Leftovers to Frittata


I love quiche but when it comes to easy and a little less carbs, frittatas are awesome. The sky is the limit on ingredients and with a basic recipe you can produce an easy quick breakfast or lunch.  

Leftovers to Frittata

6 eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
leftovers:) or whatever you choose to cook and add
salt and pepper


 
 
The other morning I had a few leftovers and decided to use them in a quick frittata. 



Preheat your oven to broil.

This time I had a piece of leftover steak, some cooked broccoli, carrots and mushrooms.
 I chopped them into just smaller than mouth size pieces. 
 I  scrambled 6 eggs into a medium bowl and added a handful of grated Parmesan cheese. 
Add salt and pepper.  





Meanwhile spray your favorite cast iron skillet (if you don't have a cast iron skill, use an oven proof skillet) with Pam.

Place on medium heat and add meat and veggies.

Stir fry until heated through.  Add egg mixture and cook stirring gently until bottom has set up and the top just begins to set up.

Place in broiler and broil for 3 to 5 minutes (watch closely, it's so sad to burn it at this point)





Carefully remove from oven.  I love to add fresh cut herbs at this point like parsley or even thyme.   
Cut it into 6 sections and serve. 












Have you you seen these awesome little sweet peppers?  We have bought several bags and they are so good sweet and crisp and the perfect addition to any meal.
