Breakfast for Dinner

A few nights ago, I decided to make breakfast for dinner.  I made what I call an “Italian Frittata” with home fries.  I was happy with the outcome, and so was Matt!

Italian Frittata:

  • Preheat the oven to 400º.
  • Dice 4 tomatoes.
  • Mince 5 cloves of garlic.
  • Add some EVOO to a pan; once heated add the garlic and sauté until soft and golden.
  • Add the tomato and cook a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine 6 eggs with a little s&p, a splash of skim milk, and some dried basil.
  • Whisk the eggs and add to the tomatoes and garlic.
  • Stir to combine and let set.
  • Once set, place in the oven and cook for about 6 minutes.
  • After about 6 minutes, add shredded mozzarella to the top of the frittata.  Cook until the cheese is melted.

For the home fries, I add already cooked potatoes that I diced.  I add some EVOO to a pan and then the potatoes.  (I did not have any onions in my house!  Unbelievable, right?!?  If I did, I would have added some chopped onion to the EVOO first and cooked before adding the potatoes.)  Season generously with s&p.  Then let cook; don’t stir too often.  Let the potatoes get golden brown on one side before stirring.
