Breakfast is always a must in our home and one of our staples is a Frittata. A Frittata is an Italian way to use up leftover ingredients and to make a quick meal or snack. Unlike an American omelet, they're not usually eaten at breakfast. In fact, they are probably eaten more often as a snack or as a portable sandwich for a road trip or train ride. Here's a recipe for a fool proof frittata from Extra Virgen.
Frittata with Scallions
Ingredients:2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 bunch scallions, sliced
8 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions:Heat a medium-size saute pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the butter foams, saute scallions until soft and season with salt and pepper. Let cool slightly.
Add eggs, milk, and Parmesan cheese to a large bowl and whisk well to combine. Add the sauteed scallions and blend.
Heat a 14-inch nonstick pan over medium heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter to melt. Once hot and foaming, add the egg mixture, do not stir, and turn heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and continue to cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until firm.
