I am in to food recycling. That is, I cook something, then remake the leftovers into something else. That is how we got a frittata for breakfast this morning.
A couple of nights ago we had roasted potatoes and I had about one potato's worth of wedges left. So this morning I am looking in the frig and spy those babies and think "Frittata!" I already had some chopped sweet bell peppers, cuz when I cut one up in strips for roasting in another recipe, I could'nt bear to throw away the ends. So I cube them up and keep them in the frig for something else. If I don't use them in a day or so, I put them in a freezer bag so I almost always have some red or green peppers on hand. Brilliant, I know.
So breakfast was fast since the potatoes were already cooked. All I had to do was chop a couple of slices of an onion and saute them with the bell pepper for a few minutes in a bit of olive oil, then stir in the potatoes and heat it all up. I cracked 5 eggs into a bowl, whisked in some milk and salt, and poured it over the vegies. I let that cook with the lid on the saute pan for about 5 minutes, sprinkled on some cheese, and then divided into 4 portions for serving.
That was my recycled omlette!
