I had the day off and the house to myself and was feeling quite lackadaisical after a day of domestication, taking some photos for “Phriday’s Fotography Blog” and visiting with the neighbors so I wanted to make something easy and quick. I was able to delve into this meal for one, potentially two that can be changed up in so many ways. Don’t like mushrooms? Switch it up for sautéed onions, green pepper, broccoli or zucchini. Add a small amount of your favorites. Carnivore only? Try Genoa salami, pepperoni, or some grilled shrimp? The possibilities are endless. For this one I wanted to keep it pretty simple so that I would have enough time to share this with all of you to try tomorrow? If you are feeding two people then simply add a slice of toast of your liking to soak up and wipe your plate clean of all of those natural juices left lingering on your plate… mouth watering isn’t it?
Veggie and Cheese Frittata
2 tbsp butter (or olive oil)
2 large mushrooms sliced
¼ cup milk
2 cloves of roasted garlic, mashed (or you can chop one fresh clove)
3 – 1 oz of various cheeses or 3 oz cheddar grated (Tonight I used havarti, smoked Gouda and white cheddar but you can use any combination you like…or no combination at all…golden cheddar is always delicious too)
1 handful of fresh spinach
Salt and pepper to taste
How to Make:
Heat the butter or olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the sliced mushrooms cooking until slightly golden brown.
Beat eggs, milk, mashed garlic, salt and pepper together with a whisk in a small bowl. Add the spinach to the sautéed mushrooms and pour the egg mixture in the skillet over the vegetables. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the egg mixture.
Place the cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the egg is lightly browned on the bottom, about 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip the frittata and cook until the bottom is again lightly browned about 1 to 3 minutes more.
Season with a pinch more of sea salt and fresh ground pepper and divulge your breakfast craving for dinner…Bon Appétit.
