I’M THINKING THIS FANCY YAKISOBA FRITTATA SKILLET TOPPED WITH CREME FRAICHE AND CAVIAR IS GOING TO BE THE ANSWER TO YOUR HOLIDAY BRUNCH CHRISTMAS DREAMS COME TRUE.
I was challenged to work with yakisoba noodles from JSLFoods and turn them into a breakfast dish so I got to thinking – how do we make it satisfying, simple, and SPECIAL for the holidays – without a lot of clean up required. Did you know I don’t dig doing dishes?
Yakisoba means ‘pan-fried noodles’ and that’s exactly where the dish starts and ends – in the cast iron pan. They add a nice bite to this frittata and simulate what maybe a thinly sliced potato would do with a lot less work – coupled with the cremini mushrooms, roasted red pepper, caramelized onion, and spinach – in this very savory, Chrismas-y looking dish. The ‘secret sauce’ is using cream cheese whisked with oat milk instead of heavy cream or whole milk to give this a luxurious mouthfeel with a lot less heaviness. I used non-dairy cream cheese myself, but feel free to use what you like.
Topped with a crown of creme fraiche and whitefish caviar just makes it oh-so-extra. It’s also a great portable, macro-balanced starter to the day, goes great with a salad for a mid-day or evening meal.
Nutrient-dense and delish!
