Mushroom Frittata

Mushroom Frittata with a video tutorial

This past week was the toughest week that we had in a long time, to say the least. Maybe, because it was a Halloween week. I am very superstitious.

Anyhow, we learn to move on and continue with our lives. One thing that made my day was that I got a beautiful care package from one my follower.

It made me smile and a bit emotional. To even think that sometimes people that you never met in your life could brighten your day, and make it so much better.

My hubs, Nebs is like that. When I am feeling down, he disappears and then brings my favorite treats to chear me up: like creamy pie, a box of chocolates, or my favorite latte, etc. 

Mushroom Frittata

So, before the weekend, my Nebs went to get groceries with the kids and brought home over 10 packs of mushrooms. Different kinds of mushrooms.

I just stood in the kitchen as he was taking out a pack after pack, and I was in shock, thinking what in hell am I going to do with all these mushrooms?

He was like “What? Mushrooms are healthy?”
Don’t get me wrong, I love mushrooms, and if you have not heard before they are really healthy. BUT we are talking about over 10 packs of mushrooms!

Anyhow, I have been making each day something with them, and I think I might freeze a few packs because to be quite frank, even I can get tired of eating them.

One of the dishes that I made was this mushroom frittata. It look so beautiful. I love frittatas. If you did not know a frittata is an Italian version of Omelette. It is so versatile and always comes out delicious, no matter what you are using.

Seriously, if you do not have pancetta, Italian bacon made of pork belly, use hickory smoked bacon or turkey bacon, smoked ham, etc.

If you do not eat pork at all, then maybe you can substitute it with grilled chicken, of coursem or just make it with veggies. See, there are so many variations of making a frittata.

Recipe Notes

Dry herbs are always more powerful, so I double or even triple the amount when I use fresh, You can use cheese on tops such as mozzarella, provolone, pizza cheese combo or even Mexican cheese.

Melting cheeses. It always tastes better with some cheese on top. Keep an eye when it is baking. No need to open up the oven, just turn on the lights and peek through. It should be done between 15 and 18 minutes. It will puff up. I like mine to be deeper golden color rather than pale, so just bake depending how you like it.
