I Just Love Frittatas

There are many different recipes for a frittata. This is how I made my most recent one (pictured)
1. Saute 1/4 onion, finely diced,  in iron skillet. Turn heat off after onions are transparent.
2. Have some chopped up cooked greens ready. I used kale this time...a big bunch was reduced, through cooking and fine chopping and squeezing the moisture out...into 1 cup packed chopped greens.
3. Have about 2 cups of brown rice, cooked (leftovers are great) ready to go...or more.
4. Have some grated cheese ready to go.
5. Break 7 or 8 eggs into a bowl and whisk until all blended and frothy.
6. Add the rice, chopped greens, cooked onion and about a handful of shredded cheese and stir until well combined.

The skillet should be refreshed with a teaspoon or 2 of oil, and heated for 30 seconds and then you add the egg mixture. The heat should be turned to low...very low..and you should sprinkle grated cheese on top. Then put a lid on and let cook nice and slow for about 20 minutes or until egg is set. Bring skillet to table and cut frittata into wedges and serve. We like Tapa Tio on it.
