Easy (and delicious) Winter Frittata

Well first of all if you are a regular reader of this blog you can see by the picture at an earlier post this week that I have not gone grocery shopping...it's mostly the same ingredients pictured. But it's how you use and interchange the ingredients that makes things interesting, I suppose.

At any rate, I came home somewhat late for dinner this evening and was famished. I also ate poorly at lunch today so I wanted to make something that was healthy and filling, but also quick. After checking the meager ingredients in my fridge I decided on a frittata. I always enjoy an egg dishes for dinner, and this one was loaded with vegetables. Simple and quick...and man did it hit the spot. Anyhow,this is how I did it.

Preheat your oven to 350F, then chop the broccoli and cauliflower and microwave the potato until it is "just cooked" (yes, I actually own a microwave...a small one; I use it rarely, mostly for reheats, and I just purchased it--my first one--last year). Then saute everything in olive oil until it begins to brown.

Add a a couple eggs that have been mixed with a few tablespoons of milk (and sea salt, cracked black pepper, and whatever other seasonings you'd like). Lay a few slices of cheese across the top and transfer it to the oven.

If your oven is sufficiently preheated it will only take the frittata about 5 minutes to cook. It was delicious. The pictured frittata, along with a perfectly ripe pear, and a glass of wine...I am one happy and content individual right now.
