Okay, I'll admit it: I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon, and wowzers, am I in love! I've decided to prove (to myself, mostly) how versatile this culinary invention really is, and I'm highlighting my findings in a segment I am now calling #instantpotallthethings. First up, brunch, of course! Here's my take on a leek and wild mushroom frittata a la instant pot.
During last Friday night's grocery run (hello, pay day!), I discovered that Aldi is now carrying sliced wild mushrooms (a blend of crimini, shiitake, and oyster) to the tune of $2.69/4-ounce basket. I know, it's unreal. I bought two baskets, and while wandering the rest of the store, decided I'd like to experiment with them in the IP. Thus, the leek and wild mushroom frittata a la instant pot was born.
Armed with this info from Bon Appetite on how to make the sickest frittata ever, and this recipe for instant pot cooking times, I set out to make a lusciously creamy egg cake, chock-full of cow's milk goodness (sorry, dairy-free readers). As a good Catholic girl, I am determined to be ready for Meatless Mondays (and Fridays) this Lent, and I'm sure glad I've got this one in my arsenal now!
