Pizza Fritatta

As you may have guessed by now, turning leftovers into some type of breakfast egg dish is something I like to do on occasion – how’s that for understatement?

After the pizza supper, this pile of toppings was left on the cutting board, which got bagged up for the next day.

Of course I had to chop up some onion and then cut up the remaining fried eggplant to add to the pile of leftovers for a quick sauté.

My first thought was to make an omelet, but I thought I had too much for a single two egg omelet and next considered a scramble, but settled on a pan cooked frittata (2nd one in a week).  When the stuffing was ready, I poured on a couple of eggs beaten with a little cream, added a lid, and reduced the heat to low.

When the eggs were set, I added some crumbled feta, replaced the lid, and turned off the heat for a few minutes for the cheese to warm up.  Then I slid it onto the plate and enjoyed it very much.

The one thing I forgot was some fresh oregano – oh well.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. My grandmother would love this recepie;) But diffrerent reason than myself.She would love the idea you are not throwing away good food and I am loving idea that u used it to make something tasty:)) No worries it all stays in teh Family;)

  2. Mmmmm...tasty! There is such an abundance of fresh veggies on hand right now. This is a great way to use them up!

  3. Looks yummy! I'm the same way Larry - it kills me to throw food away! That fritatta sounds like a delicious way to "dispose" of them.

  4. I agree Oregano would be good. I'm famous for forgetting items, ingredients and sometimes side dishes left in the microwave. At the cabin I made a BLT that ended up being a BT. The L had even been rinsed and sitting in the colander.

    This looks like a mighty fine breakfast Larry.

  5. I don't think I could ever get sick of egg dishes. A pizza frittata sounds great!

  6. Looks delicious! I love everything you added, may I have a slice? LOL!!!

    I just bought some farm fresh eggs and made a frittata today!

  7. Your breakfasts are always amazing - this one looks fantastic Larry!

  8. That's it, I'm leaving now to go make breakfast. I have had shredded potatoes pressed to dry for the last 30 minutes for hash browns and I'm starving. This fritatta is the breaking point, lol.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
