I got this recipe from Cooking at Home, from the Culinary Institute of America. I'm posting it for ZWT4. This is a classic recipe, makes an easy brunch or supper.
- 1⁄2 cup peas
- 1⁄2 cup carrot, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup asparagus, sliced into 1 inch pieces
- 4 slices bacon, diced
- vegetable oil, if needed
- 1 onion, diced
- 8 eggs
- salt and pepper
- Steam or boil peas, carrots and asparagus until tender, drain well and set aside.
- Cook bacon in an ovenproof skillet over low heat until crisp.
- Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain.
- Add vegetable oil to bacon grease (if necessary) to equal 2 tablespoons.
- Increase heat to medium/low and add the onion.
- Cook until transparent, stirring occasionally.
- Add vegetable mixture to onions and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in another bowl, beat eggs and salt and pepper together.
- Pour over mixture in skillet and add bacon crumbles. Stir gently.
- Preheat broiler.
- Reduce heat and cover eggs. Cook until almost set.
- Remove lid and place under broiler until eggs are lightly browned (about 3 minutes).
- Remove from oven and cut into wedges.
- **Alternate recipe** Can also be made by substituting 1 cup of cooked, diced potatoes for the veggies.
Very easy, Very Good. I made two of these for brunch. I had leftover veggies off the grill, yellow squash, zucchini, red pepper and mushrooms, so I cut up 1 1/2 cups of those. I used the leftover steak for one and made the other with browned pork sausage. I sprinkled a little mozzerella on top. They were so savory and delicious. I told the kids it was omelet pizza and they gobbled it up. I think this is a great base recipe and will be trying it often with different veggies and meats.
This was a delicious Fritatta recipe! I added a handful of left over chopped potatoes and scaled it down to serve 2 for a lovely brunch. Thanks for posting! :) Made for ZWT 4
