Frittata? Quiche? Egg thingy

What's the difference between a frittata and a crustless quiche? Ehhh no matter, John loves these things (not so much me) so I've been making them as an easy dinner for him. Then I just do a quick egg sandwich for me (so much better if you ask me!). I have to say I don't normally like making things that take 45 minutes in the oven... but whenever I make this for John I just whip up a quick bread loaf for us to eat too... come on two birds one stone. Both take about the same time, and in the end everyone has something tasty to eat!

I'll tell you more about the loaf variation tomorrow. For now here's the quiche... frittata... whatever.

John's tasty egg dinner

In a frying pan saute in a little olive oil spray (then set aside to cool a bit)
1 small onion chopped
2 tsp garlic chopped
1/4 cup mushrooms chopped
2 chicken sausages (sliced)
handful of turkey pepperoni sliced (chopped up)

Meanwhile, in a large bowl beat up
4 eggs (don't tell him I put that many yokes in... he wont be pleased)
2 egg whites
1 cup skim milk

Then toss in:
1/8 cup grated parmigiana cheese
couple glugs red hot
1/4 tsp chili powder
few grinds of black pepper
dash of salt
1/4 cup mozzarella (john likes the fat free variety)
1/4 cup roasted red peppers
4 rings of pepperoncini chopped

Stir your cooked up onion mixture into your egg mixture and then pour it all into a greased 9x9" pan. Bake at 350 for around 45 minutes. (jiggle the pan... if it still jiggles... it's not done yet)

Let cool slightly, and serve!

I enjoy frittatas/quiche/egg thingies on occasion, but I'm with you on the fried egg sandwich. I like that much more.

brandi said...

yum, that looks great!

Megan said...

Wow! That frittata thingy is chock-full of good stuff. I made one a while ago with artichokes, fontina, and sundried tomatoes. Yum. And I love making quiche. I would eat an egg sandwich for breakfast over quiche anyday, but I love quiche for lunch.

Steph, this looks SO good! I don't love frittatas, but I do love quiche and this looks like the right sort of in between dish. My husband would love this too, especially with the turkey pepperoni. Num!

p.s. - I linked to your Cookie Exchange in my post today. Still trying to decide if I'll be up for more cookie baking once the holiday madness is over ... when is the deadline for entry??

I think the distinction might come from what pan you put it in... Although you baked this one in a square, not a tart pan, cake pan, or pie tin, so I might venture that it's actually a casserole. It's all in the eye of the beholder, though!

Maria said...

It looks good, whatever the name is:)

Brad said...

Yum thanks for the recipe. Have you ever tried a "strada" which is a similar egg bake dish?

stephchows said...

Brad I've heard of a strata... and now that I googled it LOL I think I'd like it! Might have to give it a try :)

sounds yummy! sounds yummy in a sandwich too. i especially like this type of dish. unfortunately b is allergic to eggs so we don't eat them :(

Looks delicious! I'm not sure that the difference is? I think quiche has more cream in it whereas a frittata doesn't? But don't mind me, I'm just guessing! lol

Pam said...

I don't care what it's called - it looks mighty tasty to me.

You say quiche - I say frittata! We both say delicious!

Emily said...

Oooh lovely. And so much healthier than if it had a crust. I've been digging eggs lately. Great job!!

Steph said...

I like it better crustless!
