Anyone else super into making up frittata recipes lately? Just me? Ok no worries. This recipe is easy, which we all need after surviving 2020. Believe me when I say you can add anything to it and it’ll be delicious. The trick to frittatas is that they’re secretly omelettes, just without the flip. Here me out:
The trick to a frittata is to finish it off in the oven. No flip needed! Here’s what you’ll need to make my recipe:
- 6 eggs whisked and seasoned with salt and pepper
- 1 finely chopped shallot
- 1 handful of parsley, finely chopped
- Goat cheese – as much as you like, crumbled
- Canadian bacon/ham – as much as you like, chopped. I did about 3 round pieces
- Butter/ghee (to oil the pan)
- Preheat your oven to 350 F. At the same time, heat up an oven safe skillet on the stove and melt some butter/ghee. Let’s go with medium heat.
- Once skillet is hot and butter is melted, add in your shallots and allow to soften. Add in Canadian bacon/ham after about 2 mins and let both begin to brown.
- Time to add in the whisked and seasoned eggs. spread out your shallots and meat, then pour your eggs over top and allow to cover the bottom of the pan.
- Top with crumbled goat cheese, and parsley. We want the bottom to get nice and brown.
- At this point the middle should still be gooey but the edges should be easily moved with a spatula, so it’s time to toss it in the oven to cook the top! Watch the top, anywhere from 5-10 mins and it should be cooked and starting to turn brown.
- Remove from oven and let cool. At this point you could whip up a delicious side salad and some French vinaigrette, or just toast a roll.
- When slightly cooled, top with a little extra parsley and slice your frittata like pie. Plate with your side salad, or roll (or both) and dig in!
The flavor here really comes from the shallots (and the butter/ghee but we all knew that) so when altering this recipe – go for it! But maybe consider keeping the shallots or adding a white onion if you can’t find one. My tip is to always cook and brown the shallots/meat first and then add in the egg after. No one likes a chewy piece of meat in an omelette. This method makes sure you have color and flavor. Enjoy! #lifesabeacham
