This morning, I'm excited to share with you my simple recipe for a breakfast frittata that will put your leftovers to good use!
I hate to see food sit in the fridge and go to waste~ so this is the perfect way to be resourceful and get the most out of your ingredients. It will also save you on cash & extra cooking time in the kitchen!
This dish comes together in less than 20 minutes, and is as pretty as it is tasty!
I've written this recipe the way I would make it: Paleo-friendly & workable for a Whole30. However, do feel free to change it up to fit your family's taste buds! You can add cheese or use whole dairy milk instead of coconut milk. Just treat this as a guide, and get creative!
Enjoy this for brunch with friends, Saturday morning breakfast with your kids, or as a "meal prep" dish to portion for the week! The options are endless...
- 1-2 cups leftover meat, diced
- 1 cup hash brown potatoes
- 1 cup mixed veggies
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 2 tsp spices*
- 2 Tbsp fat of choice
- large oven-safe skillet
- medium mixing bowl
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, and spices.
- On the stovetop, heat the cooking fat in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat.
- Sauté the hash browns & veggies until tender, then stir in the diced meat.
- Pour the whisked eggs over top, and do not stir. Allow the eggs to cook on the stove for 2 minutes, then transfer to the oven.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes or until the eggs are "set" (don't jiggle if you shake the pan).
- Slice & serve hot with garnish of choice!
- Any leftover meats will work! Try ham, tri-tip, steak, or sausage.
- For veggies, you can stick to something simple like spinach or broccoli, or stir in whatever leftover vegetable you have on hand. Try butternut squash, bell peppers, mushrooms, or asparagus.
- I like using an all-purpose spice blend like "Paleo Powder", or a mix of dried onion, garlic powder, and salt & pepper.
- This is a simple recipe, that you can easily dress up with a fancy sauce, pretty herb garnish, or slices of avocado. Get creative!
