Mushroom Frittata

I love Saturday mornings. I love the fact that I can make dishes and try out new things. Most of all I enjoy the ones I’ve already created. A mushroom frittata loaded with Parmesan cheese and mushrooms – what can I say! I love mushrooms, eggs, Parmesan cheese – need I say more? An excellent 5-ingredient combo that can be used for all meal times in the day – breakfast, lunch, brunch or a light dinner.

Mushroom Frittata_1

  • ½ pint of mushrooms – any kind you like – in this one I used ¼ baby portabellas and ¼ button mushrooms – wiped off and sliced. You can certainly add more mushrooms if you want.
  • 1 carton of Egg Beaters (I used this because I found that with Egg Beaters, the frittata is fluffier. Not only that, there is no cholesterol and fat in Egg Beaters and I can eat this at anytime and often.
  • ½ cup of freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 teaspoon fresh Thyme – removed from the stems and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

In a 10” sauté pan, heat up the olive oil over medium high heat and add the sliced mushrooms. Add about 1 teaspoon of salt and let the mushrooms cook until the desired consistency. I like my mushrooms cook thoroughly but still has a bite to it.

Add the carton of egg beaters to the mushroom mixture. Add the parmesan cheese and leave a little bit for a final sprinkling after taking the frittata out of the oven. Add the thyme and just lightly mix the cheese and thyme into the egg beaters. Try not to stir the mushrooms around; you will want to leave them on the bottom of the egg mixture. Cover the pan with lid for about 3 to 4 minutes. The eggs will cook. Remove from the heat and sprinkle the reserved Parmesan cheese and put in the broiler for about 2 to 3 minutes so the top is brown and the cheese is melted. Yum!

Remove the frittata from the broiler and slide the frittata onto a cutting board and slice half and then half again. Serve this with crusty whole grain bread and butter with a cup of freshly perked coffee or tea. I love Saturday mornings.
