I am learning to be more creative and innovative in my cooking with inspiration like that around all the time. One tasty thing he has done lately has become a regular in our house. He takes small portions of vegetables or meat, adds seasonings (which always includes what he calls the tri-fecta, garlic, onion, and bacon) and makes a frittata.
Here’s how it goes:
- Cut up ingredients.
- Saute ingredients. (Dee would add to always use a cast iron skillet.)
- Add seasonings.
- Beat 8-12 eggs, depending on size of skillet and how many servings.
- Pour eggs over ingredients in the skillet and cook over medium heat until it starts to set.
- Sprinkle cheese over the top.
- Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes until it’s cooked all the way through.
The only thing I’ve come up with is using leftover rice and beans to make quesadillas but they ate it up.
