Enjoying These Eggs “Two Days! Two Ways!” My Egg Frittata Recipe!

Eggs Two Days! Two Ways!

I made my wife Alex some baked eggs for breakfast one Saturday, and she asked me what I was going to do with the rest of the eggs in the carton…which is how we came up with the concept I am sharing with you now:

Day one was a baked egg dish, and on day two, I wanted to utilize some leftover steak, along with those eggs and the usual suspects: fresh garlic, spinach, spices – the goal was to make a nice “egg cake” – a golden brown Frittata…

Let’s get cooking!

As I said, I had some leftover smoked skirt steak, which I decided to dice up and add to this recipe, but you can use sausage, bacon, or no meat at all if you choose!

Once I assembled my ingredients it was time to start putting them all together. I started with chopped garlic in olive oil, with a nice sprinkling of flaked Maldon Sea Salt and pepper.

I give them five minutes or so to get to know the oil before I add anything else.

Measure Based On Your Taste Buds!

“Teaspoons, tablespoons, how much do I use?”

You aren’t going to an answer here…use what and how much you like!

I added smoked paprika, thyme and oregano to the garlic, then I added my chopped spinach – I choppedit up so that it mixes in throughout the dish a bit better than the whole leaves do when they cook…

After I added the spinach, I threw in the leftover meat – I kept it in nice sized chunks rather than dice it too fine – but that’s a personal preference…I could also have shaved it as well.

You could bake it like this and let those egg yolks pop up in some of the slices afterwards, but I chose to mix them all together instead…

I cooked it on the stove this way for five minutes or so, allowing the bottom to firm up before baking.

Then i was time to put the entire thing in the oven to finish, and since I’m a fan of cherry tomatoes, I cut those in half and sprinkled them across the top – you can do the same with larger sliced tomatoes as well…and because I was doing the “Whole 30” program, I couldn’t add cheese, but this all but cries out for parmesan or mozzarella cheese to be sprinkled on top as well…

I baked the “Egg pie” for around 12-15 minutes…I shake the pan every few minutes to see if the middle of the dish has set…those eggs let you know when they are still runny…

Once you take it out of the oven, you can “flip” it onto a plate and it will look like a potato cake, like this, but here is what it looks like right out of the oven as well, ready to slice and eat. I used the fresh parsley as a garnish on top…

I got Alex’s seal of approval on it, and just as she posted the first effort on Instagram, so too did she share the Frittata:

So there you go: eggs two ways, two days…I love eggs, and also love to cook, and both of these dishes also make a great dinner, just served with a nice salad…

Yes, some call this a “toad in a hole” but whatever you call it, Cher loved it and you can see the recipe here:

  1. It has been way too long since I had a good frittata. My mouth is watering.

    • I hadn’t made one in a while, but my wife prompted me to make two different egg dishes because a friend gave us a fresh dozen from his farm! And no, we don’t live anywhere near the country!

  2. I love that this post is so delicious and combats food waste! Great stuff!

  3. Absolutely yummy! I enjoy eating eggs cooked any way.

  4. Oooh, yum! These recipes look so good! I’m so picky about eggs but I’ll have to try these someday.

    Your eggs look great, both ways, but it was a shame you weren’t allowed any cheese! And with all that garlic, there was no danger of a visit from a vampire either. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Pete, as you pointed out in your post today, you aren’t a big fan of food pics, so thanks for commenting and for the link! I am now safely back on cheese, and let’s be honest, it MAKES this dish! As for the garlic, I use far more than ANY recipe calls for and that makes it even better!
