Bunny Veggie Frittata Bento

I love to make Frittatas, because they use up the leftovers and no one ever complains! In fact my kiddo said this was the best dinner ever and wanted seconds.  Luckily I had made a big one so we all had seconds and I had some left over again from dinner for her bento today.

I put two pictures up today so you can see the yummy frittata without the bunny egg sheet on top.  Also it lets you see that you don’t need to put all the “cuteness” into a bento for it to still look attractive to the eye and make you want to gobble it up.

For this Bunny Veggie Frittata Bento I placed the frittata on one side and added a quick bunny egg sheet to the top with nori eyes and mouth (I used the ears of the bunny cutter to make the little hands also). Using orange food separator and a pink silicon cup I put some Kiwi with baran cutouts of lady bug and mushroom, also have a turkey meat flower with bunny pick sticking out next to a sweet red strawberry and pea pods.

The leftovers for the frittata can be pretty much anything. I used some sausage (brats) cut into chunks, carrots and onion chopped up small, some frozen spiniach (defrosted in micro and squeezed out) and some leftover rice, add some cheese spice and eggs and Walla- YUMMY Goodness!!!

Recipe for my Veggie Frittata

9 eggs (large)

3 Tablespoons of heavy cream (can use milk or half and half) 

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper (or to your taste)

approx 2 tsp dried herbs (I used parsley flakes)

3 sausages precooked,  quartered and chopped in small cubes

handful of baby carrots, approx 5-6, quartered and chopped small

half onion chopped small

1/4 cup defrosted frozen spinach (with water squeezed out)

1/2 cup  Parmesan cheese (I have used shredded Cheddar or also shredded Italian blends in the past also Yummy)

Preheat oven 350

1. Saute onion and carrot in 1 TBL butter until soft, add spinach and sausage cook few more minutes and set aside.

2. In a bowl add eggs, cream, salt, pepper, herbs and cheese and whisk until blended.

3. In a casserole dish sprayed with Pam (or buttered well) place the veggie and sausage mix on bottom of dish, spread out evenly.

4. slowly pour egg mix onto top of veg and sausage trying not to disturb the balance, if  veg mix clumps spread out again when finished pouring egg.

5. Cover with foil  and place in center of preheated oven.

6. Check for doneness (will be bouncy and yet firm to touch) at about 20 min. Be careful not to over cook or eggs will be dry.

7. Remove from oven and let rest a few minutes, serve warm with a side salad or some fruit.

Momma Says: Frittatas are a fancy way of making basically an omlett, difference is Frittatas are baked in the oven (usually they are started in a heavy cast iron skillet on stove then transferred to oven to finish cooking). They puff up so nice and fluffy, your family will never know they are eating leftovers!

Tip: We have also eaten them in a tortilla, like a burrito with lettuce, fresh tomato, salsa and guacamole, YUMMY!
