Check out this morning's creation - I think you could make a few of these, slice up and store them in the fridge for some quick breakfasts on the go. Anyways, check out my recipe:
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
2 slices deli ham, chopped
2 large eggs + 1/4 cup egg white substitute
2 tbsp salsa
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cilantro, coursely chopped
optional: handful of black tortilla chips, crumbled
Preheat oven to 400degrees. Heat the olive oil in a small ovenproof skilled over medium heat. Cook the onion, pepper & ham for about 5 - 6 minutes.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites & salsa. Slowly add the egg mixture to the skillet.
With a spatula, draw down the edges of the egg so that the liquid centre oozes to the sides, and helps to create a thicker edging. I don't know how to explain this. Just keep doing it for about 5 minutes until it is set up pretty good and the centre is still a bit runny.
|see how its running to the edges?|
Next, grab a plate and cover the top of the skillet; invert the skillet & voila! You have a frittata! Top with a pinch of sea salt, and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese and cilantro.
I served mine on top of a bed of crumbled tortillas (because I like when the chips go soggy) but that was maybe a bit too funky for Todd - he just ate his frittata normal.
