Less Egg Frittata

Recently I have been trying to eat more eggs. I have been doing more strength training (I can almost do a pull-up!) and have been looking for different ways to up my protein. I eat a lot of beans and tofu but, well, that can get quite boring. Eggs seem like a versatile source of protein but I have never been big on them. Their smell, their wobbly goobly consistency... I've just never been a fan.

In any case I found this recipe for a frittata that seemed like it might be a gateway egg dish. And it was great! I had never made a frittata before so I used a pan that was way too big and had to smoosh all of it to the side to cook, but it still tasted fantastic. For my veggies I used green beans, edamame, corn, spinach, and potatoes. I cooked the potatoes a bit before adding them to make sure they got cooked all of the way through. I also added goat cheese and Sunny Paris which is my current favorite penzeys spice.

I ended up cooking it for more like 13 minutes just because I wanted to make sure there was no wobbly gooblyness, but for those of you more comfortable with egginess I am sure the 10 recommended minutes would be fine. 
Not wobbly goobly!

Do you all have any good egg dishes I should try? I made a mayo free egg salad sandwich the other day and did NOT enjoy it. What is your favorite way to have eggs?

  1. Yum, that does look good, we must be channeling each other because I too have been trying to eat more eggs. Really, when you think about it, 3 dollars for a dozen free range (and I know that sometimes that doesn't mean there is a difference, but I like to believe that chickens are happy until Daniel lets me have a few of my own)is pretty cheap. I have been scrambling mine, I do not like them liquidy, so I am sure that I over cook them by some people's standards, but I enjoy eating them. I am also going to try hard-boiling (just eat white part, as I hate the yellow). Also, I have a really awesome recipe that I am going to post shortly about how to make strips of egg for your sushi. Egg salad=blech!
