Easy Cauliflower Frittata

easy cauliflower fritatta - All that's Jas

Is plural for frittata still frittata or frittatas? I’m afraid my site would be searched for a different reason, ha! To get me to eat vegetables my mom would often hide them in the most unexpected ways. It wasn’t that I hated them but I wouldn’t even try them to begin with, and probably just thought I’d hate them. I mean duh, they’re vegetables…Gross! But once she tricked me into having a bite, I was hooked. So it was with cauliflower when she hid it in a frittata.

Easy Cauliflower Frittata

Fast forward to now:

 
My taste buds for food in general have changed over the years so much that you have to hide it from me for real. You know because of the famous sea diet: I “sea” it, I eat it. I’m no longer the skinny, picky eater I once was. Funny how life works out. I love this easy cauliflower frittata because it’s delicious and reminds me of childhood.

Bottom line?

 
If you have picky eaters, you can hide vegetables pretty much everywhere. Remember the whole cabbage head I hid from my husband? That was my favorite! And that other way I hid cauliflower from my granddaughter? I love this hide and seek game. What hiding place are you most proud of? Tell me in the comments, I’d love to read your ideas.

Best part:


 
The cauliflower frittata is easy to make, low in carbs, gluten free and can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or supper.

easy cauliflower fritatta All that's Jas

Ingredients:
Serves 4-6

1 small head cauliflower
4 eggs
¼ cup milk
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup shredded cheddar (or mozzarella)
3 tablespoons olive oil

To garnish (optional)
Roasted tomatoes and chopped fresh chives

 

Directions:

Clean and separate the cauliflower into florets. Bring a pot with salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until fork tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well.

Meanwhile, whisk eggs and milk together in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add drained cauliflower florets and using a fork, or a masher, press the cauliflower just enough to break down larger pieces. Do not mash it, unless you’re really trying to hide it. Fold in the cheese.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Heat the oil in a 6 or 8-inch cast iron skillet or an ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower egg mixture and distribute the filling evenly. Cook until the bottom is just brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until frittata is set on top, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes to finish cooking.

Slice into wedges and serve warm.

Serving suggestion: top with a dollop of sour cream alongside salad greens.

    I love cauliflower now that I’m an adult but I hated it when I was a kid. And then I had a super picky kid and I was the mommy hiding the veggies! Circle of Life I guess. Thanks for sharing at Over the Moon. Hope to see you again next week.

      You are so right, Shelley! I was the pickiest eater there ever was. I truly hated food and ate just enough to survive. I was a nightmare for my mom, because there was no food I liked. Nothing! I spent my childhood at doctors’ trying to figure out why I don’t have an appetite and how to gain some weight. Now not only do I adore food, I have to diet to lose weight. The irony, lol.

    Ha!! Me too. Hide all of the food, not just the veggies. I am also on the seefood diet. Unfortunately my belt is getting a bit tight on that diet so I may have to try something else for a week or two 😉

      Donna, do you mean you only eat it raw or you have never even tried this vegetable? In that case, I’d suggest “hiding” it from yourself in my cauli mac and cheese recipe first, lol. I can’t wait to hear what you think!! Have a great weekend!

    I want to try this! I love all things cauliflower, but my kids do not, which is why I couldn’t be happier about my faux-tato trickery: Cauliflower Shepherd’s Pie! I had my stepson devouring this dish for months! I finally broke down and told him that the mashed potatoes were really cauliflower. He secretly still loves the dish although he won’t admit it!
