I rarely run out of eggs. I always say that as long as I have eggs, I will have a meal to throw together. I also never like to waste food. I love figuring out ways to get multiple meals to coordinate with the same ingredients. Enter the clean-out-the-fridge-frittata!
Here are my leftovers. Zucchini and potatoes-both grilled with onions and garlic...and a little bit of leftover bacon (and do I see mushrooms in there?).
I arranged my grilled potato slices in my hot, oiled skillet. Sometimes I use torn up pieces of bread.
I whisked 6 eggs with a little bit of milk. I've got some hungry mungries I need to feed.
I recruited some small hands to crumble up the bacon for me.
I have 3 small kids who eat some veggies pretty well, but, for added assurance, I often puree their veggies into our meals. I used my immersion or "stick" blender.
I mixed it into the egg mixture.
I poured it on top of the potatoes in the skillet. Then, when the bottom of the eggs started to set,
I sprinkled parmegiano-reggiano all over it and
put it into the broiler to finish it off.
I may have had to change one too many diapers after putting it in the broiler and let the cheese get a tad too browned. It happens easily around here.
It made a great dinner, though.
The best part is that our leftovers weren't forgotten about or wasted!
