Easy Peasy Frittata

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crust-less quiche or scrambled eggs, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses or vegetables. The word “frittata” is Italian and roughly translates to “fried”.

This dish is very easy to make and can be prepared in less than one hour. I was lucky to have been at the right place at the right time as Chef Gideon decided to show off his culinary skills.  On Fathers day last month, he decided to whip up this meal for his family and yours truly. Gideon’s Frittata was one of a kind! He added very ripe plantains (fried by the way) and lots of assorted meat. Once I bit into it, I was sold! lol! It took the Grace of God  not to devour the whole casserole dish. I mean the dish was THAT GOOD! The juices from the assorted meat and the sweetness of the plantain hit the right places in my mouth!

I kid you not, this dish is the BOMB! Probably the next best thing after Jollof! Ghana Jollof to be specific.

Knowing your girl, I tried my hands on this dish and shared it with my nieces! I loved it and of course they loved it too! Listen, try this out and thank me later! Here are the ingredients and the instructions. Do let me know if you’ve tried this before and enjoy it as much as I do now!

PS: I don’t do measurements. I just gauge with my eyes, hahahah!! I also throw the spices in till I hear my ancestors say “it is enough my child”. Hahah!!!



  • Assorted Meat: chicken sausage, beef mortadella, minced meat  (you can throw in any protein of your choice!)
  • Bell Peppers (Red, Yellow, Green). 1 each
  • Cheese (mozzarella and Cheddar)
  • 1 full Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • 6 Eggs
  • Overripe plantain
  • Spices ( cayenne pepper, garlic and ginger powder and any of your favourite mixed spices)


  1. Peel plantains and cut them up in thin slices (not plantain chips kind of thin). Sprinkle a little salt and fry it in oil like how you would normally fry your plantains. Remove it from oil and place it on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  2. Put some oil – about 2 tablespoons in a skillet ( I’m just forming posh! Oya put oil in whatever utensil you have) and put it on medium heat. Throw in your onions, sprinkle some garlic and ginger powder and saute until your ancestors say its perfecto! Place the sauteed onions aside and do same with the chopped bell peppers, sausage, mushrooms and beef mortadella. 
  3. Put some oil in a pan and cook the minced meat. Add some salt, mixed spices of your preference, ginger and garlic powder and stir till it’s cooked.
  4. In a large bowl, crack in all the eggs. Add cayenne pepper and some salt and whisk to combine.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (I usually just turn the knob to the highest to get the oven super hot before the dish goes in)
  6. Now find a casserole dish or baking dish and start layering all the ingredients. I start with the minced meat followed by the sauteed bell peppers and onions, mushrooms, chicken sausage, fried plantain, beef mortadella and repeat till the casserole dish looks full.
  7. Pour the beaten eggs over the dish and sprinkle the mixed cheese on top of it.
  8. Place the casserole bowl in the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes. once the time is up, turn off the oven and Let it stay in it for about 5-10 minutes.
  9. Take it out and dish it.

With love



Let’s Bake!

I have actively started baking. What I mean by that is I’ve decided to give my mom mini heart attacks when she hears unusual sounds from the kitchen. Lol!

Why did it take soo long for me to get here!? Baking is absolutely fun! I almost always forget all the 1001 problems I have. The only downside is being on your feet for long. But once you get a hang of it, you don’t even feel tired. Ok…maybe…just maybe someone is getting old. 😐

The first thing I decided to try my hands on was meat pies. Why did i do this? It looked pretty easy if you ask. I had also seen one of my fav spice queens, EssieSpice prepare it live on her Insta stories and damn, it looked both easy and cool. So yours truly decided to try her hands on it. My first attempt was a disaster. Hahah. It tasted like bread. My mom had a good laugh but I didn’t let that get to me. I made sure she ate it. Lol. Cos after all nothing goes to waste in her house. ☺ After a couple of attempts..i mastered it and the taste and texture was superbo!

I then decided to try my hands on something I thought was complicated. Lol. I’m a “throw me a challenge” kind of girl. Scratch that … I’m a “bake something exciting” kind of girl. Lol.

I had been to a friend’s house and as usual, the flair and simplicity of how she baked her brownies gave me the kick that I could even bake ’em and make them look more exciting. So I checked up Pinterest recipes on how to make brownies and gosh I got soo many recipes. That alone was the beginning of my problems. I spent about 2 hours glossing through recipes and telling myself I’d beat that…only to try the first brownie and dump them quietly into the bin outside my house for the unnecessary laughter and teasing that my mother would have rained on me. My next couple of attempts were encouraging. At least I could eat it and even share some with my colleagues at work to taste and give me their opinions.

Christys Epic Brownies

I’m happy to say I’ve progressed and might even start selling my awesome delicious brownies. You ain’t getting it for free this time. Lol. Even my mother will have to pay before enjoying. Hahaha

Give it a try. Baking is for everybody. Just get your measurements right. Check Youtube for tutorials or Pinterest. Experiment but make sure its edible.

What will you bake today?
