We have a bag in the freezer which is filled with scraps of bread leftover from various loaves. I decided it was time to find something to do with them. I wondered if it was possible to do a frittata/tortilla using bread instead of potatoes or other vegetables. I found a few recipes, all using different vegetables and quantities of bread and other ingredients. I used the leftovers from tonight's tea, along with some cocktail sausages from the weekend.
- 100 g bread, cut into small pieces
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbs milk
- 100g assorted cooked vegetables (I used onion, pepper, rice and sweetcorn)
- 3 cocktail sausages, chopped small
- salt, pepper and smoked paprika seasoning.
I beat the eggs and milk together, stirred in all the other ingredients and poured the mixture into a greased and lined 8 inch tin. This was covered in foil and baked at gas mark 4 (180°C) for about half an hour.
The frittata was put in the fridge overnight ready for me to take for lunch tomorrow.
I had the frittata for lunch in work. It had gone firm enough to pick up and eat, making it ideal for picnics or packed lunches.
