Chef Lane: Hakuna Frittata

It is super easy to make this savory dish, which will serve you all week for breakfast.  Better yet, it is easy to substitute for flavors.  Don’t like ham?  Have sausage.  Don’t like meat at all?  Add potatoes.  Too posh for cheddar?  Add something French and runny.  Hate cilantro?  Toss in some celery.  Throw in some dill.  Add a dash of garlic powder.  Squirt in some Sriracha.  Make it your own worry free dish.

For my favorite way, you will need:

  • 1.5 cups of Egg Beaters
  • 1/2 cup of chopped ham (I just minced up some lunch meat)
  • 1/4 cup of shredded  cheese (I used cheddar)
  • 2 Tbs of cilantro
  • 2 Tbs of parsley
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Cooking Spray

Turn on your broiler. 

Spray an oven safe skillet with cooking spray, then warm it on the stove.  In a separate bowl, combine all ingredients except for the cheese.  Hold on to your cheese!  When the skillet is hot, pour in your mixture and turn your heat down to medium.  Let the mixture cook until it is starting to set around the edges, then sprinkle half your cheese over the top.

When the mixture is starting to set throughout (and this takes between 10 and 15 minutes, depending), take it off the stove and put it in the broiler for 5 minutes.  Remove after 5 minutes (it will have puffed up like souffle–let it fall), sprinkle your remaining cheese on top, then broil for another few minutes, until the top is golden with gloriously toasted cheese.

Remove from broiler and let sit until cool.  Slice into 8 pieces.  Works out to about 2.5 WWPPV per slice, and you’ll be surprised how filling this is.
