Menu Plan Monday 7-7-08

Monday - - (No meat Monday) - - Potato-Veggie Frittata - One of my recently new favorites... yes, I know. I list this a lot on my menu plans! However, it works with so many different veggie combos, with/without meat... I just LOVE it!

Potato-Veggie Frittata

2 T vegetable oil
1 small onion, peeled and chopped fine
1 pound small new potatoes, cut into quarters and parboiled
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
8 large eggs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1 cup mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms...)
1/4 pound sliced ham, chopped
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet with oven-proof handle heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute 2 minutes. Add potatoes, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.

In medium bowl, with whisk, lightly beat eggs, Parmesan cheese, and rosemary. Stir egg mixture and chopped ham into vegetables; cook 3 minutes. Place in heated oven; bake 10 minutes. (I find it needs a bit more time.) Sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5 minutes more until egg is set and cheese is melted.

Pork roast and potatoes

Wednesday - - Stir Fry

Thursday - - Readers choice! Here's the deal. I have a lot of white potatoes that need using up, and can't think of what to make! Post a recipe in the comments, or link to a recipe using potatoes, and I'll pick one to try on Thursday! I'll give some linky love to the person that posts the winning recipe!

Friday - - Left overs

Sunday we will be at a wedding!

  1. When you say white potatoes do you mean russets?
    I like just taking them and chopping them into about 1" cubes and drizzling them with a little olive oil and sprinkling them with Nature's Seasoning (if you don't have that, then a little salt, pepper, garlic powder and italian seasoning). Cook at 350 until done (you can stick a fork into a big one and it feels soft, about 20 minutes) This is best as a side though.

    For a main dish, I'd add some cooked shredded chicken or browned spicy pork sausage to this Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes recipe.

  2. Here's an easy one.....crock pot.....dice those potatoes and place in the bottom of your crock pot. Mix together a can of cream of mushroom condensed soup and lipton onion soup mix. Make meatloaf whatever you like. Layer the meatloaf over the potatoes and then pour the "gravy" over the top. At the end of the day you'll have meatloaf, potatoes and gravy.

  3. My kids love a simple Shepher's Pie. I layer browned ground beef, then corn, then mashed potatoes in a greased casserole and cook at 350° for 25 minutes. It is always a hit at our house!

  4. Here's my own potato soup recipe, posted on RecipeZaar:

    And here's one of my favorite ways to make potatoes-- Mexican twice baked potatoes:
