My kids love breakfast for dinner. It’s fun and sorta feels like breaking the rules. Sometimes we do pancakes or french toast, but sometimes we do something a little different like this frittata.
I like to make it because it’s easy, but it also feels a little fancier, like something you’d get at a nice brunch. And you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. I like to throw chopped cooked bacon or ham in sometimes, too.
Frugal Recipe: Vegetable Frittata
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
- 1/2 cup chopped asparagus
- 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 6 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to low broil setting.
- In an oven-safe skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, bell pepper, asparagus, broccoli, and salt and pepper. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
- While the vegetables are cooking, whisk together the eggs, milk, and cheese in a medium bowl until everything is well combined.
- Add the egg mixture to the pan and gently (but quickly) stir everything together (you don't want to make scrambled eggs; you just want the vegetables to be evenly distributed). Cook until the bottom is set and the top begins to set, about 5-7 minutes. Add the pan to the oven and cook until the top is set and looks fluffy, about 3-5 minutes longer.
- Serve immediately.
