Veggie Frittata Recipe

I make this veggie frittata all the time, in one variation or another.

NOM with salad, because I’m greedy 🙂

This one has a layer of sliced potato on the bottom, so it’s more filling. 🙂

Ingredients below are for a one person serving in a ceramic oven dish ( I got mine from Poundland). You can double up this recipe for 2 or quadruple it for 4 if you like. 🙂

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • dash of milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 medium mushroom
  • half a potato thinly sliced
  • Half a red bell pepper
  • half a medium red onion
  • sprinkle of mild grated cheese
  • half a tomato sliced
  • smoked paprika (literally my favourite spice after garlic)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees ( fan assisted).
  2. Add the thinly sliced potato to an ovenproof dish and put in the oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Fry off the onion,mushrooms & bell pepper until soft
  4. Take the potato out and transfer the veg to the dish.
  5. Whisk the egg, milk, salt & pepper, paprika and grated cheese and pour over the veg
  6. Lay the sliced tomato on top
  7. sprinkle some more paprika and a little cheese on top
  8. Put in the oven and cook for 25 minutes

TIP: I find that cooking the frittata covered with foil for about 15 minutes stops it from burning on top while the middle cooks, then take the foil off for the last 10 minutes.

Also, deep filled frittatas can sometimes be softer in the middle, so make sure you test it by putting a knife into the middle and seeing if it comes out clear (just like a cake). Just cook it a little longer if it’s not ready.

You can add meat to these too like cooked chicken or bacon, and you can have them at any time of day. I think they’d be lovely on a morning if you have the time. You could always make it the night before and reheat it too!

I’d love to know what variations you make with your frittata because I like to change my recipes up all the time. 🙂

Breakfast filled Omelette

I change this recipe every time I make it depending on what I have in the fridge.

But the general gist is a breakfast omelette filled with meat and veggies with some hot sauce and eaten for breakfast.

And it definitely wakes you up, that’s a promise!

In this one I’ve stir fried courgette, mushrooms, red onions and green bell pepper with a bit of Frylight (you can use any of them).

Then I’ve whipped up a 2 egg omelette with a dash of milk with a little salt and pepper, then transferred to a plate.

I then added the stir fried veg on one side of the omelette, along with some pulled apart chicken breast and some sriracha (hot sauce), then folded it over and there ya go!

Some times I like to add a sprinkling of cheese for an extra naughty twist for my tastebuds.

This is one of my favourite breakfasts because it’s really easy but also super filling for greedy buggers like me. 🙂

Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Last night while on my way home, I was racking my brains for breakfast ideas to keep me full until lunch (you’d think I would have this sussed by now). I thought I would do scrambled eggs with peppers and stuff but when I got home we only had one egg left as one other had cracked and I didn’t want to risk it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices bacon chopped with fat off
  • 1 courgette diced
  • 3 big white mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 1 medium tomato roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • half a red pepper diced
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika to taste
  • garlic to taste
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • Frylight sunflower oil

On a medium heat with Frylight, add the mushrooms,tomato and pepper; fry until they soften slightly.Add the bacon and courgette (courgette doesn’t take long to cook) and fry until the bacon is cooked through. Add all seasoning and then add the egg (you can mix it before you put it in but I just cracked the egg into the pan). Stir to make sure the egg coats the veg and fry until cooked, still stirring throughout.

That’s it! Sometimes, it doesn’t take a complex recipe to make something tasty and let me tell you this was super nommy and filling for my breakfast. It may not look pretty but was lovely. The only thing I would change is to use 2 eggs so you get more of the breakfasty taste but it really was nice! Next time you’re racking your brains for what to make, check your fridge and as long as you have eggs and a few random bits, you can always make your own version of a breakfast bowl!


 YUM!
