Frittata is another economical and delicious dish. It can be made ahead of time and is great for re-heats in the microwave. Last night I made our frittata with fresh broccoli, fresh spinach, onions and feta cheese - but again, it can be adjusted to accommodate just about anything you may have on hand.
Here's the basic recipe:
4 c. chopped vegetables, (in the above photo I used broccoli, spinach and onions)
1 c. chopped ham, bacon, or chicken (optional - in the above photo I omitted meat)
1-2 c. shredded cheese(s) (optional - in the above photo I used feta)
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. milk
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9.5x11 casserole dish, set aside. In a large bowl combine the vegetables, meat and cheese(s). Evenly spread vegetable mixture into greased casserole. In a medium bowl whisk eggs until lemon color. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Add milk and stir until well combined. Evenly pour egg mixture over vegetable mixture. Bake 40-50 minutes or until eggs are set and top begins to brown. Allow to set 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving.
makes 8-10 servings
note: if using canned vegetables, drain well; if you omit meat or cheese(s) you may want to increase the vegetable content.
