As I stared at my carton of eggs I realized that I wasn't in the mood for hard boiled eggs with my salad today. So, I had a look inside my fridge for inspiration.
Here is what I took out:
Yes, a fritatta in the works!
The beauty of this type of dish is that you can use whatever veggies you have on hand.
Add a tablespoon each of butter and grapeseed oil to a med-high heat frying pan. Let it heat up and then add sliced onion, diced pepper and chopped broccoli (everything needs to be pretty small).
Add some salt and pepper and saute until the onions start to brown. Meanwhile whisk 8 eggs in a bowl with some salt and pepper. Turn on the broiler in your oven. Once the onions are browning, pour in the eggs and turn the heat down a little. Chop up some of the rosemary (maybe a tablespoon?) and I also sprinkled some Italian seasoning on it. Once you see the sides start to set (you can lift some areas to let some uncooked egg get through to the bottom of the pan) take it off the heat and place it under the broiler. Once it is the colour you see in the photo, it is done!! The whole process is quick and easy AND SUPER DELICIOUS! I chopped mine up into a bowl of greens with grape tomatoes, cucumber and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. I will then cut the pieces into individual slices and wrap them up - ready for a quick reheat for breakfast on a piece of Rideau Bakery Rye toast ....or even on it's own. Very portable and makes a great dinner or snack, too.
