Everything but the Kitchen Sink: FRITTATAS!

Frittatas are another great way to use up the veggies in your kitchen.  You can easily customize them to your preferences.  My favorite combinations always include fresh herbs and goat cheese.  I love to slice potatoes or sweet potatoes and fry them with a slice or two of bacon and some chopped garlic and onions.  The addition of potatoes makes your frittata a bit heartier and more like a spanish tortilla-yummmmm.    Then I add whatever other veggies I have on hand- such as zucchini, squash, spinach, kale (once I even used spaghetti squash!) and sauté until tender.  Season the veggies with salt, pepper and fresh thyme or basil.  Whisk  some eggs and pour over the veggies.  Arrange the veggies evenly in the egg mixture and cook on the stove top until the bottom of the frittata is firm (the top will still be wet).  Top with some crumbled goat cheese (or whatever cheese you like) and thinly sliced tomatoes if you’d like.  Then pop under the broiler until the top is bubbly and lightly browned.  This will happen very quickly- some say to leave your hand on the oven handle when you are using the broiler, to resist the urge to go do something else and forget about your beautiful frittata as it quickly turns into a burnt mess that ruins your favorite pan… sigh… I loved that pan…

Top with more fresh herbs and enjoy.  Great for brunch or dinner!
