Can do it all. And modest to boot.

The only cleaning I like…

Is cleaning out the fridge.  I am going out of town on Thursday and will be gone for almost 3 weeks, so I obviously can’t leave a lot of food in the fridge to rot.  A lot people like to make sandwiches, or random casseroles, but I can only think of one thing when it comes to left overs….Frittata!  Frittatas are the greatest thing on the planet, you just take whatever you have in the fridge, throw it in a pan and add eggs.  This week I had all some GREAT stuff to use, so I was excited.  I used leeks,  chicken, dill, parmesan, garlic, and brie.

In the name of being somewhat healthy, rather than using 8 full eggs, I used 4 full eggs and 4 egg whites.  I just put them in a bowl and mixed them with a fork to break them up.  Throw in a couple of splashes of milk to help them stay light and fluffy.  Then I just threw in what I had…some salt and pepper, the dill, and shredded parmesan cheese.  While all that was going on, I cleaned the leeks and sauteed them with the garlic and some olive oil until they were tender.  Then I threw in the cooked chicken just to heat it up.  When that was done, I left everthing in the pan, and threw in some butter to coat the entire pan.  The just pour the egg mixture over it and cook it over medium heat until it is set on the bottom and edges.  Once the eggs were set, I took the brie(cut into medium pieces) and just dropped it on top of the eggs. Then I put the pan into a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes until it was completely set.    DELICIOUS.  The good thing about frittata is you can put in whatever the hell you want, and it is ALWAYS good.

Now, apparently I didn’t take my own advice and fully coat the pan with butter, because I had a little trouble getting it out of the pan…

Hideous...but delicious

Hideous...but delicious

Lets face it…presentation has never been my forte, but who cares, as long as it is delicious.

Happy Frittata-ing!
