My daughter’s favorite breakfast is leftover Chinese food and her favorite dinner is scrambled eggs. She’s a little backwards, but I am not going to judge because my favorite breakfast is leftover spaghetti. I decided to merge her two favorites into one dish that could be eaten any time of the day.
I am accustomed to using cheese to add flavor to my frittatas and scrambled eggs, but we are trying to go completely dairy-free for my oldest son so I am looking for dairy-free ingredients to add flavor to egg dishes. The onions, red peppers, ginger, garlic, and soy add lots of flavor to this dish.
After adding the rice, I was tempted to just stop at that step and dive in. Especially since my kids were having a debate over whether I was ruining Chinese food or eggs by combing the two dishes into one frittata. They took back all of their comments after they took their first bite.
