Frittata is one of my go-to meals for when I don't feel much like cooking. There are few things simpler than throwing some eggs and tasty bits of this and that in a pan. This week I decided to have some fun and use something other than the standard vegetables and cheese. I went with a Mexican theme and added whole tortillas.
I left the tortillas whole creating a sort of layered dish. I would almost call this an egg-adilla, but that just sounds too corny. Besides, unlike breakfast burritos or quesadillas, I had tortillas in the eggs and not eggs in the tortillas.
For my version I used (store-bought) fresh salsa made with tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, and cilantro along with plenty of Monterrey Jack cheese. For my husband's serving, I just used the salsa. I think you could also do some sauteed peppers, onions, and tomatoes, or beans (whole or refried), or chorizo. Really just add whatever you want to add.
I suppose if I cut the tortillas into strips this would more closely resemble migas, but I liked the aesthetic of a whole tortilla. In order to keep the tortillas centered within the egg, I cooked one serving at a time in a small pan.
I'm not going to give an actual recipe because this is a truly free-from dish. However, I will show how I did it and hope I can provide some inspiration for your future Casual Fridays.
I heated some oil in a small pan over medium heat and added my first tortilla layer in the pan. Salsa and cheese went on top of the tortilla. Yes, I know I should have shredded my cheese. It's Friday and I don't want to be bothered.
I added 3 eggs to the pan over the top of all the tortillas. It would look more charming if the eggs didn't flow around the tortilla stack, but how a food looks is irrelevant on Casual Friday.
Invert on a plate for a pyramid effect and put a bit more salsa on top.
