Labor Day Fritatta

It’s Labor Day, which for many of us here in the States means catching up on chores, drinking beer in the afternoon and grilling up some burgers and hot dogs.  And while I’ll get to all of that later, I like to start holidays with a nice breakfast treat.  As a Labor Day bbq side note, there are gluten free beers out there if you’re craving one, but Shani likes a cider or some sweet white wine instead these days.

Ingredients used:

  • 4 slices cooked Trader Joe’s Pepper Turkey Bacon
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 cup diced Crimini Mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cup thawed Trader Joe’s chopped spinach
  • 5 Eggs whisked
  • 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Simply Fat free Sour Cream
  • Johnny’s Seasoning to taste
  • 1/3 cup Quattro Formaggio
  • 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s Crumbled Feta with Mediterranean Herbs
  • Trader Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray

A Little Work, Awesome ResultsFritatta

While this fritatta is a little more work than just frying some eggs, it sure is nice to start the day with a special breakfast.  A lot of times, I’ll also take some of the sweet white wine we have in the fridge and add some berries for a fun ‘brunch’ style breakfast.  We are celebrating not working on a Monday after all!

 

Getting Started

Take a pie tin (glass in my case) and spray it with Trader Joe’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray to keep it from sticking.  In a heated pan, saute the the red onion and the mushrooms until the mushrooms are soft and the onion has softened and gotten a little brown, I season these with some Johnny’s too (I spray them with the olive oil spray as well).  Add the diced bacon and spinach to the pan and heat for a minute or two

Mix the Eggs

FritattaCrack the eggs into a bowl, and add a little Johnny’s.  Add the sour cream, and the two cheeses and stir some more.  The mushrooms and onion should be done by now.  Add all of this to the eggs in the bowl and mix together well.

Transfer everything from the bowl to the glass pie tin and cook for 15 or so minutes at 400 in the toaster oven.

Use a toothpick to test, if it comes out clean, it should be done.  I will leave my fritatta in the oven for bit after I know it’s done as I like a little brown on the edges of the fritatta. Enjoy!
