Last Minute Frittata

I am home alone for dinner tonight…always a good time for eggs. I have to admit eggs for dinner is not Murray’s fav supper, but I like it so this is a great opportunity to make eggs! He can eat the leftover fritter for breakfast tomorrow!

I did not really have a recipe but I can write down one! It took no time at all to cut up some veg, saute them, whisk the eggs, add milk salt & pepper …& cook it! It was very satisfying …eggs & toast for dinner. I looked up frittata on the internet just to confirm how I thought I should make it….so I read how to make a frittata on kitchn  so I was inspired by them!

The vegetables I used were what I had on hand in the fridge & in the freezer…you can use any vegetables you have available that you like to eat…mushrooms, onions, broccoli, tomatoes, white potatoes, etc  whatever you like


Here is the recipe

1/4 red pepper

1 small carrot

1 small sweet potato

I had some frozen veg so I added about 3 cauliflower florets & some frozen spinach


1 tbsp oil

6 eggs

1/4 cup milk

salt & pepper

2 handfuls of grated cheddar cheese


Preheat the oven to 400f

  1. Slice & chop the red pepper, grate the carrot & sweet potato ( you can spiralize the potato if you want!) Set these aside..
  2. Prepare whatever vegetables you want to use by cutting them into small pieces
  3. Use a cast iron skillet or a skillet that can go in the oven….
  4. Heat the oil in the skillet & add the prepared vegetables & cook them until they are soft. Stir often to avoid the vegetables from burning & sticking to the pan
  5. While the vegetables are cooking, whisk the eggs & milk together. Season with salt & pepper to taste
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the cooked vegetables
  7. Sprinkle the cheese over the egg & vegetables
  8. Cook over medium heat until the edges look firm
  9. Put the pan in the oven to bake for about 10-15 minutes until the eggs are cooked through
  10. Remove from the oven
  11. Cut into wedges to serve

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
