Instead of slicing then frying up the Turkey Spam to go along with hash and eggs for breakfast this past Saturday, I decided to make a frittata instead. I was actually going to use tuna at first ala San Marino Chili Corned Tuna Frittata but I changed my mind in the end and used Turkey Spam. Yah, I like to change my mind at the last minute all the time. It brings excitement to my kitchen, I reckon’.
So let me show you how I made Turkey Spam & Potatoes Frittata.
|Turkey Spam & Potatoes Frittata|
- 7 eggs
- 1/2 cup of half and half (or milk)
- 3 medium potatoes, cubed
- 1 can of turkey spam, cubed
- 2 sprigs of scallions, chopped
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- sprinkles of garlic powder
- sprinkle of salt & pepper
- shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tbsp of oil
- 1 tbsp of butter
- Slice up 3 thoroughly washed medium potatoes, with skin(or not, your choice) into small cubes. Heat up oil and butter in a sautée pan. Add the cubed potatoes to cook until fork tender.
- While cooking the potatoes, chopped up 1 tomato, 2 sprigs of scallions, and the turkey spam. Once the potatoes are fork tender, add the scallions and tomatoes. Stir and cook for 3 minutes.
- Add the cubed turkey spam, season with a sprinkle of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir and cook another 3 minutes or so.
- Beat 7 large eggs in a bowl with 1/2 cup of half and half. Use milk if you don’t have the latter. Season with sprinkles of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Beat a couple more times to blend the seasonings in.
- Preheat the oven to 355°.
- Spread the potatoes-tomatoes-scallions-turky spam filling on the pan flat. Slowly pour in the beaten egg all around. Once the eggs are poured, tilt the pan to the side a little bit while scooping up the edge towards the middle. Do this 2 more times on the other sides of the pan. Distribute the filling flat after each tilting of the pan.
- Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top then stick it in the preheated oven to finish cooking the top, for 6-8 minutes.
- Run a butter knife to the edge of the frittata once out of the oven. Slice it up in triangles, and serve.
Of course you can use other kinds of SPAM to make this. Or use tuna fish, salmon, corned beef or justbacon. Or something healthier using egg whites, onions, and shitake mushrooms. Seriously, once you get the habit of making <strong>frittata</strong>, it’s really that easy to make and I’m sure everyone will enjoy it.
