Chef Jamie's Spring Frittata

April 26, 2013

Light and delicious!

Chef Jamie says: There are endless variations on Frittatas. Try chopped tomatoes, chopped broccolini, sautéed sweet onions, spicy jack cheese, fresh mozzarella… any combination to your liking (or what’s in your vegetable bin). I make a different Frittata every week and leave it in the fridge, then warm a slice in the microwave for a quick breakfast or snack.

This recipe makes 4-6 servings.

1 tablespoon butter
1 sweet onion, sliced thin
8 porcini or white mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon basil
1 tablespoon tarragon
2 oz. soft goat cheese
8 large eggs, well beaten with a touch of water added
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 avocado, peeled and diced
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place a 10 inch oven proof skillet over medium heat.  
Add the butter, then the onions. Saute the onions until they are soft and caramelized.  
Add the mushroom slices and herbs.

Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper.  
Pour the eggs over the sautéed vegetables.  
Stir with a wooden spoon until they start to set.  
Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the top of the frittata is dry to the touch.  
This should take about 5 to 10 minutes.  

Gently glide a rubber spatula around the outside edge of the frittata to loosen it.  
Slide the frittata onto a serving plate.  
Garnish with the sliced avocado.

Serve the frittata warm or at room temperature.
