Improvisational Brunch


I made up this recipe last week to make use of some of the absurdly large yellow squash that came in my grocery order last week. Seeing as it turned out really well and wasn't difficult at all, I thought I'd share!

Yellow Squash Baked Frittata

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 small yellow squash (or in my case, one very large one)
1 onion
1 bell pepper
green onion (to taste)
3 or 4 eggs
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
salt and pepper, to taste (approx 1/2 tsp)
herbs as desired (I put in basil, rosemary, and thyme)
1/4 cup parmesan

Slice up the zucchini and dice all other veggies. Heat olive oil on medium/low heat, add vegetables and all seasonings, and saute until everything is cooked thoroughly.. In a bowl, combine eggs with bread crumbs and mix well. Add in vegetables and parmesan.

Pour mixture into a greased 9" round dish or pan. Sprinkle some parmesan and bread crumbs on top if desired. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.

I also threw in some kale. I imagine spinach, tomatoes, or mushrooms would also taste pretty fantastic. Substituting/adding cheeses could also be good. Cottage cheese would make it more of a fluffy omelette/casserole consistency, if you're looking for that.

This is a pretty fail-proof kind of dish, so enjoy, and hesitate to improvise!
