MAD Hungry MY Way: Desperation Frittata

Posted by

One of the keys to feeding a mad hungry family is finding random ingredients in the pantry or fridge and turning them into a full-fledged meal. We got an email from Gigi Williams who gave us a peak inside her cupboard and her β€œDesperation Frittata”. Check out her amazing dinner and how it came to be below:

"Last week there was a torrential thunderstorm where we live. Β I reached into my cupboard for a key ingredient for the dinner I had planned and it wasn't there... Urgh! Unable to face a trip out in the storm for one ingredient, we had what is called, in our house, Desparation Frittata - whatever is in the fridge which on this occasion was Ham (a nice Niman Ranch Jambon - lucky), Mushrooms, leftover Orchiette with a tomato/pork sausage ragu, (dried) herbs, eggs and cheese."
