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.
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.
