Frittata makes a great addition to Sunday brunch or light dinner. Here is how to make frittata for Sunday brunch for your clan:
1) Cook the vegetables/meat:
Whatever ingredients you choose to use, start by sauteing them in butter or olive oil or vegetable oil in the base of the pan. Most fresh vegetables lend themselves to frittatas as do meats e.g. sausages, bacon or left over chicken (especially roasted).
You could skip the above step and use raw vegetables e.g. grated courgettes, grated zucchini, asparagus (tough ends trimmed, spears steamed until tender & cooled)
2) Add the eggs:
Add beaten eggs, season with salt and pepper and you could add some chopped fresh herbs e.g. parsley on top of he meat and vegetables. If you are using cheese add it here. Allow to cook for a few minutes until frittata begins to set-up.
3) Cover up:
When it starts to set, cover pan with shallow pan and allow to cook for a few minutes.
4) Flip & Finish:
Hold both pans with their handles interlocking together to make it easier to flip, it is always intimidating to me lol. After flipping cook on for a few minutes so that the flipped side cooks.
Slide onto a plate or platter and cut into wedges to serve.
A simple green salad makes a great light accompaniment.
- 1) You can finish cooking the frittata in the oven after the eggs are set around the edges – bake for 15 minutes. 2) Raid your pantry add spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh herbs even potatoes 3) I used 12 eggs and asparagus, feta cheese (you could use cheddar), cherry tomatoes to feed my clan (served 8 people) lol
