Mushroom and Broccoli Frittata

Last Thursday I got off my lazy butt and actually cooked something from scratch! Voila what came out of it is an extremely simple frittata that is both delicious and easy to make.


3/4 cup bella mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1 cup ricotta cheese
4 eggs

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

I used steamables broccoli and put that in the microwave first. Then I diced the mushrooms cuz I like them in small pieces. I mixed the eggs and the ricotta cheese first, then added in the mushrooms. After the broccoli finished in the microwave I chopped it up really quick and added that to the batter as well.

Afterwards use a 9 inch pie tin and spray the surface with cooking spray or brush some cooking oil on it (which I did). Pour the mixture into the pie tin and then put inside the oven.

Let it stay in there for about 20-30 mins (I actually left mine for about 35 mins).

Afterwards let it cool for another 15-20 mins before serving.

This was such an easy meal to make it amazed even me! The combinations you can use is also endless. In the future I'm going to add more ricotta cheese and also try some cheddar or provolone in the mix! I'm also going to try using spinach and adding some kind of protein.
