The other morning I tried my hand at making a frittata. What is a frittata you might ask? How is it different from a quiche? That was the question the boyfriend asked, so I had to answer.
A frittata is an egg dish made with fresh veggies, the vegetables are generally cooked prior to putting in the oven with the eggs, and baked until the eggs are done. A quiche is also an egg dish, commonly made with cream or milk to form a custard.
My frittata consisted of cooking zucchini with some Tony C’s and celery salt, some scallions, and adding some minced garlic at the last minute, just to make it sweet. You don’t want to over cook or burn garlic!
I used four whole large eggs and four egg yolks, whisked until all parts blended, and poured over the vegetable mixture into a greased pie plate. Then the frittata was placed in the oven at 450 for a little over 15 minutes. At 450 degrees the eggs cooked very quickly and turned out very fluffy. The frittata was a hit, I’ve made a similar combination with leftover vegetables in my refrigerator for the last several days. Waste not want not!
Lately I have been looking for more Whole 30 compliant, easy breakfast ideas. The boyfriend and I are planning on doing the challenge together, so easy meals are going to be the way to go. We both have very little time to prepare meals and our food needs to be kid friendly.
