So, here is a way to get your day started with a Cinco de Mayo Breakfast Celebration – Fiesta Frittata.
This recipe was featured in the Wisconsin Bed & Breakfast Association’s Cookbook Most Requested Recipes from Wisconsin’s Unique B&B’s and Country Inns, it has been a favorite at Pleasant View Bed & Breakfast since the first time I served it. Especially popular with health & fitness enthusiasts, this recipe is high in protein and filled with good carbs.
8 ounces Cheddar Jack cheese, shredded
1 (15 ounce) can Black Beans
1 (11 ounce) can White Shoepeg Corn
1 (10 ounce) can RoTel Tomatoes with Green Chiles
Garlic & Herb seasoning
1½ cups milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
½-1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350°F and spray two pie dishes with not-stick cooking spray. Cover the bottom of each dish with cheese. Drain the beans, corn, and tomatoes well and then mix together. Divide the mixture evenly between the two pie dishes and sprinkle with seasoning. In a large bowl, blend together the eggs, milk, baking powder, and sour cream. Pour this mixture into the pie dishes. Bake 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes away clean. Let sit 5 minutes, cut and serve.
Tips & Variations:
- Serve with sliced avocado, sliced fresh tomato and a dollop of sour cream.
- Garnish with salsa and serve sliced avocados on the side.
- Only want to make one pie dish? Use half of the tomato, bean and corn mixture to fill one of the pie dishes then use remaining tomatoes, beans, and corn to create a salsa.
