On election night, I wasn’t feeling like going all out for dinner. I knew we had some eggs to use up, as well as zucchini and a few other items. So I made a hodge podge meal. I love fritattas, so I figured, why not?
First I sautéed the leftover zucchini with some frozen Southern potatoes and fresh spinach in a little bit of olive oil. While that was going, I whisked together four eggs with 1/4 cup of skim milk. I poured the eggs into my pan, then covered it for seven minutes to cook. After the eggs were cooked through, I sprinkled a little bit of cheese to melt.
I meant to add some deli sliced chicken and mushrooms, but I forgot. The original recipe I used called for zucchini and cubed ham with onion. So basically you can make this any way you want with anything you have on hand.
I served up the wedges with a small salad and some easy pumpkin muffins I made while I was waiting for things to cool. (So easy–1 box of spice cake mix and 1 can of pumpkin, add some water to help the mix and some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice. Bake in muffin cups at 350 for 15 minutes.)
A simple, healthful meal!
