Good Morning! Don’t you just love eggs in the morning? I do, and today’s recipe could be eaten not just in the morning but on any time of the day (that is if you are not too choosy with your meal). It is also very easy to prepare and cooks in 20 minutes or less.
Pillsbury gave me this inspiration of making my own delicious Fritata. Aside from crab stick, mushroom and asparagus, I added some shrimp and clams. You too can mix and match your seafood and veggies. You could try fish or real crab meat, squid rings for seafood; carrots, peas, broccoli for veggies. I also made my own cheese and chive egg product by simply whisking the eggs, adding a bit of cheese and chive in the mixture, then some salt and pepper to taste. I followed the procedure in this recipe and made sure there’s enough heat to cook the top of the filling. You don’t want to fold your eggs over the filling (to cook both top and bottom) it will become an omelette.
Here’s my version of Seafood Fritata.
Are eggs bad for our health? According to the Harvard School of Public Health, there’s a recent research showing that moderate egg consumption (up to one a day) does not increase heart disease risk in healthy individuals and can actually be part of a healthy diet. While egg yolk is indeed high in cholesterol content, there are nutrients found in an egg like protein, vitamins B12 and D, riboflavin, and folate that may help lower the risk for heart disease. In a nutshell, it is not bad if the egg intake is in moderation.
Here’s an egg joke (from motifake.com) to remind us to slow down on those eggs! 😉
