Very easy recipe. It’s good for cleaning out the fridge. Pretty much anything goes in this one.

6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cooked meat (bacon, sausage, chicken, salmon, ham, shrimp, chorizo*)
1 cup sauted veggies (mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, broccoli, spinach)
2 tablespoons fresh herbs (basil, oregano, dill, cilantro, parsley)
1 cup cheese (cheddar, jack, mozzarella, swiss, feta)
other (salsa, sour cream, hot sauce)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9×9 baking dish or oven safe 12″ skillet. Mix together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour into dish/skillet. All meat should be cooked, leftovers are great in this, and all veggies should be sauted so they are at least partally cooked since the cooking time for the eggs isn’t long enough to cook anything else in the mixture. Layer into the eggs the meat/veggies/herbs and cheese you want to add into the fritatta. Press ingredients into the eggs. Bake 15-18 minutes or until the center is almost cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes and turn out of dish/skillet onto a cutting board and slice. Top with sour cream and maybe some fresh herbs or salsa.

Good combos:
~smoked salmon, spinach, jack cheese and dill
~sausage, peppers, mushrooms, onions, mozzarella cheese and oregano
~ham, broccoli, mushrooms, swiss cheese and parsley
~chorizo*, jack cheese, peppers, onions, tomatoes, salsa and cilantro
~shrimp, tomatoes, onions, feta cheese and basil
~chicken, tomatoes, spinach, cheddar cheese, basil, oregano and parsley
~peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, cheddar and jack cheese, parsley

*chorizo is a mexican sausage. I would recommend that you get the raw kind, squeeze a little out of the tube and cook in a separate skillet. It does fall apart some, not like regular pork sausage. Don’t drain the grease off and you might want to whisk it into the eggs before you put them in the dish to be baked.
