Why I Love This Recipe
I love eggs and since they agree with my make up I try to make them in as many different ways as possible. My husband found substituting eggs for a carb-based breakfast helped him normalize his cholesterol levels. So I try to combine ingredients that will keep him from getting bored. You can do mushrooms and uncured salami or pepperoni; my favorite is chopped organic Kalamata olives, organic red onion and feta cheese; any leftovers from dinner would be great as well as any left over roasted veggies. One of my dad's favorites was left over roasted lamb and diced, roasted potatoes. Growing up my grandmother made us a roasted potato frittata which has remained a favorite for me and my children and makes a satisfying and delicious meatless dinner. You are only limited by what you have on hand and your imagination.
Ingredients You'll Need
Omega 3 or pasture raised eggs - you can make a one-egg frittata which is what my husband likes during the week before going to the gym or a 3 egg frittata which is what I make for myself on the weekend.
Splash of organic half and half, milk, almond or coconut milk or water
Himalayan crystal salt, ground black pepper, Nutritional yeast and any other seasonings you like
Chopped veggies or meat
Shredded organic cheese (optional)
1 tablespoon Coconut oil, avocado oil or pasture butter
Preheat an oven safe frying pan on medium heat and put broiler on.
Beat your egg(s) with a splash of dairy or water (it makes the eggs fluffier)
Season them any way you like.
Chop any veggies or meat you would like to include in your frittata. The one pictured has chopped baby Bella mushrooms and uncured salami (one of my husband's favorites). You can use whatever floats your boat!
Briefly saute/heat through whatever veggies or meat you are including.
Pour egg mixture over and cook until bottom is set.
You can top with shredded cheese at this point if using.
Pop under the broiler just until top is set or cheese is melted.
Pairs Well With
Great all by itself or paired with a gluten free bagel or toast. You can serve it in a gluten free wrap which is how my sons like it. It also makes a delicious breakfast for lunch or dinner with a tossed salad.
