Frittata’s are great any time of day. This one was part of a quick dinner I threw together on a night when cooking a big meal wasn’t an option.  The cheese in this is a Tomme de Nena from Kenny’s Farmhouse Cheese in Barren Cty, Ky. A group of us food bloggers took a tour of his facility recently and got to taste some of the best cheeses I’ve ever had. Check out Lindsay’s summary of our field trip over at Love and Olive Oil. This tomme de nena is a relatively soft creamy cheese with a great flavor that melts easily. If you can’t find it, you can substitute a Gruyere -but it won’t be the same so go ahead an order it from Kenny’s.

Alot of people won’t admit it but I will: I love my microwave. In fact on days when when time (or energy) are in short supply, my microwave is my BFF.  This frittata comes together relatively quickly because I used the microwave to cook the bacon and soften the potatoes. It took about 6 minutes to get them both done. If you don’t have time to slice a potato (which took about 45 seconds), a great cheat is to use Ore Ida O’Brien Potatoes. Thaw them in the microwave for about 1 minute.  Use what ever meats you have on hand: left over ham, turkey, or chicken would all be good.

Add potatoes and peas to hot skillet.

Add diced bacon or whatever meat you choose.

Add beaten eggs to skillet.

 

Cover top with shredded cheese.

    possible to adjust to the sudden change…

    in diet patterns. it should be done gradually. small changes are suggested but the same should be followed with persistency and consistency. the amount of weight that you wish to lose after pregnancy would entirely depend on the kind of weight…

    As a business owner, it’s to be my most unflavored job interviewee. chaos of crickets. Most phishing emails are pretty poorly made.
