Roasted Vegetable Frittata OverheadEver wonder what to do with those left over roasted vegetables? This recipe is essentially as simple as mixing the vegetables with a few eggs and putting them back in the oven. Eggs easily act as a vehicle to many dishes and they are doing just that in this leftover roasted vegetable frittata. You can choose any leftover vegetables for this recipe, but I have also written down a sample of vegetables below if you are making everything from scratch. In terms of baking the eggs, the most important thing to note is the cooking time. Make sure to take out the fritatta from the oven as soon as the eggs set. Overcooking will make the frittata look like a sponge.
