Waste or mistakes never happen in a farm kitchen.....only future animal or plant food.

Floating Frittata

Floating Frittata
Eggs, whipped
Leftovers, chopped
Green or white onion (optional)
Unrefined sea salt to taste
Seasoning to taste (optional)

 We found TWO hidden nests, one with white eggs and one with brown eggs.  I don't like to store mystery eggs, so I needed to used them quickly.  I floated the eggs and kept the ones that stayed mostly horizontal and gave the verticals to the dogs.  We didn't have any "floaters" this time, but they would have been tossed FAR, FAR away out of smell distance.

    I had some leftover homegrown, grass fed brisket with BBQ sauce and gelatin and some failed potato lasagna (using potatoes instead of noodles).  I used the fat off the brisket to sauté some onion and chopped the meat and potato dish into bite size pieces.  I added the meat/potatoes to the pan and when they were hot added the eggs.  I think basil and tomato based sauces have this "understanding" that they always taste good together.  I added some sprinkles of basil and red pepper flakes for color.  I cooked on medium low, covered.  After 5 minutes, I turned the stove off and let sit for another 5 minutes.  Cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the eggs...mine were pretty thick.

  1. Oo, that sounds delicious! Where did you find your mystery eggs? I remember once finding some eggs at least 2 weeks after they were laid, but fortunately they were all great!

  2. I think one nest was behind some storage items in the back of a cabinet and the other was in between the bales of hay.
