Use What you Gotta Frittata

20121116-170906.jpg
When I had my restaurant our quiche of the day was one of our most popular lunches. It worked out well for everyone, as that was where all the unused prepped vegetables from the night before ended up. My formula was always non- traditional with the egg mostly a binder to hold a ton of vegetables and some cheese together. I often use fresh herbs or spices too, it’s still my go-to at home for using up vegetable sides.

Before writing this I happen to Wikipedia Frittata up make sure I had the proper amount of t’s. Turns out the crustless dish I make at home is more akin to the Middle Eastern dishes Eggah and Kuku. Needless to say, anything cut into triangles seems to be a hit with my family. Leftover leftovers are great breakfast sandwiches as well! This at least serves 4-6 with some salad and bread. I made in 8×8 glass casserole.
For this one: oven to 375*
6-8 eggs depending on egg size
1 cup skim milk
About 1 cup leftover baked acorn squash
1 cup roasted w/ olive oil, S&P, celery root cubes
About 2/3 cup braised collards w/garlic
4 Slices of Muenster cheese
Beat eggs, add milk and beat till really frothy, add squash and mix well.
Then stir in collards and celery root.
Pour in pan and place sliced cheese on top. Bake for 45 minutes or until knife comes out clean from center.
Please, by all means improvise ! love to hear about crazy combos .
