Mini Frittatas - Part B

I've gone a little crazy with these frittatas. They're so easy to work with. You can use any combination of meats, veggies, cheeses, and herbs that you like. I would avoid foods that have a lot of liquid in them, such as tomato seeds though. Here's three meals that I made with my leftover eggs. See my post Mini Frittatas - A for the original recipe.


Mini Frittatas - cut into quarters
Tortillas - warmed
Cheese (I used sliced provolone and a grated cheese blend)

Heat a little butter in a pan. Add the egg chunks to the pan and cook just until they are heated through. Remove the eggs form the pan. Loosely cover the frittatas and set them aside.

Heat your salsa up in the pan that the eggs were in. Once it's hot, add spinach to the pan. Toss the spinach around to evenly coat it with salsa. Then, turn off the heat.

Lay a tortilla down on a flat surface. Top with provolone, spinach mixture, and eggs. Then sprinkle a little cheese on top and roll it up. If you're going to eat the tacos latter, wrap them in foil. If not, place them on a plate and keep rolling until you're out of stuffs to stuff.

Frittata Foo Young

I had some leftover egg mixture that I had not cooked yet. Instead of cooking it in a muffin tin, I just baked it in a pie pan until it set.

Vegetable or Chicken Stock (I made a quick stock using the bones from a rotisserie chicken)
White Wine (optional)
Green Onions - thinly sliced
Corn Starch
Dark Soy Sauce - chilled
Chicken - shredded or diced (I used meat from a rotisserie chicken)
Egg Mixture - cooked
Rice - cooked

In a pot, heat stock (about 2 cups) and then add a 1/4 cup of wine and your green onions.

In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and soy sauce together.

When the stock is boiling, stir the soy sauce slurry into it. Cook for another 30 seconds and then remove the sauce from the heat. Then, add the chicken to the pan and stir.

Place a slice of baked egg on a plate. Top it with rice. Spoon chicken onto the plate with your desired amount of sauce. Top with green onion slices and serve.

Bean sprouts would also be great in this dish. I just didn't have any on hand.

"Egg" Rolls

Egg Roll Wrappers
Mini Fritattas - cut into small pieces
Cream Cheese
Small bowl of water
Oil for Frying

Heat oil in a pan.

Place a wrapper on a flat surface. Cut it in half diagonally.

Put one piece of egg on a corner of each half of the wrap.

Top the egg with dab of cream cheese.

Dip your finger into the water and then run it along the edges of the wrapper. This will act as glue to keep your roll together.

Then, roll the wrapper around the egg.

Once the eggs are nice and tightly rolled up, cook them in the oil. Don't overcrowd the pan, cook them in batches if you have to.

Serve with you favorite dip. I ate these little egg rolls with spicy brown mustard and it was tasty!
