1 6 Easy Steps to Create Your Own Frittata on Tue Sep 17, 2013 12:24 pm


I love frittatas and I saw this in Parade Mag on Sunday. I just love the way it prompts you to be inventive when making one.

6 Easy Steps to Create Your Own Frittata
Parade Magazine, September 14, 2013
Mix one up with whatever’s in your pantry using this simple formula.

1. Eggs
Beat 8 eggs in a large bowl. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Now whisk in …

2. Vegetables
Add up to 2 veggies (your favorites, or suggestions below) to eggs; use 1½ cups total.
• Sautéed mushrooms
• Frozen corn
• Chopped tomatoes
• Roasted sliced potatoes
• Sautéed onions or leeks
• Roasted broccoli
• Roasted red peppers

3. Protein
Add 1; use ¾ cup.
• Chopped smoked salmon
• Cooked sausage crumbles
• Canned beans
• Diced ham or bacon

4. Cheese
Add 1 or 2; use up to 1 cup total (unless noted).
• Grated Parmesan
• Crumbled blue cheese or feta (use up to ½ cup)
• Grated cheddar
• Diced mozzarella
• Sour cream or ricotta

5. Herbs
Add 1; use up to ¾ cup, chopped. For stronger herbs, like rosemary or dill, use 2 Tbsp, chopped.
• Basil
• Chives
• Cilantro
• Tarragon
• Mint

6. Flavor Boost
Add 1; use 1 Tbsp.
• Dijon mustard
• Capers or tapenade
• Grated citrus zest
• Sriracha or pesto

Warm 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat in a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet. Add egg mixture and immediately pull set edges toward center to allow uncooked egg to run underneath. Cook until edges set again, 1 to 2 minutes, then bake in a preheated 350°F oven until top is just set, about 15 minutes; do not overcook. Let cool 5 minutes in pan before inverting onto a plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Also try these four great frittata variations:
Asparagus and Gruyère Frittata
Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Frittata
Frittata with Pancetta and Potatoes
Lidia Bastianich’s Tomato, Pepper, Bread & Ricotta Frittata
