The journey to living by design.

The best egg dish you haven’t tried yet

20140209_103135

One word: frittata. OK, two more words: easy and delicious. I’m going to give you my basic recipe with some variation options.

You will need:

An oven-proof skillet

8 eggs

Olive oil

Garlic

Salt and pepper

Some kind of greens – arugula or spinach.

Some vegetables – mushrooms, peppers (hot or sweet), onions, tomato, zucchini, broccoli, chives, pre-cooked sweet potato or potato.

Meat, meat, meat – leftover chicken, pork or beef in pretty much any form, flaked tuna, salmon or crab, bacon, prosciutto (fancy bacon), sausage, more bacon…

Some kind of cheese – feta, chevre, cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan.

Mix and match these ingredients to your heart’s content.

  1. Preheat your broiler.
  2. Heat the oil in the pan to medium high.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl until well-blended.
  4. Stir-fry veggies for about a minute, until tender-crisp.
  5. Add greens and wilt for about a minute.
  6. Add meat and then beaten eggs.
  7. Dot with cheese. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Cook without stirring until eggs are mostly set. There will still be a bit of jiggle in the centre.
  9. Pop the pan under the broiler. Keep a close eye on it and pull it out when the top begins to brown and the cheese is bubbling.

This makes four servings. Serve it with salad or soup. Enjoy!
