Steak Frittata

When all else fails, clean your house and make a frittata. It really is game changer when you are needing some peace of mind. My new Steak and Caramelized Onion Frittata is so simple and only involves minimal ingredients.

It’s true that anytime I am feeling overwhelmed, I’ll throw a frittata in the oven and clean my house. Wouldn’t you agree that there is something so magical about having both a clean house and something in the oven cooking? Having a clean space and meal prepped for the week is sure to make anyone do a little dance.

Steak and Caramelized Onion Frittata

One of my favorite ways to make a frittata is using leftovers or ingredients that are about to go bad. Instead of throwing things out, I love tossing everything in a bowl with some eggs and creating something delicious. Sometimes just a recipe that is thrown together using random ingredients can turn out to be pretty delicious. If you don’t have everything in your fridge that goes along with this recipe, get creative and make your own version.

What leftovers can you use for a Frittata?

  • Chicken & Fajita Peppers
  • Steak & Asparagus
  • Pot Roast & Sweet Potatoes
  • Sausage & Tomatoes
  • Bacon and Zucchini
  • Chicken and Broccoli
  • There are many more options that you can throw together. This is just a few that I have done in the past that have worked out really well together. My family always loves a good frittata.

Tips for making the perfect Frittata:

  • Use a cast iron skillet coated with olive oil.
  • Incorporate coconut milk or Mac’s Sauce to your egg mixture to give it a creamy texture.
  • Use any protein leftovers along with some veggies to make different versions. These can be so versatile and save you from throwing out and wasting leftovers.
  • Make sure to over-bake. Bake on 350F for 25-30 minutes for the perfect texture.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
