See, at first, I didn't make frittatas because I didn't have one of those fancy shmancy pans that you can also put in the oven (yes, I know you can do them stove-top... shhh). Then I got one; and there went that excuse.
Excuse #2 was that hubby does not like "Breakfast food" for dinner (yes, he's a weirdo... but I still married him). Well... then the other weekend hubby had his weekend national guard drill and he was gone for dinner. So... yes... there went excuse #2.
So I decided to bit the bullet and give it a go. In my frittata recipe searching I came to one conclusion... Anything goes (I think that's what intimidated me the most actually). Start with eggs, cheese, and milk... and you are good to go (this is a good recipe that I came across after-the-fact).
For my VERY FIRST FRITTATA (woohoo!)
diced ham that I had in the freezer (thawed)
1. First thing I did was saute the asparagus and mushrooms in butter until there was no more liquid and the mushrooms and asparagus were tender.
2. Next, while the pan was still on the stove, I threw throw in my (thawed) ham, cheese, and pour beaten eggs/splash of milk over the mixture. I cooked this on the stove for a few minutes and then I moved it into a 400* oven and bake until set and browned.
3. This is what it looked like coming out of the oven. YUM!
4. And... less pretty, this is my frittata turned out on a plate.
I liked it a LOT and so did the girls.
Now that I have overcome my intimidation by frittatas, I think there will be a lot more in my future (sorry hubby!)
