Recipe by Lennie
If you want to use the tomato, look for a roma plum tomato at the grocery store; it's perfect. This is a great lunch or supper for one person, and the recipe easily doubles too.

This was a wonderful start. I never had made a fritatta before. The first time I made it in a regular pie plate but it came out too thin. So I went on Amazon and found mini pie plates that ended up making the perfect size. This morning I used two large eggs with a couple of teaspoons of milk mixed in: a little ground sea salt and pepper into the eggs. I sauteed in butter, a few sliced mushrooms, a little red onion and green onions, a leftover cooked sausage patty crumbled and a few cooked leftover diced potatoes as that is what I had. Next time, I will use more veggies like diced tomatoes and spinach or kale. As a reminder, don't forget to grease your baking dish. I used coconut oil spray.

- Note that just about everything here is optional.
- Use vegetables you like.
- Use the kind of cheese you like.
- And if you don't have leftover boiled potatoes, don't sweat it.
- The dish will just be a little less hearty.
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
- Spray a pie plate with Pam.
- Beat eggs in a fairly large bowl.
- Meanwhile, heat butter (or cooking oil, but butter tastes better) in a skillet and saute the veggies of your choice along with the garlic.
- When tender, scrape into the beaten eggs.
- Add the parsley, cheese (try swiss for a change, or even mozzarella) and seasonings and stir.
- Pour into prepared pie plate and bake for 20-25 minutes until set.
- Let stand for two minutes, then cut into wedges and enjoy.
