Clean-Out-the-Fridge Veggie Frittata

  • SERVES: 8
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

A truly eggcelent use-what-you-have dish.

Spring cleaning, but make it a frittata! You can use whatever leftover veggies you have in the fridge to make this easy go-to recipe, but ours features springy veg like mushrooms, scallions, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and dill plus a secret ingredient (cottage cheese!) stirred into the eggs to make them extra creamy. It bakes up with cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you have on hand) in Chrissy's Fave Stainless Steel Skillet which goes effortlessly from stovetop to oven and cleans up even more easily thanks to its nontoxic nonstick coating. The best part is you can eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, literally any time!
