Spinach, kielbasa and onions, oh my!

Another Fritatta weekend has come to SPC. This one features spinach, onions, kielbasa and to add to the fun a Parmesan peppercorn cream sauce and homemade focaccia bread!

The sauce really put this one over the top. If you want to know how to make a cream sauce, watch SPC Episode #4 - the base sauce from that is the starter for this one!

Sunday Fritatta - 11/01/2015

Checked out the fridge and found these ingredients:

Sweet Corn (from frozen), button mushrooms, homemade pasta, bacon, garlic, onions and roasted chicken breast. Cheddar cheese will be added on top at the end.

Yes, yes, yes! I like putting rice in my fritattas as a binder and I thought, why not pasta. I had made some pasta the night before and just plunked in a bunch to join the fun.

The result was this:

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. and Mrs. Yum!

There's nothing more satisfying than taking leftovers and re-purposing them in such a delightful way. Actually, there are things that are more satisfying, but this is still really cool.

Welcome to Frittata Madness

Worthy of mad devotion...

Worthy of mad devotion...

Folks, I can't get enough of frittatas. If you don't know what one is, it's basically any collection of ingredients put in a frying pan with scrambled eggs cooked around them and usually shredded, melted cheese on top. At least that's my definition.

The thing is that I find myself making these little (actually not that little) monsters at least once every week. You can have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks (that's a large snack).

I also have been taking pictures of ones that I've made and have quite a collection that I've started posting on Facebook. 

In addition to that, I started a little contest where friends on Facebook get to guess what is in the frittata. The first friend to guess correctly gets to name the ingredients for the next frittata I make.

I'll then post that frittata for my friends to guess. Of course, the winner of the previous contest cannot participate. And the cycle continues from there. I will have to watch my weight or this could get a bit crazy!

So I invite you to go to my Facebook page and guess the frittata! Its fun and tasty.
