    Leftovers - Don't throw them out - Make a Frittata

    I have posted Frittata before but made one this morning
    and thought I should remind people how quick and easy it is
    Put it your Waste not Want not category
    I had some leftover vege,
    I have a guest and like to offer him nourishing food for breakfast
    In fact there was enough for 4 breakfasts, accompanied by some Crispy Vogels Toast
    Freezing some of it for another day

    I do love to add potato, must be fried though... for the wonderful flavour
    Grab some eggs from the fridge
    I used 3 Cherry tomatoes
    The leftover leeks and peas
    A handful of grated cheese

    To make enough for 4 breakfasts
    3 medium potatoes peeled and chunked
    A cup of cooked of vege
    3 Cherry tomatoes cut in half, push the seeds out and slice
    5 eggs beaten
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup grated tasty cheese
    3-4 tablespoons of Olive oil 

    Heat oven to 180C
    Pre cook the potatoes
    Easiest way
    3 minutes in the microwave

    In an ovenproof skillet over medium heat
    Add olive oil
    throw in the potatoes
    Let them cook till a nice crust forms
    Season with a little S & P
    In a bowl add eggs
    Beat and season with S & P
    Add cooked vege, tomatoes and grated cheese
    Pour egg mix into the potatoes
    Get the omelet started a little on the stove
    Into the oven approx 8 minutes
    Cool a little
