Frittata Recipe~ A Great Way To Use Leftovers!

Posted on 02 June 2012 by noelskitchen

Frittata is a dish I’m surprised I don’t make more often and include it in my weekly menus. A Frittata can be as simple as throwing some eggs, cheese, and some veggies together and baked. I like to make Frittata using leftover ingredients from the fridge.  I added all of our favorite ingredients…fried potatoes, tomatoes, ham, bacon, green peppers, broccoli and of course, the eggs and cheese. Serve with a side of fresh fruit and you have a perfect meal for breakfast or dinner!

 

 Frittata Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 potatoes, washed and cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 1-2 tablespoons oil for cooking potatoes and onions (helps Frittata cook faster)
  • 4-5 strips of cooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped ham
  • 1/4 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli crowns
  • 2 tablespoons butter for cooking green peppers and mushrooms
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon {we like cooking in the oven}
  2. In a large skillet {that can be put in the oven} cook potatoes and onions until tender
  3. Remove from pan and set aside
  4. Chop ham, bell pepper, broccoli, set aside
  5. Add eggs and milk to a measuring cup or bowl and whisk until fluffy, add cheese and stir until combined
  6. After the bacon is done cooking, crumble
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  8. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, vegetables, ham and bacon to a medium mixing bowl and mix together.
  9. Pour egg mixture on top and stir slightly
  10. Pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish and place in oven
  11. Cook until the eggs are set on the bottom or knife inserted comes out clean, approximately 30-35 minutes.

What’s For Dinner: 45 Minute Main Dishes~ Tomato Basil Garden Quiche

Posted on 16 May 2012 by noelskitchen

Easy enough meal for the family that can use leftover items from the fridge or fresh veggies from the garden to transform this meal into a tasty dish.

There are so many different ingredients to add to a quiche that makes me love them so much. Not to mention the fact that we are overwhelmed with fresh farm eggs from our chickens. You all know we love to serve breakfast for dinner. It’s not only a very budget family meal, it’s a very satisfying meal that’s quick and easy to throw all the ingredients together so you can spend more time with your family.

I have to admit, this was my first time making quiche with tortillas as a base. When I wrote out the meal plan, my intentions were to add some type of meat to the quiche like ham, but when I looked in my fridge, I had so many fresh veggies I omitted the ham and it paid off. We all enjoyed it and had some for breakfast the next morning.

Tomato Basil Garden Quiche

Serves: 6

Ingredients:

  • 6 to 8 6-in. flour tortillas
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 bunch (8 to 10) fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 5-ounce can (2/3 cup) evaporated milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x13 casserole baking dish.
  2. Carefully place tortillas in baking dish slightly overlapping until bottom is covered. (If a little goes up the sides, that’s okay.)
  3. Spread the diced tomatoes, green bell pepper, onion and basil evenly in the baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt and pepper together. Add shredded cheese and mix until combined.
  5. Pour egg/cheese mixture in baking dish over vegetables.
  6. Bake in over for 18 to 22 minutes or till a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Posted on 02 October 2011 by noelskitchen

Rise and Shine! Nothing gets kids moving in the morning like a hearty breakfast. This is a fun twist to the Breakfast Burritos I make for the kids. I left off the handles on the baskets since I used my extra large muffin pan to bake the tortillas and they were easier to handle for the kids.
