Home skillet...

A great way to get rid of leftovers is to throw them into an omelet or frittata. Most veggies and cheeses will work. All you need to do is cut up your leftover veggies and heat them up a bit in the microwave. Then it all goes into the pan and you have a healthy, tasty meal in about ten minutes.

This morning I was able to finally say goodbye to a handful of roasted red potatoes I had. There wasn't enough to serve the whole family again but too many to just throw away. I also found a bit of goat cheese that had to go soon. So it all became a part of a breakfast frittata.

Breakfast Skillet Frittata

  • 5 large eggs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 large shallot, chopped fine
  • roasted potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces, heated up in the microwave
  • 2-3 oz of goat cheese
Turn oven on to BROIL (500 degrees F). Adjust the oven rack to the middle position.

Beat eggs well with salt and pepper in a bowl, set aside.

Heat up the oil in  a medium-sized cast iron skillet pan on medium-low.
Add the shallots and saute for about 5 minutes until softened. Evenly spread out the shallots and pour the eggs on top.
Add the potatoes and goat cheese, evenly dispersing everything. Cook undisturbed for about 5 minutes.
Then place the entire pan into the oven under the broiler for about 3 minutes or until the eggs are set. Remove from the oven and serve hot or warm.
