To Make a Frittata

 

     Hey there! I love frittata's for a few reasons. A) They are a great way to balance your meal with one dish. You can throw veggies, protein, dairy, or anything you want in a frittata! B) They are super simple to make. You just beat eggs and pour them over your toppings. C) One to myself will last me for a week. I love being able to have a piece for breakfast every morning! There are probably even more reasons to love them that I'm just not thinking of, but I'm hooked anyways. It's also a bonus that Bailey loves them too. She gets a whole piece to herself! She's always been an egg baby. I like to top mine with some Sriracha for extra flavor, but it's great on its own too! Get the recipe below (adapted from this one)!

Ingredients: yields 8 slices

- 5 eggs

- a cup of spinach

- cherry tomatoes sliced in half

- half a cup of the cheese of your choice (I used a mozzarella parmesan blend)

Side note: You will need an oven proof skillet for this recipe. I love my cast iron, and you can get some good deals on Amazon!

Instructions:

Step one - Preheat your oven to 375. Oil up your skillet to prevent sticking, and start to cook your veggies on the stove over medium high heat for about 5 minutes.

Step two - While the veggies soften, beat together your eggs until combined and add your cheese. Try not to over beat! Once the veggies are cooked, pour your eggs over the veggies and situate your veggies in the eggs using a spatula. Cook the eggs on the stove for about 40 seconds and then place (carefully!) in the oven.

Step three - Cook in the oven for about 12 minutes, but be sure to keep an eye on it so that it won't burn. Remove from the oven, and be aware that your skillet handle will be hot, so use oven mitts! Place frittata on a cutting board and slice how you like. Enjoy!
