Breakfast Tamale Frittata

Everyone ha heard of Taco Tuesday. I enjoy tacos here and there. This week, I want to feature another Mexican food staple, the tamale. We won't be making them, but will use them as an ingredient.


1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

4 tamales, husk removed

3 green onions, sliced

1 jar salsa, divided

Salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce

8 large eggs

3/4 cup grated pepper-jack cheese


Preheat oven to 425℉. Position oven rack to top setting


Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic; sauté 3 minutes to sweat. Roughly chop tamales; add to onions and sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned, while breaking with tamales with spatula as you sauté. Remove from heat. Add green onion and two heaping tablespoons salsa; stir well. Taste; adjust seasonings with salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce. Evenly distribute mixture across skillet; press mixture down to level.


Season eggs with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; beat well. Pour over meat mixture in skillet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until eggs are just set. Remove from oven; increase heat to broil. Cover eggs with cheese; carefully broil until cheese is browned and bubbly. Serve hot with salsa.


Enjoy!!!
