Clean out the fridge Frittata


by Nurse Nicky December 26, 2016

 As we head away for Summer Holidays and need to clean out the fridge, Frittatas are the perfect, easy and delicious breakfast, dinner or lunch option to make sure none of those wilted limp vegetables go to waste!

Frittatas are also great to use up leftover Christmas ham or turkey and make an excellent light lunch option after the heavy indulgent foods of the season.

Feel free to adapt depending on what you've got in the fridge and include any of your favourite extras for seasoning such as sun dried tomatoes, sliced olives or some dollops of cream cheese prior to baking.

Prep: 10 mins

Bake: 45mins

Ingredients:

  • 10 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk or almond milk
  • 1 cup cold left over meat (ham, turkey, cooked bacon, cold shredded chicken, sausage)
  • 2 spiralised zucchini (or grated)
  • 8 cherry tomatoes halved (or 1 tomato sliced)
  • 10 spears of asparagus
  • 1/2 red capsicum sliced
  • any other leftover veg eg. sliced mushrooms, spring onions, cubed sweet potato, kale, spinach leaves etc.
  • 50g feta crumbled (or tasty cheese)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Line a cast iron fry pan or flan dish with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2. Beat eggs and coconut milk together. Add salt and pepper.

3. Arrange vegetables and leftover cold cut meat in the dish evenly.

4. Pour egg mixture over vegetables in the pan and sprinkle with crumbled feta.

5. Place in oven for 45 minutes or until the center is cooked through.

Remove and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

 

Serve alongside a fresh salad, with your favourite chutney, relish or pesto.

Chocolate Peppermint Slice
Chocolate Peppermint Slice

I adore peppermint anytime of year, but there's something about the flavour that does remind me of Christmas time. It's probably the candy canes we used to sneak from the tree before the day or the after-dinner mints we used to have at our Grandparents. Whatever the reason, I thought a Peppermint Slice was rather appropriate this time of year!
