Look around this blog. You notice anything? Keep looking… That’s right. No basic egg dishes.
The egg, one of the most versatile, simply and healthy things one could ever cook and you won’t see me use them (unless we’re baking something – then it doesn’t count). Want a dirty little secret? I hate eggs. Ever since one of my mom’s boyfriends told me that that little white thing you get in some eggs was a baby chicken I’d just murdered, I’ve never been able to eat them.
These protein packed pillars of the gastronomical universe should make my meatatarian self salivate over ever umami filled bite, but but one moment of traumatic childhood egg cracking and there it went. Now that I’m a big girl, all grown up and in my own kitchen, I am trying to embrace the egg. In small doses and with a lot of other things thrown in, it’s not bad.
In an attempt to get to know eggs, and seeing a recipe packed with tons of other flavors and textures, I picked this cheesy potato frittata from The Weekend Gourmet to challenge myself for this month’s Secret Recipe Club (a club where you are given a blog to sneak around and test out a recipe and I d love myself some sneakiness). I was super excited to get The Weekend Gourmet because of these (but figured that would kind of be like cheating for an SRC post) and because I have been reading Wendy’s blog for a year. She always has great giveaways and delicious down home food to salivate over. This was my first time getting a blog who I knew and it was super hard to keep quiet bout it!
And yes, I ate that slice. No, nothing bad happened.
