Eating In: Easy Frittata

Frittatas have quickly become a staple in my home. Perfect for weekend brunch, this dish can be catered to each individual by simply combining eggs and super fresh ingredients or those leftovers you've been wanting use.
I take my ramekin and spray it generously with an oil spray/diffuser. Then I add 2 whisked eggs and whatever I happen to have on hand. This time I used some thawed peas, chopped red bell pepper, chopped yellow onion, leftover chicken from a Chinese curry dish ordered the night before, salt and pepper. Last, but not least, I add shredded cheese. Any cheese will do. Just make sure you use shredded/crumbled pieces (which you can do yourself) to ensure for even distribution. The proportions of each ingredient are up to you and will depend on the size of your ramekin.

Next, I pop it in the toaster oven and bake for 20 minutes, then set to broil for another 20 minutes. The cheese creates a yummy golden crust and the eggs fluff up beautifully once baked. Be careful removing your ramekin, as it will be extremely hot. I love adding a dollop of Sri Racha chili sauce for an added kick. You've made a satisfying and easy, yet elegant meal for one (or for many). And you save money by not wasting leftovers. Consider using tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, herbs, bacon/prosciutto and scallions.

Bon appetit!
