EASY DINNER # 3 - Frittata

From a series of easy dinner recipes, explained in this post.

FRITTATA (serves 6-8)

2 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. chopped onion (or I use 1 T. of dehydrated minced onion as a time saver)
Veggies, whatever you have on hand, cut/sliced*
Leftover chicken or sliced sausage (any kind), or ham
8 eggs
Herbs, whatever you like (I like 1 tsp. basil and 1 tsp. thyme) **
Salt & pepper to taste
1 - 1 1/2 c. grated cheese, whatever you have (cheddar, jack, colby, swiss, etc.), or a combination

In an ovenproof skillet saute onion, garlic and veggies in oil (leave spinach until the end); remove from heat and add tomatoes and chicken or sausage.  Heat oven to 400 degrees.  In a bowl, whisk together eggs, herbs, and S&P.  Add cheese and pour over veggies in skillet.  Bake about 35 minutes, until eggs are set.  Serve with salad.

e.g. mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, peppers, green onions
** If you want a Mexican flavor instead, leave these out and add about 1 c. of salsa in place of any tomatoes.
