Breakfast Frittata

Breakfast Frittata


  • 1/2 c liquid egg whites & 1 whole egg or 4 eggs but only 1 with the yolk
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 4-5 sliced mushrooms
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 3 stalks of leftover asparagus
  • 1 tomato seeded and chopped
  • 3-4 slices ham, chopped
  • 1 TBS green chilies from a can
  • 1/4 c shredded cheese from the package
  • 1/4 c cilantro
  • 2 TBS oil


  1. Preheat “Broiler” of oven
  2. Saute vegies, ham, green chilies and anything else you want to put into it in 2 TBS of oil & garlic  in a non-stick pan that can go into the oven.  
  3. Whip the eggs with a fork and season with S & P, cumin, mexican flavorings….whatever you have on hand
  4. pour on top of the vegies and let it cook on med heat until the sides have hardened.  **now, slip a spatula underneath and tilt the pan, allowing the waterey egg to go underneath the spatula, so that it will cook.  Do this at different places in your pan…as you would do with an omelet.
  5. When the egg mixture is hardened with minimal loose egg on top, take off the stove & put the 1/4 cup cheese on top topped with cilantro and put under the broiler for 5-7 mins…or until golden brown
  6. When done, take out and let it set, then put on a cutting board and use a pizza cutter to cut into quarters.
  7. Top with salsa…or even sour cream!! it’s your frittata, go at it!!


Took leftover risotto, fried it…then added sliced tomatoes, sliced avocado, a poached egg, little sprinkling of cheese, some salsa…cilantro and OMG…BREAKFAST!!!!! How easy is that?????
