FRITTATA

12 eggs
1/2 C whole milk
3 C add-ins
    add any veggies, deli meats or leftovers you like.
1 C grated pepper jack, jarlsberg, gruyere or cheese of your choice. Crumbled feta or other goat cheese would also be very nice.
salt, cayenne and / or black pepper to taste
 

A frittata is basically an omelet. You beat the eggs until blended, mix the rest of the ingredients in and pour the whole concoction into an oiled cast iron skillet. You can use broccoli, cauliflower, peas, corn, bell peppers, tomatoes and so on. I tend to use some frozen veggies like peas and corn which I defrost in the microwave for a minute. I am fine with previously uncooked fresh broccoli, cauliflower and bell peppers cut into small pieces.

You can add any cured deli meats and / or pre-cooked sausages cut into small pieces into the mix.

The best thing is you clean up your fridge and fold your leftovers into this frittata. I mean left over roast chicken, steak, pork chop etc. Dice it and throw it in.

Cover your pan and put it on the stove top, or stick it into a pre-heated 325 degree F oven. Cook, or bake until the eggs firm up. Stick under the broiler for 3-4 minutes to brown the top.

C = cup
