Welcome to the home of BIZZY people where cooking is fun, quick, easy and delicious. Over the years, my taste in food has changed, as have my recipes. This blog will chronicle the changes I continue to make, as I face challenges in healthier eating and in new methods of cooking.
I think the image of breakfast has changed and we tend to eat anything from a bowl of cereal to coffee cake to an egg extravaganza and all that goes in between My favorites are stuffed French Toast or apple pancakes. When I was a child, we did not eat cake for breakfast, EVER. Although, we had simple breakfasts, they satisfied me. Now, I would be bored with them. Sounds like I am more of a spoiled brat as an adult than as a child.
This frittata makes a great breakfast as well as dinner which is when I plan to serve it. I based it on a Mr. Food recipe but I made my own hash browns rather than use frozen ones. I used my favorite too, the bench scraper. I must admit, each time, I mention this tool, I start to write bench press. I guess that is because I need to exercise while eating such good food.
I love the bench scraper. I use it for chopping almost anything. It does not work well with bell peppers. I use it to scrape up cut up vegetables to go into a skillet. If I have spilled sugar or flour, out comes the bench scraper and it does a better job than any other kind of scooper. To sum it up, I keep the bench scraper out, most of the time, and I end up using it, most of the time.
Breakfast Frittata (adapted from Mr. Food) Serves: 4
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 cup potatoes, chopped for hash browns
1 small onion, diced
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat. Add potatoes, and cook 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally.
After five minutes, add onions and orange pepper. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cheese, salt, and black pepper.
Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 5 to 8 minutes, or until eggs are completely set. Slice into wedges, and serve.
