People assume that you have to spend a lot of money to eat healthy, and that eating quality food will break your bank.Not so my friends, not so! One of the goals of this blog is to demonstrate that healthy and traditional foods can be purchased on a strict budget. How do I know? I do it every damn week/month! Today’s recipe is a frittata that uses all organic foods (some local) and is a whopping $.41 per serving. You read that right; don't adjust your monitors – $.41.Per.Serving.
Fritattas are one of my favorite breakfast or even dinner time meals! Using one dish. Definitely my kind of thing! It’s basically a quiche, or “egg pie” without having to mess with making a crust.
-2 potatoes, thinly sliced
-chives (fresh or dried) – 2 tsp
-lemon pepper – 1/4 tsp
-dill (fresh or dried) – just a dash
-a shit ton of fresh garlic
-salt & pepper to taste
-1/2 cup of Milk ( I used almond breeze 1/2 almond 1/2 coconut milk)
-spinach or kale (or greens of choice)
-Light Sprinkle of cheese
1) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2) In a cast iron or other oven-proof pan, heat a few tblsp of olive oil and add your sliced potatoes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir for a few minutes until they're a bit softer.
3) Add a plethora of minced garlic, and a handful of your favorite greens. Stir until the greens are wilted a bit. Add your meat here if you're using it. And if it is already cooked!
4) In a medium bowl, whisk your 6 eggs, milk, dill, chives, and lemon pepper. Add to the pan.
5) Top with cheese. I used cheddar and a little bit of feta to this one. I think smoked gouda would be amazeballs on this.
6) Bake for 7-10 minutes or until the eggs are solid.
Here's Where I made my Clean Kitchen MESS!!!!
7) To me, this dish is almost a complete meal because it has veggies, protein from the eggs. I always go simple and simply serve with a side of fruit. DONE!!
Brian is always stoked to wake and find this for breakfast. He makes “yummy sounds” while eating all 3 of his pieces of it. ENJOY!!!
