Baked Frittatas with crisper lurking veggies

Frittata-whole-web

Got some veggies in the crisper that need to be used fairly quickly? Throw them in a bowl with some eggs and cheese and bake yourself up a frittata.  Frittata’s are great for lunch or dinner, lovely on a picnic and regularly make their way into my girls lunch boxes particularly in the cooler months where keeping them cold is not such an issue.

Traditionally you are supposed to start a frittata on the cook top and then put them in the oven but I don’t have a pan that goes from stove to oven that will fit or won’t melt (must sort that out one day) so I usually use a lasagne dish, line a lamington tin with baking paper or use silicon muffin moulds instead (these are great for lunch boxes).

Taste.com have a great selection of frittata recipes but one I often make is this one, if you have a Thermomix it would be great to use for this – I will weigh out the ingredients soon and update this post with the recipe but in the meantime try the one below but before we get there just a quick word on a rather special frittata I made for a “Ladies Lunch” – Caramelised eschalot, thyme and buffalo mozzarella – divine, click here for my post on that and where I found the recipe.
