Holly’s Frittata

Recently I just found out a friend of mine was a vegetarian and when she checked out my blog, she said I should post more vegetarian recipes. I think she is right and I KNOW my mom would agree!

So she inspired this recipe. (Well, admittedly I was planning on making a frittata but without her inspiration it would have contained bacon! YUM. I won’t tell if you add it in!)

AND it seems that she likes a simple recipe that only uses about 5 ingredients. Any more than that and I sensed a little anxiety!

I took lots of step by step pictures on this one…

Here are the 5 ingredients

8 eggs (1 is missing from the pic)

1 cup milk (I used 2%)

about 3/4 of a cup of chopped green onions – reserve some for garnish

4 ozs feta cheese cubed/crumbled

3 small leftover baked potatoes – I always bake extra when I bake.

“free” pantry ingredients:

salt and pepper to taste, cooking spray and 2 oz of butter or margarine for the pan. ( I suppose you could just use cooking spray to keep this lighter…but why?)

Here is how you make it

Spray a 10″ oven-proof skillet and melt the butter or margarine in the bottom. Turn off the heat.

Slice the potatoes thickly and layer on the bottom in the melted butter/margarine. Next add the green onions and cubed feta.

Whisk the eggs and milk together and pour over the layers in the pan. Add some fresh cracked black pepper on top.

A little sea salt too, if you like.

Put into a preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 mins until the egg is firm and fluffy through the middle. You can peek gently with a knife. The edges will have pulled away from the pan sides and it should look like this…

Cool for 15-20 mins before slicing. Garnish with the reserved green onions and serve with favorite beverage. (Maybe mimosa’s?) You should get about 8 reasonable slices. Made in a square pan and sliced into squares – it could be used as brunch item with some other things, like bagels and fruit salad? Or bacon.
