What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

Biscuit-topped Frittata

After Easter I had a whole lot of leftover eggs… and a couple of ideas. Remember my 4 food groups: bread, fruit, cheese, and chocolate? Well this one involves two of them – bread, in the shape of yummy whole wheat biscuits, and cheese, yummy cheese =) Here’s how it works…


Voila yummy biscuit-topped frittata…

My first impressions were that the frittata and biscuit would be better of separate, but cold the second day it really came into it’s own. This would be a great dish to bring to a potluck or afternoon picnic.

Here’s what you need:

  • 4 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 200g mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 plum tomatoes (sliced)
  • 100g shredded gouda
  • 2 links turkey sausage (cooked and cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 1/2 batch biscuit dough (Use your favourite recipe or try a new one. I substitute plain yoghurt, for buttermilk, use half whole wheat flour, and cut 1/4 of the butter.)

Here’s what you do:

  1. Grease a medium frying pan. Heat to medium high heat. Line pan with mushrooms. Brown.
  2. Lower heat to medium low. Add the eggs then the sausage, then the tomatoes and cheese.
  3. Cook until egg starts to solidify.
  4. In the meantime, heat oven to 220C/430F. Mix up biscuit dough, roll into circle, put into freezer until egg is ready.
  5. When egg is mostly solidified, top with biscuit and bake till golden brown.
  6. Serve hot or cold (I prefer it cold).

Enjoy =)  Print recipe (look, new print recipe function – tell me what you think)
