…feta or your own favorite! (note: take cate that your extra ingredients do not overpower your egg mixture. But if you find that your eggs look a bit thin after adding everything, just add a few more eggs! Try to keep the ratio at about 2 (eggs) to 1 (everthing else!)) Top with a layer of shredded cheese and bake for about 30 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Serve immeduately with your garnish of choice! Yum!
