Yes, this is actually my picture!!!!! Yesterday, we couldn't decide what we wanted for breakfast....eggs over, scrambled, not poached....and I thought about a nice tomato and cheese frittata..never had tried to make was delicious.
You can choose your filings much like an omelette - sausage, bacon, pancetta ...vegetables....CHEESE! I had some great fontina cheese, cherry tomatoes and I added a red pepper. This recipe serves about 5.
9-10 eggs
2 tbl heavy cream
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbl olive oil
1 tbl unsalted butter
4 ounces shredded fontina cheese
1/4 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup diced red pepper
Preheat broiler
In a medium ovenproof saute pan heat olive oil and butter. Add vegetables. If using a meat product, saute that first until cook. Remove from the pan and add vegetables with an additional tbl of butter. Cook the vegetables until soft.
Whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables (and meat should be returned to pan). Mix and top with the shredded cheese. Cover and cook over low-medium heat until the frittata is almost set. Uncover and place pan under the broiler until cheese is melted, the eggs are set and it is golden brown. Let rest for about 2-3 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve with a nice artisan toast and a small bowl of mixed fruit. Fabulous and very easy. Happy Sunday.
