Fritatta’s are easy! I know they sound fancy but they aren’t. Let me walk you thru it.
Crack some eggs in a bowl (I normally use 2-3 per person)
Chop some herbs (this time I used some basil and thyme I had in the fridge)
Chop some deli turkey (I had some extra I wanted to use up but you can use anything really. Have some leftover chicken or bacon? use it)
So crack your eggs in a bowl and scramble them up. Add in your herbs and turkey. Add some cheese. Most of the time I will add in some parmesan but this time I am going to add the cheese mid-way. Please hold.
Take a non-stick pan and add some butter or margarine, etc. just enough to coat.
Add in your egg mixture but don’t stir. Did you hear me…DON’T STIR.
It’s gonna look something like this.
You will see the egg mixture start to set on the bottom and the sides and that’s a good thing.
So at this point…I added some goat cheese (I know I know again w/ the goat cheese) and turned on the broiler.
So the reason why we turned the broiler on is now that the bottom is cooking, we need to cook the top. There are some fancy fritatta pans out there that are like two pans locked together. I think these are lame and unnecessary. Just my opinion. Here is a photo.
I put my fritatta in the oven on broil and just keep any eye on it until it turns golden brown on the top. I chop it into four pieces and serve it up. Really an easy breakfast and a great way to use up what you have in your fridge.
