Smokey Frittata

So after my TOTAL failure last night with the gnocchi I needed something easy to lean back on, thank goodness tonight’s menu consisted of the Frittata.  It is EASY and pleases everyone… yahoo!  This meal was great!!!  We enjoyed the flavor IMMENSELY!!  Give it a go!

6 eggs, whisked
1 small onion, chopped
4oz chopped fresh mushrooms
~4oz chopped, blanched asparagus
2 small tomatoes, chopped
4 oz crumbled feta
4 oz shredded smokey jack cheese (ours came from Farm Country Cheeses – sold at the Fulton Street Farmer’s Market)  THIS STUFF IS GOOD!!!
Dash of salt and pepper
Olive oil

1. preheat oven to 425 FIRST
2. sauté onion in olive oil for ~3mins, then add mushrooms and continue sautéing for another ~5mins
3. add in asparagus and cook for ~3mins, then tomatoes and turn burner to LOW, continue cooking ~3mins
4. sprinkle feta and smokey jack cheese on top of veggies (stir in if you’d like)
5. pour egg mixture over all and simmer on LOW for ~3-4mins, until edges are cooked on the sides
6. place in oven and bake (make sure you have an oven safe pan) for ~12-15 mins, until knife or toothpick come out clean
7. invert on plate, slice and serve

Market Frittata

~ 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped (I forgot to chop mine, but no biggie)
~ 1 cup diced (maybe one inch) asparagus
6 eggs, whisked
¼ cup mozzarella
4oz crumbled feta
1 small tomato, diced
2 small leeks, thinly sliced
~3-4 cloves garlic (or less if you don’t like garlic much), minced, chopped, diced or whatever you prefer – we chopped for this one
olive oil

what I did…
1. heat oven to 425 FIRST – as soon as this frittata is ready it needs to go in
2. whisk eggs, mix in all cheeses
3. boil chopped asparagus for ~3mins drain and set aside
4. in the same pan place oil and leeks/garlic and sauté for ~3mins
5. add in all the spinach and cook for ~2mins, season with salt and pepper as you see fit
6. add in asparagus, cook for ~2 mins
7. toss in tomatoes
8. pour egg mixture over all and allow egg to cook

9. once the edges start to firm up, ~3-4mins put in oven for ~13-15mins… I started with 10, checked with a knife for doneness, then tacked on mins as I saw fit

10. turn upside down, slice and serve
