Cooking Success

All of our kids are fairly good sports about trying new meals, but it's somewhat rare to find a dish that's easy to make and gets nods of approval from everyone.

I posted in my Homeschool Mom Journal last weekend that Spinach Potato Frittata had made it on our meal plan for the week. I'm happy to report that it was a roaring success last night. I give it three thumbs up -- one for taste, one for ease of preparation, and one for easy clean-up.

Yay for a meal that everyone enjoyed! They all agreed that it was worth having again.

My original recipe is copyright, but I can share basics for cooks that prefer not to follow directions anyway. I mixed 6 egg whites and 3 whole eggs in a bowl. I added salt, pepper, some diced Canadian bacon (about 3-4 small slices), about a cup and a half of frozen diced hash brown potatoes, and a small package of frozen spinach (thawed, drained, and squeezed dry). In a large oven-proof skillet, I sauteed a chopped onion until it was soft. Then I added the egg/potato mixture and cooked on medium until it started to look set. Don't stir. I finished by cooking it in the oven for about 5 minutes at 400*, until it was fully set. The cheese could either be mixed into the egg mixture, sprinkled on top before baking, or added to the individual servings at the table. I served it to our family of five with a loaf of homemade bread on the side, and there was only a bite or two left over.
