Something New

Dh has decided he wants to eat vegetarian 3 nights a week.  I have no issue with that as I am not a big meat fan to begin with.  However, he doesn’t like veggies much so we went to B&N and chose a decent Vegetarian Cookbook.  In the intro to the book it says that isn’t for people trying to be vegan or vegetarian, but for those of us who may want to incorporate more veggies in our diets.  We liked what we saw so we bought it.

This is the first recipe we tried:

Herb and Feta Frittata

2 tsp Olive Oil

8 Large Eggs

4 oz feta Cheese, crumbled

1/3 c loosely packed fresh parsley or basil, chopped

1/4 cup whole milk

2 Tbs fresh rosemary or thyme, chopped

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  In an oven-safe skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

In medium bowl, beat all ingredients with whisk until blended.  Pour into skillet but do not stir.  Cook until mixture begins to set around edges.

Place skillet in oven and bake until set, 13-15 minutes.  Cut into wedges and serve.

Now you are asking what we thought of it. It smelled awesome as it was baking, but…it was a little too eggy/salty.  I had expected more flavor than just egg and salt.

That isn’t to say we won’t try it again.  We will, but for breakfast and we might add something like ham or sausage and a different cheese to it.  It is more of a breakfast meal and it is very very rich, so you can really only eat a little bit.  You need to have something else with it.  Our plan is for Christmas eve breakfast with biscuits, gravy and sausage.

Stay tuned for our next experiment!

  1. Yum! I love fritatta. 🙂 A Spanish one with potatoes, courgettes and peppers might be more up your street…

    • The book has other Frittata recipes that we are going to try. We did the direct recipe since we really didn’t know what it was and how we would like it. Now that we KNOW we can alter it to our own tastes. This one was good…but it was really rich so you could only eat a little bit. The feta was good but a little overwhelming for us since it was the first time we had ever had feta cheese.

      Dh LOVES omelettes so it is something he would really enjoy if we find the right combo of things to put in it!
