Do you have a slew of random leftovers in your fridge that you're not sure what to do with? Wondering what you're going to make for dinner tonight? Well, I think that a frittata is the perfect meal to feed your family while also clearing up some room in your fridge! I kid you not, you can seriously put whatever you want into this egg creation & it will taste good (well, anything that you would have in your fridge in the first place).
Our frittata tonight consisted of half of a green pepper I had leftover which I chopped & roasted with a potato that was coming close to growing eyes & reaching the end of it's life & some grated garlic, salt & pepper. Then I chopped some leftover samosas from the Indian dinner we enjoyed with our friends on Sunday afternoon & mixed them in with beaten eggs & milk & threw in some cubes of cheese. When the green pepper/potato concoction came out of the oven, I tossed that into the egg mixture, poured it into a pan I had heating on the stove & let the frittata cook through on the bottom until it was time to finish it under the broiler of the oven until it was golden brown.
So, I challenge you to take a look around your kitchen, resist the urge to run to the grocery store for any additional ingredients & get creative while using what you already have on hand!
