Instructions

  1. Preheat the over to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a skillet or a saute pan add 1-2 teaspoon of olive oil and saute sliced shallots, minced garlic, chopped scallions, diced peppers, and tomato.
  3. Cook for about one minute, stirring frequently, then add chopped spinach, if the spinach is frozen: Place in a colander or strainer, run cool water over the vegetables until thawed, and drain (squeeze water from spinach). Or place the package in a resealable plastic bag, and submerge in cold water until thawed. Add spinach to the skillet or a saute pan and cook for a minute or so.
  4. Add about 2 tablespoons of milk and stir. Any milk on hand.
  5. Add seasoning; Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste, and a teaspoon of dried parsley.

Add a pinch of salt because you will not need more than that, and 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Mix everything well to combine.
  8. Now, pour the egg mixture over the veggies leaving just enough room for frittata to rise so do not our eggs all the way to the edge (leave about 1/4 of an inch/ 0.6 cm).
  9. Using a form mix eggs and veggies just a bit to combine.
  10. Add a good sprinkle of shredded cheese on the top and bake for about 25 minutes.
  11. Allow it to cool down for about 2-3 minutes before pulling frittatas out of the cups. You may use a butter knife to go around the cup to separate the frittata from the pan just in case

I just love getting in the kitchen and making my own food. However, my wish is to start growing it again.

Well, to be quite frank with you, I do not have the greenest thump out there, but I can learn.

Root Vegetable Sheet Pan

Once upon a time, I had the most amazing green peppers. Also, I grew funny looking cucumbers and sweetest tomatoes as well as fragrant herbs, which I still grow.

Which brings to me to this thought, if I actually dedicate my time, give more love, attention, and water regularly, there is still hope for me.

I am looking for that patch of heaven where I can build my little cabin and grow the best looking produce.

Oh, and feed my chickens. There is a small farmer hiding inside of me, I just know it!

Root Vegetable Sheet Pan

Anyhow, when it comes to one sheet food I am going to suggest that you try to keep all the vegetables in on level.

The second thing is to try adding vegetables that at the same texture unless you want mushy cherry tomatoes which is totally delciosu especially if you add some garlic in the oil as well.

There are so many amazing root vegetables that you could totally mix and match. Hey, if you do not have radishes, use parsnip or more potatoes or different types of potatoes.

Perhaps Jerusalem artichokes, bump onions, whole garlic head cut in half or Fennel, which is a flowering plant but in the carrot family.

With that being said, if you never made this combo before, you would be pleasantly surprised how tasty this is.

Simple and easy recipe for amazingly delicious Potato and Beef Everything Bagel Croquettes

Ingredients

Mashed Potatoes

  • 1 box Our Family mashed potato, read the instruction on the box; Water, butter, salt, and milk
  • 1 large egg, optional

Ground Beef

  • 1 tablespoon oil + for frying
  • 1//2 pound ground beef, 20/80
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

Assembly

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup plain breadcrumbs, more if needed
  • 2.5 oz Our Family Everything bagel seasoning

Instructions

    1. Follow instruction on the back of the mashed potato box.
      You would need 4-6 servings, depending on how many serving you are planning to
      make. 2 patties are enough per person. You can make 15-16 equal-sized
      croquettes.
    2. Heat a skillet with oil and sauté on the medium-high heat.
      Cook until the meat is completely cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Keep stirring
      and breaking the meat into small chunks. If you have any leftover grease,
      please drain it out before mixing it with the mashed potatoes. You may add one
      egg in the mixture, but it is not necessary.
    3. Wait for a few minutes until the meat is a bit cooled then
      add to the mashed potato bowl. Using a wooden spoon or similar mix together
      very well the mixture. Taste and see if it needs any more salt or pepper. If
      the mixture is too warm to work with refrigerating for 20 minutes and then make
      croquettes.
    4. Make patties between 2 oz to 3 oz. You may use the scale to
      measure. Not necessary, but sometimes handy if you wish your croquettes to be
      the same size. You may also make bite-size croquettes as shown on the pictures.
      They are about the size of a golf ball.
    5. Make patties and place on the tray lined up with parchment
      or wax paper. Cover with it as well and place the tray in the fridge for 30
      minutes so the croquettes could chill. You may prep them overnight as well.
    6. After chilling, place three plates; flour, mixed eggs,
      breadcrumbs with everything bagel seasoning.
    7. Drench into the flour on both sides as well as around, dip
      in the egg mixture then into breadcrumbs mixed with everything bagel; set aside
      and back on the tray. Continue until everything is complete.
    8. Now, you may place it back to the fridge if you do not plan
      to fry these right away or just heat the oil and fry.
    9. Line paper towel on the plate or cookie rack.
    10. Heat about 1 cup of oil for frying.
    11. Never over crowed the frying skillet. Fry 3 or 4 croquettes
      at the time at medium-high heat. Fry for a minute then flip and fry again until
      you reach a deep golden color.
    12. Take out and set on the lined up kitchen paper towel.



Notes

You may make these meatless and use mushrooms or just
chives to create an amazing appetizer.

I tried these with egg and without it. I like it both ways. Adding one egg makes it somewhat more creamy on the inside. It is really not neccecery but you may use it if you would like to test it yourself.

These hold well in the lunch boxes for school or work.

Our Family Everything bagel seasoning contain sodium so please be aware of that before adding too much salt into your croquettes.
