2 frittata recipes

Recently, a friend had to undergo surgery.  Prior to that, the hospital conducted tests on him.  That was when he discovered he had many conditions brought on by unhealthy eating habits for years.  When my man knew of it, he was determined to eat more home-cooked food as it is healthier than dining out.

Although I’d always cooked dinner, my relative’s massive stroke took up a lot of time after work.  So we ended up eating takeaways.  My man was sweet enough not to complain about it.  He was very supportive and I appreciate that.  However, now that my relative is recovering slowly but steadily, it is time to head back into the kitchen!

He loves my frittatas because I make them the way he likes them – not too cooked such that the eggs are hard.  He likes them still soft and fluffy.  So here are 2 frittata recipes – not THAT healthy, but still better than consuming fast food and junk food 😛  They’re very easy to make!

BACON, BROCCOLI AND CHEDDAR FRITTATA

Ingredients

Eggs

Bacon rashers, cut into small pieces

Broccoli florets

Grated cheddar

Butter

Ready-made ratatouille

Method

Melt butter in a skillet at medium heat and fry the bacon for a few minutes.  Add the broccoli, cover and cook till the broccoli is softened.  Stir ratatouille into the mixture and top it off with handfuls of grated cheddar.  Stir to mix the ingredients until the cheese is melted and gooey.

Looks so good, right? 😀  Next, lower the heat and pour in lightly beaten eggs.  Cover and cook till the eggs are set and at the consistency you want.  Once the dish is ready, turn off the heat, lift the skillet off the stove and eat right out of the pan!  Easy peasy, isn’t it?  And it tastes great too!

A dash of Guinness
