Green Eggs and Goat Cheese Frittata

Good morning! I'm so happy that Woody's home. So are the doggies. We definitely missed him while he was gone. For breakfast today we made a wonderful GREEN frittata together (with fresh greens from the garden, of course!) Woody actually wanted me to title this post "Hakuna mafrittata" :-)

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups greens (we did a mix of kale, mustard and spinach)
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 cup black olives
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cheddar style goat cheese
  • salt and pepper
Note: These are all just rough estimates. Feel free to experiment with the amounts of veggies used. I wanted to add onion into the mix but we didn't have any. 

Begin by preheating the oven to 365 degrees. Finely chop all the veggies, mince the garlic and grade the cheese. Whisk the eggs in a medium size bowl. Then pour all the veggies (but not the cheese yet!) into the bowl with the eggs and mix everything together. Season with salt and pepper. 


It will totally look there are way too many veggies and not enough eggs, but don't worry! The eggs fluff up and the veggies cook down and everything works out in the end. Just like in life, right? :-) 

Then, lightly oil a medium sized pan and pour the mixture in. 


Now, go ahead and sprinkle the cheese on top. 


Now, pop a lid on the pan and toss that sucker in the oven! Bake for 30 minutes or so. You should end up with something that resembles this. 


I topped mine with some avocado and had two pieces of Udi's gluten-free toast shmeared with hummus on the side. 


Yay! What a lovely breakfast and wonderful morning spent with my love <3 

I didn't end up doing any baking yesterday so I plan on making something later today. But first, Woody and I are going to run out and do some errands. I'll be back later with a recipe for some kind of tasty treat :-)
