A Skinny Fritatta



I have gone for something simple tonight! Eggs it is. Well, 4 to be precise! Enough for the 2 of us tonight and some lunch tomorrow.

I stir fried red onion, red pepper and courgette in a little oil. I added 4 eggs, whisked up with 1 tablespoon of pesto and some freshly ground salt and pepper and poured it over the veg. I let it cook until set and then cut it into slices, served with salad leaves drizzled with a mustard, balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing. Mmmh! Oh and me being me, I sliced some mozzarella on top, for some melting gooeyness!

If I am honest, I should have let the dish cool down before serving it. I never really like quiche hot, so I should have remembered that. I still enjoyed it, but I will remember for next time! Graham wasn't estatic, as he is not an eggy person. He did finish his serving, but declined it for lunch tomorrow.

Oh well, maybe just one egg for me next time! And maybe I should go skinny and leave out the mozzarella and egg yolks next time. I do have a wedding coming up!

  2. Mike would enjoy this one as he is a fritatta fanatic. Whenever we go this this great little deli that has the most wonderful sandwiches he gets the fritatta! They serve theirs with a greek salad.

  3. Aren't eggs wonderful. When I can't decide what to cook eggs always come to the rescue in one form or another.

  4. Hi Kelopatra, Being allergic eggs must cut out a lot of foodstuffs for you. I bet you are creative though!

    Hello Winedeb, The wedding is in October and is coming up, way too fast!

    Hi Beccy, I quite often turn to them, when I am on my own, but Graham isn't keen, so we don't have eggs often!

  5. This looks really good! My husband doesn't like eggs so we take advantage of nights he's not home to make all our favorite egg dishes - often fritattas.
