-【*My Moments of Joy*】
太阳公公倦怠了两天 今天有些不好意思了。 普天同庆的日子， 实在应该露个脸儿吧！ 于是笑眯眯地踱步出来， 跟大伙儿打了个招呼。
这么美的天光， 不做点好吃的， 太对不住太阳公公了。 扫了冰箱一圈，有点为难，似乎整不出什么让我有兴致的东东，肿么办？[擦汗] 有点想放弃，可是想到太阳公公都不偷懒，还是给自己鼓了鼓劲。要想当巧妇， 可不就得有 为无米之炊 的精神！脑子飞速运转，有啦 有啦 ⋯
一饼香喷喷的，东西合壁的 frittata 就出炉啦。营养丰富，口感饱满。
cast-iron skillet (10 inch)
¼ to ½ tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon Olive oil or any vegetable oil
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup heavy cream or milk
2 slices of smoked Gouda cheese, diced (I got mine from Trader Joe’s)
½ cup frozen roasted corn (I got mine from Trader Joe’s)
1 medium on-the-vine tomato (or ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved)
2-inch long Chinese stem lettuce (diced) (莴苣 )
4 large button mushrooms, sliced
½ piece fully cooked Italian chicken sausage (or any of your favorite sausage), sliced (I got mine from Trader Joe’s)
1 shallot, sliced
1 leaf of cabbage (卷心菜), sliced
1 cup spinach (loosely packed) (pat-dry)
Heat cast-iron skillet to hot, add in 1 cup sliced button mushrooms, sautéed (no oil) for 3-5 minutes until browned and sizzling, transfer to a container;
Add a tablespoon of oil to the pan, medium heat, sauté Italian chicken sausage until browned both sides, add into the mushroom container;
Add in shallot slices to the skillet, low to medium heat, sauté until browned; add in cabbage, sauté until wilt; add in spinach, sauté until wilt;
Whisk together eggs and salt in a bowl; add cream, gouda cheese, stir to combine. Stir in frozen corns, diced tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms/shallot/cabbage/spinach.
Melt butter in the cast-iron skillet, spread butter to oil the side as well; pour into the egg mixture;
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven until cooked through – about 12-14 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
How to clean mushroom: use a damp paper towel or a soft mushroom brush to wipe each mushroom, one at a time, to remove any dirt.
For a large frittata, add more minutes until all cooked through.
Optional: dust 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese over the frittatas before baking for more depth of flavors.
Some other optional ingredients to add or replace: frozen peas, sliced onion, etc.
