BREAKFAST SERIES - POST #3: TODAYS’ POOR PEOPLE (SECRET INGREDIENT) FRITTATA. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE? THE MORE OFTEN - THE MERRIER!
I never get enough of frittatas, especially if they come with crostini’s and fresh fruits. They are also one of the easiest and nice looking breakfast to make. Today, I used an old school, comfort food ingredient, Spam. SERIOUSLY? YEP! Don’t have time now? No worries, plan to make it over the weekend to reward yourself and your family, they will love you even more.
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 15 to 20 minutes
Approximate Cost: $11.05 or $2.76 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
Servings: 4 large pieces or 8 smaller portions (smile)
5 to 6 large Eggs (.80)
¼ cup milk or cream (.35)
1 ½ tsp. Adobo (.15)
2 tbsp. dried onions (.30)
10 baby new potatoes (cooked, and diced or cubed small) ($1.25)
½ of a 7-oz. can of Spam dice in miniature piece ($1.00)
1 ½ cup of Mexican Four Cheeses blend ($2.25)
3 tbsp. unsalted butter stick (.45)
Assorted fruits, strawberries and blueberries ($2.75)
French bread (1.75)
Wash, dice and cook the potatoes in a saucepan until tender.
Dice the Spam and cook in med low in a non-stick skillet until brown. Drain any fat and set aside.
In large bowl, add eggs, milk, Adobo, dried onions and whisk until all ingredients are mixed, then add the cheese and stir to mix.
In the non-stick skillet where you brown the Spam, add ½ tbsp. of unsalted butter until it melts, then pour the egg mixture. Cover and cook for about 10 to 12 minutes in low heat until the frittata top is set and cooked. I have a frittata skillet so is easier to flip it without risks to drop it, smile.
Prepare your crostini bread with the unsalted butter leftover (you don’t need that much salt anyway, the Spam and Adobo made your quota, ha, ha, ha).
NOTE: You can sprinkle extra cheese on top of each frittata when serving.
