Frittata, Frit-Ta-Ta

Frittata. Frit-Ta-Ta. Don’t you kind of want to sing it? Even a little?

Right. Me either.

This past week my friend Mag was in a play. A play where she got to miss school. For two days. Let me tell you:  make-up work stinks. There’s a lot. It’s stressful. And sometimes you just want to give up on it. Today Mag and I did one of her make-ups. The Frit-Ta-Ta make-up.

You’ve got to love cooking. Because in cooking you’re make-up is a Frit-Ta-Ta. And this is what a Frittata is….

3 eggs
2 tablespoons half-and-half
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
3 potatoes
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup mexican-style cheese
Whole wheat bread cubes or the bread of 1 whole wheat hamburger bun, torn up.
(As many veggies as your heart desires)
Veggies we used:
2 large carrots
1 onion
1 side of an orange pepper
A handful of spinach      
(Salt and Pepper to desire)

Preheat 350F

Boil water and cook the potatoes.
Chop the veggies into small bits,

Put the olive oil and veggies that will need to cook longer into the pan (Carrots and onions) When the carrots are softer, add the rest of the veggies.

Combine the eggs, half-and-half, cooked veggies, salt and pepper, and the cheese.

Now, put it in a pan (whatever will work, but a pie tin was the perfect size for us) and pop it in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Since you already cooked the veggies, all you need to cook is the eggs. So when they’re cooked, it’s done!

If all make-ups were like this I’d never go to school. Ever. This seems like a breakfast, but it’s great for dinner, too! Have fun with the recipe, you can really throw in anything you want. Veggies, different kinds of cheese, it’s not tempermental!

So go make one!! Throw in whatever you want, because there’s no possible way to mess this oen up! Time to hit the hay, have a Frit-Ta-Ta filled Friday!!
