leftovers again??

Tonight's dinner was so easy, delicious, and I had everything I needed for it in my fridge! Allison made a version of a frittata this last night, and it sparked my interest. I had heard the word "frittata" before, but never really knew that it was. Well, it turns out it's basically an omelet that you throw just about anything into. You cook the bottom of it on the stove for a few minutes, and then pop it in the oven to broil the top for a few more minutes.

I made my frittata out of the leftovers from last night's dinner - Meatballs with cream of mushroom soup and egg noodles (another easy and yummy recipe).
The ingredients to my frittata were:
3 eggs, scrambled
a splash of milk
chopped red onions
chopped parsley
chopped up leftover meatballs and egg noodles
mozzarella cheese
salt & pepper


The finished product!

I'm going to make this more often. I hate wasting leftovers, and this is a great way to use them up without feeling like you're having the same thing for dinner two nights in a row. Thanks for the great idea, AllyRD!

Happy (almost) Friday Everyone!

  3. I love this idea. Mike & I love quiche but a frittata seems so much easier to make! This is a great way to turn a small portion of leftovers into an entire meal!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
