Hey ladies!
I would love to see some of your favorite recipes. I need some new ideas to try. Preferably semi-healthy. But a few not so healthy ones are ok too. :)

Ooh. I have two. The first is my go-to pancake recipe which can be altered to fit almost anything you have in the freezer or pantry. The second is something I just tried for the first time this year and will never go back to store-bought stock again. NOTE: both the links send you to a page with MY recipes and pictures.

Can you define "healthy"?

Something that is not a zillion calories a serving. Doesnt need to beout super healthy. Hopefully something that I can sneak in veggies and that sort of thing for my picky family. I don't really have a specific here lol

I used ham when making this:

Spinach & Mushroom Frittata

Posted By Mrs.Edge On September 1, 2011 @ 12:29 pm In All Recipes,Eggs

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients and Cooking Steps

  • 10 eggs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 tbsp full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cp mushrooms, diced
  • 1 cup of meat of your choice
  • 1/4 cp chopped tomatoes
  • salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, dried parsley

The great thing about this recipe is it doesn’t have to be exact. You can add a couple more eggs, or cut back a few to add more veggies or meat. Almost any veggies or meat will do but I LOVE this particular combination. A frittata is the perfect dish to make with leftovers too! Just skip the sauteing of veggies.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook spinach in 1/4 cp water in covered pot for 2 minutes, just until wilted, drain & set aside.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs & coconut milk. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper & parsley & give a final whisk.

Saute onions & mushrooms in the olive oil & coconut oil over medium heat in an oven proof skillet for 3 minutes. Add garlic & tomatoes & continue to cook for 1-2 more minutes, until onions are translucent. Add cooked spinach to the mix and lightly salt & pepper the mixture.

Add chopped meat of your choice (I used a leftover angus burger but ham, bacon, turkey, pork – anything would be delicious!) About 1 cup is a good amount to use. Mix thoroughly.

Spread mixture even into bottom of skillet. Pour egg mixture over spinach mixture. Use spatula to lift up spinach mixture along sides of pan to let the egg mixture flow underneath.

Cook mixture on stove top on medium heat until about half set, put the skillet in the preheated oven and cook for 13-15 minutes or until puffy & golden.

Finish by placing frittata under the broiler for up to a minute to get a deeper brown color & a bit of crispiness. Be very careful handling the skillet! It’s extremely hot once placed in the oven. Allow to cool before slicing. Makes 4-6 servings.

Here is another favorite of ours.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Combine spinach, cottage cheese, mozzarella, bacon or ham, green onions, mushrooms, and eggs in a large bowl.  Mix well.  Pour into a greased 9-inch pie dish.  Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the spinach mixture.  Sprinkle with black olives if desired.

Bake at 350° for 45 to 60 minutes, until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
