Margherita Frittata

8:11 AM


After painting all day long, I had to come up with something fast and easy for dinner.  With all of these home improvement projects, I’ve had little time to make it to the store.  We had eggs, sundried tomatoes and lots of cheese in the fridge, so I decided on a frittata.  You can whip these up in no time and add a side salad or some kind of greens and you’ve got a complete meal!
This was inspired by another frittata recipe I found on www.epicurious.com, which was published in Bon Appétit in January of 2003.  This frittata tastes like pizza!  It’s soooo good!  It doesn’t need any meat because it’s already very hearty.  I know you’ll be a fan.  Try it.
What You Will Need:

10 eggs
¼ C reduced-fat milk
½ C sundried tomatoes, coarsely chopped

1 C shredded Mozzarella cheese
½ C Reduced-fat Feta cheese
What You Already Have:
1 tsp dried Minced onion
1 T dried Basil
Dash of pepper
½ tsp salt (you don’t really need it)
1 iron skillet
Non-stick cooking spray
½ T unsalted butter
Large bowl
1)      Preheat broiler to HIGH.
2)      In large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.

3)      Add cheese, basil, tomatoes, onion, pepper, and salt.  Mix well.
4)      Spray skillet with cooking spray.
5)      Melt butter over medium-high heat.
6)      Add egg mixture to skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes.  Shake lightly to cook evenly.
7)      Transfer to oven and broil for 4 minutes.
8)      Remove from oven.  Let cool for 1 minute.

9)      Slice and serve.
