Difficulty Level Easy
With all of the rushing around at this time of the year, sometimes you just want a simple dish that takes ten minutes to make and you can eat without any fuss. The perfect food for that situation is a frittata. It's also the perfect way to clean your fridge out a bit. If you've got some odds and ends in the vegetable crisper, then just add them in.
I wanted to keep my frittata simple, so I just added some cheddar cheese, some olives and a bit of my homemade tomato pickle. I usually mix the cheese in with the eggs, but this time I grated it and spread it on the top, so you get a bigger hit of cheese with each bite. Mushrooms, potatoes, red peppers, broccoli all make good additions to a frittata. Check out your fridge and see what you can come up with. This is what I did with it.
|2||eggs per person|
|1/2 tsp||dried thyme|
|1 tbsp||butter or olive oil|
|cheddar cheese, grated|
|1 tbsp||tomato pickle|
- Lightly whisk eggs in a bowl and add thyme and milk. Whisk to incorporate milk.
- In an oven proof skillet melt butter or heat olive oil. Add eggs and allow to cook until the bottom is done but it is still slightly runny on top.
- Spread cheese, olive slices and tomato pickle over top and place under the broiler. Watch carefully so that the cheese doesn't burn. Broil until cheese is golden brown.
