Easy Meals- Stirfry Stuffed Frittata

Now that I'm all pregnant, my husband has been taking over some of the work in the kitchen. (Thank you, husband!) Not to brag, but he's a fantastic cook. This week he surprised me with a stir-fry full of vegetables from our slowly deteriorating vegetable garden. (I don't know why but our tomatoes and chard are hanging on by a thread while the Summer zucchini, cucumbers, and peppers are slowly producing less and less.)

We had some leftovers and I got a little creative when I had some extra energy later in the week.... so I made this delicious frittata. It's so simple and I think you will love it. Let's be honest, sometimes the meals of mealprep can get a little boring and a few eggs can go a long way.

Speaking of eggs, they are fantastic for your pregnancy. As much as I'm not a fan of the yolks (they gross me out, nothing to do with calorie-counting), I'm eating them right now. The yolk has Choline, which aids in the development of the brain. Plus, they're full of protein.

Here's what you'll need when transforming leftovers into a new and fabulous meal:

High smoke oil (coconut, avocado, butter, or grapeseed oil)

Leftover veggies! (Our sautee included chard, tomatoes, garlic, onion, and zucchini. You can totally toss in additional veggies like peppers, spinach, squash, eggplant, etc)

8 large brown eggs

Splash of milk, salt/pepper to taste

Sliced cheddar cheese

Dried herbs (basil, oregano, marjoram, thyme, whatever you got!)

Heat a large cast iron skillet until hot, heat your oven to 400 degrees

Toss in your veggies and cook until warm and soft

Spread evenly throughout pan

In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, a splash of milk, salt pepper

Pour egg mixture over skillet

Allow to cook over low-medium heat until egg mixture is frim and starting to bubble

Place sliced cheese in layers on top of eggs

Toss in oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until golden brown

Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and serve

*The altitude here makes everything take longer... and every oven is different. Occasionally your eggs might get a little puffy, and if that bothers you, you can poke it with a fork to prevent the eggs from rising.*

(Yup, totally meant to take a picture of it out of the oven... but it got devoured before I could do so.... )
