Did you parents used to tell you not to play with your food? Mine did. The great thing about being an adult is that I can play with my food as much as I like! The only drawback is that I have to clean everything up myself LOL.
I made this pac man frittata with lots of vegetables and some beef. The secret of a firm frittata is to make sure that all the vegetables/meats have been cooked and are free of extra moisture. This time I sautéed my vegetables, but I’ve also steamed them before.
The great thing about frittata is that you can use all your leftovers, it’s easy to make, and can be served warm or cold. (If you are vegetarian substitute the beef for something else)
- 8 eggs
- ½ pound ground beef
- ½ cup sautéed kale
- ½ cup sautéed union
- ¾ cup sautéed mushroom
- ¼ cup sautéed spinach
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 325.
- Sautee the kale, union, mushroom and spinach.
- Add some salt to taste.
- Cook the ground beef until brown and add some salt and pepper to taste.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs and stir in all the vegetables, ground beef and cheese.
- Heat the cast-iron pan or oven proof skillet over medium heat, add a little oil and brush with a piece of paper towel the olive oil on the bottom and sides.
- Pour the egg mixture in the cast-iron pan and cook on low/medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes without stirring. The edges will turn golden brown.
- Put the pan in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the oven, loosen the edges and bottom with a knife and spatula.
- Cut into wedges, as large or small as you like.
- Bon appetit!
