It's that time again...

If you've got any breakfast recipes you'd like to share, post them in the comments today!

  1. You know me, a open request for a comment draws me in like a fly to honey. OK, not the best analogy for a food blog. Oh well, don't let that deter you from my new favorite go-to breakfast meal.

    Despite the fact that I never cook it for breakfast, always dinner, it is still breakfast food. We keep leftovers for breakfast and reheat. It's often even better the next day when the flavors meld together.

    The Breakfast Frittata

    oil, to coat pan
    miscelaneous filliing ingredients (our favorites are broccili & cheese or ham & cheese)
    salt and pepper to taste
    garlic (we omit, because hubby doesn't like)
    12 eggs
    1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese (we use the cheap stuff out of a can for this)
    4 oz addiional cheese (optional - but why not?)

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Sautee miscelaneous ingredients until soft in the biggest oven safe skillet you have. (Broccoli or other "tougher" ingredients should be steamed with a few tablespoons of water with lid on until soft). If the ingredients are already cooked (leftover veggies, meats, etc.) this step can be skipped.

    Beat eggs with Parmesan cheese, herb (if desired), and salt and pepper to taste.

    Evenly distribute misc. ingredients, then pour over egg mixture. You can sprinkle on misc. ingredients if they are already cooked after just after you pour in the eggs - it helps if you have them warmed (microwave). Without stirring, cook until the eggs start to set around the edges. Top with extra optional cheese at this point. Put pan in oven and bake until eggs are puffed and set, or for about 10 to 12 minutes. Cut and serve pie style out of the skillet. If you want to keep it while you work on other sides, cover with lid and it is just as good a little later.

    This is a great method for cooking eggs, because I can use whatever extra meat and/or vegetables I have leftover. We have found that the broccili and cheese is mine and my brother's favorites. The boys and my bloggy hubby really love the ham and cheese combo.

    This can sit on the back of my stove for half and hour after cooking while I'm flipping a huge mound of pancakes for dinner. It is not a fussy dish. I love that it waits for us! I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
