Tonight’s dinner was inspired by this recipe I found on Food Network.  I used my food processor to make the Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata EXTRA creamy and delicious.

How I made the ultimate cheesy frittata:

 

  • In a heavy skillet (one that you can place directly in the oven), stir-fry a generous splash of extra virgin oil olive and chopped white onion until the onion browns.
  • Meanwhile, microwave 2 cups of frozen broccoli in a little water for 5 minute.  Drain and place in food processor.
  • Blend broccoli in processor for about 30 seconds.  Add to skillet and mix with EVOO and onion.

  • Rinse food processor and add about 1/3 block of white cheddar cheese.  Processes until crumbly.

  • Add 6 eggs to processor and re-blend the cheese and eggs for about 30 seconds.
  • Pour egg and cheese mix into skillet.

  • Give it a stir and cook on the stovetop for about 6 minutes on Medium.
  • Meanwhile, turn on the broiler.
  • Put eggs under broiler for 3 minutes or until top browns.
  • Top with salt and pepper. 
  • Cool and serve.

 

SO EASY!

I had about 1/3 of the frittata with a small sweet potato (with was topped with 1/2 a block of Laughing Cow):

  Other afternoon snacks included apricots, cereal, and another vegan chocolate chip cookie — but I deleted all the pictures by accident!  Whoops.  :(

 

I’m off to tackle the closet of doom:

I’m putting this picture up to SHAME ME into organizing my closet!  Told you it was bad!

    That frittata looks super yummy!

    Good luck organizing your closet! Mine gets out of control sometimes too and nothing feels better than organizing it. Okay, lots of things do (like eating ice cream or chocolate!), but you know what I mean :)

    that frittata looks like heaven! yumm:)

    that closet isn't bad. we still have an entire room (that is supposed to be our office) that is packed up and full of boxes. That would be fine, except that we moved to boston 2.5 years ago.

    Wonderful Recipe! Trying it tomorrow for sure! The other night tried diced tomatoes, baby bella mushrooms, monteray jack… chopped up in egg whites, rolled in whole wheat wrap brushed with olive oil (so the wrap doesn't crack!) I LOVE new egg treats!
