Farm Market Frittata

Written by Diana - September 20, 2012 2 Comments

Eggs are a lovely protein, don’t you think?  We often turn to eggs when we want something quick and delicious for breakfast or dinner.  I made this frittata the other day using eggs, farm market veggies and a vegetarian burger(okay, it’s a Luna Burger – anything tastes good with a Luna Burger in it) crumbled up, plus some cheese.  My husband took a bite and told me it wasn’t right, because his eggs don’t taste this good, and aren’t this filling when he makes them. The end of summer is bittersweet because the fresh locally grown veggie supply starts to wane, but at the same time they have their best flavor.  Get’em while their fresh.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 small green pepper
  • 2 baby eggplant
  • ¼ cup crookneck squash
  • vegetarian or grain sausage patty
  • 4 small cherry tomatoes
  • shredded cheddar
  • 4 oz goat cheese
Instructions
  1. Scramble eggs with 1 tbs water, and set aside.
  2. Dice and saute in warm pan with olive oil - onions and green pepper.
  3. I used baby eggplant but didn't peel, just sliced little circles.
  4. The squash was peeled and sliced to about the same size.
  5. When the onion is almost translucent and soft, add the squash and eggplant to the onion and pepper.
  6. When the eggplant starts to soften, place the veggies in a bowl and set aside temporarily.
  7. Add a little oil to the pan and warm the vegetarian burger. Remove, break into a little smaller than bite size pieces and set aside.
  8. Swish lightly with oil, pour the eggs into the pan, let start to cook.
  9. Add in the sauteed veggies, and the tomatoes.
  10. Dollop the goat cheese into the eggs and place the pieces of vegetarian sausage in under the egg.
  11. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
  12. Place pan in oven under a low broil until egg is firm and cheese is melted.
  13. Serve slices on plate and grate a little more cheese over top.
Notes
When you stick a pan in the oven under the broil, you want to make sure you won't damage any of it by sticking it under the heat. I used a low broil to make sure it doesn't quickly overcook. I protected the handle of the pan with foil to make sure it didn't burn or melt. I would not use this pan over high. If you have a cast iron skillet that would have been better.

    I liked Luna burgers a lot! My favorite cbus bar would serve them up in burritos. :)

    Andrea,
    Can you get Luna Burgers there? If you get a chance to travel, Paonia might be a town for you to check out. The Flying Fork Cafe has a lamb shank that is fantastic.
