My son just recently started eating eggs—a miracle for which I have been waiting for years. A few weeks back we attended a party that had an omelet bar, complete with an accompanying chef creating fluffy, perfectly cooked eggs for guests at their request.
My son spent half of the party watching the chef make omelets and hearing guests rave about the outcome. I guess all of the excitement (finally) made him take a leap of faith and create his own first omelet made of simply cheese and eggs. After eyeing his plate for a few minutes and sniffing the omelet, he sat down and took his first bite …followed by a second…and so on. He had become an egg lover and in that short moment my life just became a lot easier. I envisioned future morning meals that had previously been just dreams in our household. From now on our weekends could start with omelets, poached eggs, scrambled eggs and of course frittatas—my favorite dish of eggs.
So since my family is now egg crazy, I decided to cook a frittata in my Aroma Rice Cooker and simplify the process. I made a regular egg frittata and it turned out amazingly moist, flavorful and just perfectly cooked. I have an aversion to overcooked eggs and often times it’s hard to avoid making this mistake with kids running around and their loud noises filling my house. This Sunday was peaceful and calm since I didn’t have to baby sit the egg batter or my children. I sat down and relaxed while the rice cooker performed yet another miracle. In fact, the eggs went over so well that my kids have since asked for eggs once a week for dinner…breakfast has now become dinner as well.
4 oz of shredded cheese
16 oz of Santa Fe style frozen vegetables
16 oz of sausage crumbles of your choice
1 tsp of garlic salt
1 tsp of Italian seasoning
In a bowl whisk your eggs until fluffy. Add the rest of the ingredients and give it a good stir. Coat the inner pot of your rice cooker with cooking spray and pour in the egg mixture. Close the lid and set your rice cooker on the “White Rice” setting. Once ready the rice cooker will beep and you’ll be ready to enjoy your easy-made, delicious frittata.
