Frittata's are Italian egg based dishes that make use of whatever you have in your kitchen. Use your imagination because the varieties are endless. I decided to use the leftover meatballs from the other night to make mine. Think egg pizza or even crust-less quiche! The meatballs contain a lot of protein while the eggs are full of vitamin A, D, E, Iron and Zinc which is good for bones, teeth, eyes and skin. Talk about healthy eating.
1.5-2 Meatballs (chopped up) - see my previous gluten free meatball recipe
1 Small Sweet Onion (chopped)
1/4 Cup of Grated Cheese Mix (I used Mozzarella and Cheddar)
Salt and Pepper (as desired)
1 TBSP of Canola Oil
1 TBSP of Butter
Preheat the over to broil at 360 degrees.
Place canola oil and butter in a small frying pan (must have a metal handle) and place on the stove top on medium heat.
Crack the eggs into a bowl add some salt and pepper as desired and whip the eggs.
Place the grated cheese, chopped onion, chopped meatball and whipped eggs into one larger bowl and mix together.
Place the egg mixture into the frying pan on the stove until the bottom is cooked and settled. You can tell it has settled by the bubbling that starts along the side.
When you start to see the bubbling, remove from the stove top and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the top starts to become golden.
Be careful taking it out of the oven as the handle will be hot!!! Let it cool for a minute or two, cut into pie slices and serve.
