How To Make Overnight Frittata with Heirloom Tomatoes and PeppersPosted in : Dinner on by : allison
Overnight Frittata with Heirloom Tomatoes and Peppers
If I’m going to eat breakfast in the morning, overnight breakfast is a must-do! A typical night owl, my mornings have only enough spare time to make sure my teeth get brushed. Prepping overnight breakfasts the night before takes just a few minutes, and Hot Logic makes cooking mercifully simple.
After experimenting with overnight oatmeal (with great success!) I decided to try out egg-based dishes. Protein is an important part of any meal, especially breakfast, so I was eager to see if I could use Hot Logic to close the protein-gap in my mornings.
This recipe took about 10 minutes to assemble. I stuck it in the Hot Logic 400 overnight, and in the morning it was ready for me to stick in an insulated bag and take with me to work. I have to say, it was more creamy and delicious than any frittata I’ve ever baked in the oven. I suspect the slow, low cook time allowed it to cook up more like custard, avoiding the leathery texture eggs tend to get when overcooked.
For the prep:
Whisk four eggs, with salt and pepper, directly in your Hot Logic pan. Add 3-4 small tomatoes (or 1 medium tomato) as well as a few diced peppers. I used heirloom hungarian peppers because I like a mild kick. You could upgrade to serrano or jalapeno if you like more heat, or downgrade to red or green if you like to keep it mild.
Toss them into the eggs, the put the lid on it and set it on the shelf (or put it in the Mini, which works just the same).
Voila! Eggs and veggies for breakfast.
