Since we are going on vacation next week, I’m trying to use up a bunch of stuff in our fridge. So last night, I decided to make a frittata.
This is the simplest meal ever, so I thought I’d share it with you!
Ingredients (really, you can grab whatever you have in your fridge – any combo of leftover meats, veggies, and cheeses would be delicious, but here’s what I used):
- 10 eggs (or if you prefer, substitute 2 egg whites for each egg for a lower calorie version)
- 6 slices of turkey bacon, diced
- 2 cups of yellow squash, chopped
- 1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1/2 of an onion, diced
- 2 TB reduced fat feta cheese
- olive oil
- salt & pepper
- obligatory cooking buddy, aka a glass of red wine 😉
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Heat a large ovenproof non-stick skillet over medium high heat and cook up the turkey bacon. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add a little olive oil to the pan and cook up the onions and squash, along with salt and pepper to taste
- Add chopped tomatoes to the mix and cook for a few more minutes
- While the veggie mix is cooking up, crack the eggs into a big bowl and beat until frothy
- Next, make sure the veggies are spread evenly in your pan, and add the turkey bacon back to the pan
- Pour the egg mixture over the top. Next, cook the frittata on the stovetop until the eggs start to pull away from the edges of the pan and you can easily slide your spatula around the outside of the frittata
- Sprinkle the cheese over the top and pop into the oven. Cook about 15 minutes or until the eggs are set. I like to switch it to the broiler setting for the last couple of seconds and brown the top
This is a great dish for breakfast, brunch, or a light lunch and is perfect served along a simple green salad!
