My Love Affair with Frittatas
Saturday night we had friends for dinner and I made Maple Bourbon Roasted Salmon with Roasted Smashed Potatoes and Greens Catalan-Style. Dinner was delicious, but naturally there were left-overs. Even as I was putting them away, I let my mind make the choices of which ones to use for a Sunday frittata. Somehow, I had the Spain - On the Road Again show stuck in my mind and decided that including Portugal was okay too. Hey, it's my kitchen and I can do as I wish. To say nothing about the fact that my Honey loves my concoctions!
But I digress...yesterday's frittata used up the smashed potatoes and some of the greens. I thought it would be perfect with some cured Chorizo sausage and the whole thing sprinkled with grated Asiago and dusted with Smoked Paprika (or Pimenton, as the Spanish call it, to compensate for bringing Portugal to the table).
And don't you think a lovely maple salmon and caramelized leek frittata would be a wonderful mid-week supper served with a salad? I do!
I've even used left over pasta (my other weakness) for my frittatas...excellent always! If you check here, you can find lots of frittata options.
And speaking of pasta....Don't forget that this week's Presto Pasta Night is being hosted by Melissa, The Cooking Diva. Send your entries to cookingdiva AT gmail DOT com.
