From the Dollar Saver ezine: A Custom Meal
Looking to use up extra veggies, bits of meat or other leftovers in the fridge? A frittata (sort of like an omelet, but easier because there's no flipping) is a cheap, easy dinner that can utilize a lot of the stuff you might otherwise throw away.
To make one, use about three eggs per person. Crack into a bowl and beat with salt and pepper. Then, add in your filling, using what's in the fridge. Cold cuts can be sliced and added in. Cooked vegetables can also go right in. Firm fresh produce (carrots, broccoli, even mushrooms) should be sauteed until
While this is going on, turn the broiler on low. Heat eggs on stovetop until they start setting. Then, grate some cheese over top. (Use what you've got. Cheddar is really good with broccoli; Italian cheese like Parmesan is delicious with ham and/or mushroom.) Turn off the stovetop and put under broiler until eggs are set and cheese is melted. Cool briefly, slice and serve.
You've just made good use of food that might otherwise get tossed, and you have a delicious dinner.
