We are all still recovering from Christmas and New Year’s, but the Epiphany is right around the corner. We usually celebrate with tamales, champurrado, and a gorgeous rosca de reyes to share with our friends and family. This year we are taking a more low-key approach to this spiritual celebration. With a simple, but tasty, breakfast featuring a frittata like the one I made today.
Still warm in my pajamas, with a cafecito in hand, I realized that it is Friday and I have not been to the market since before New Year’s Day. With a growling tummy I wanted something quick, easy, and filling. A frittata was the way to go. I gathered some eggs, milk and pulled together any veggies I could find. I quickly chopped and sautéed the veggies. Then I whisked together the eggs and milk. Whisking allows you to incorporate some air in to the eggs, allowing a fluffier frittata and the milk will make it creamier. I finished my frittata by placing it under the broiler for a minute just to melt and slightly brown the cheese. From start to finish, with my coffee, breakfast was served in 20 minutes…and I was back in bed snuggling with Chubby & Porkchop. I love Friday mornings.
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 cups broccoli florets, blanched

1/2 cup skim milk
6 large eggs
salt and pepper to taste
Optional: parmesan cheese, grated
1. Preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
2. Heat the oil in a large oven safe skillet. Begin by sautéing the onions until softened, about 5 minutes.
3. Add the tomatoes and broccoli, sauté 3 minutes.
4. Add spinach. Season to taste.
5. Whisk the eggs briskly and add the milk. Evenly pour over the vegetables. Allow the eggs to cook for 2 minutes, but do not stir to much.
6. Place the skillet in the oven and allow the eggs to set, about 5-10 minutes.
7. Optional: sprinkle the top with grated cheese and place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes until melted and slightly browned.
