Show Me Your Fatata's!


It is 7 p.m., dinner wasn't started and the family is raging hungry....ohh and your cabinets are looking rather bare.  Try this quick, easy meal, that allows you to improvise the ingredients and is extremely yummy!.   
Four Spot Fatata!
Crisp - Creamy - Healthy - Fast - Delicious! If I can flip this big bad boy with one hand so it crisps on both sides, you can too!^-^. Just FOUR ingredients, makes it happen.

Prep time: 3 minutes | Cook time: 12 minutes | Total time: 15 minutes | Servings: 4
  • 6  Large Eggs or you can use Egg substitute
  • 1  Medium Zucchini - shredded
  • 4 ounce(s) Salmon Flavored Philly Cream Cheese - room temp. or soften in microwave 6 seconds
  • 1 cup(s) Frozen Veggies * Onion/ Peppers . Package reads: Stir Fry Peppers & Onions. Thaw 5 seconds in microwave -drain the excess juice.
Steps
  • 1. Using a 12 inch non-stick frying pan, generously coat the pan with cooking oil spray. Place pan on stove top over Medium High heat. When pan sizzles from a droplet of water, your ready to add the egg mixture. In medium sized bowl add all the eggs, whisk for 30 seconds or until light in texture. Add to the egg mixture the zucchini and onion, pepper blend. Now dollop into the eggs by teaspoons full, your softened cream cheese. Do not stir again.
  • 2. Pour egg mixture into frying pan. Cover with a loosely placed piece of foil, {this allows the steam to escape and help cook the top of the Fatata cook through. Do not stir, just let it cook! Once the edges are turning brown and bubbly, the perimeter is looking slightly solidified, and the center of the Fatata is puffy {about 6 minutes time} you are ready to flip this big bad boy! Check your edges to make sure their not sticking, then place a wide spatula under the Fatata until you have reached the center of the egg blend. Now give it a quick flip. Gorgeous... let it cook another 4 minutes or so. Slide onto a large plate and serve!
  • 3. Note: If your not a big fan of salmon, swap the Philly blend for Garden Vegetable or Chive & Onion. I garnish with sliced tomatoes, maybe a hit of shredded cheddar cheese and a toss of snipped scallions! Skys the limit on the variations~
