Fiesta Friday turned into Siesta Saturday… My honey and I started late. Work, work, work is all he does and I try to make the weekends a haven of relaxed house and easy days. We have a blast together, however because he is putting one child through college and supporting the other three — our time is spent doing activities that are low in costs. We trim dollars with home meals and coupons, although half the time they don’t work — it’s me, I don’t know how to coupon cut yet!! We hike a lot and watch movies, I cook new recipes, and we get silly — dance funny to the Monkeys and run around the house playing catch or hide and seek, adult version — use your imagination.
We love to get up late and have coffee and tea on the porch in the sun, walk the dog and eat food.
This weekend we made frittata, so delicious and so easy to make. Really, it is baked eggs with whatever you want to add. It can be vegetarian, vegan or meat lovers.
Heat the skillet super hot, and add your garlic, onions and peppers, mushrooms (any veggie is delicious and bakes well), meat, whatever you prefer. I use olive oil for everything or coconut oil. They are better in taste, and healthier for your diet.
Then I add some cut potatoes to the mix– about 3-4 little ones (I cut into quares and boil before adding them to the frying pan)
I beat the eggs in a separate bowl with a couple of tbsp of water — this fluffs the eggs.
Place the mixed ingredients from the frying pan into a casserole dish, then add the eggs to the HOT frying pan and sear for a minute. Add eggs to the casserole dish covering the other delicious items and top with cheese. Bake at 350-ish for about 20 minutes. I like to sprinkle parsley on the top and add salsa and sour cream.
Using an actual casserole dish (glass, porcelain) is better looking and sticks less to the bottom of the pan.
REMEMBER this dish can be prepared with egg substitute and fake cheese. ADD any and all spices you like at any time during the prep. The whole family loves to eat eggs this way, they are filing, healthy, easy and quick to make. From start to finish about 40 minutes until eat time!! A happy tummy equals a happy disposition ending with special thanks to the cook!!
Eggs – about two per person
Veggies: garlic, onion, peppers, mushroom, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, anything really
Meat: your choice
