Goat Cheese Frittata
A frittata is a baked omelet – far easier than a normal omelet because it skips that pesky step of flipping it. To make a really good frittata you should have a large (8-inch) well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Be sure to not overcook your frittata under the broiler – slightly undercooked is better, really!
Prep time: 30 minutes
6 Lunds & Byerlys Organic Large Eggs
2 Lunds & Byerlys Organic Large Egg Whites
½ teaspoon Lunds & Byerlys Dried Basil
¼ teaspoon Lunds & Byerlys Dried Oregano
½ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons California Olive Ranch Olive Oil
2 tablespoons shallots, minced
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
½ cup red bell pepper, diced
½ cup zucchini, small dice
1 cup asparagus, woody stems removed, cut into 1-inch pieces
¼ cup Montchevré Plain Goat Cheese, large crumbles
- Position rack in upper third of oven; heat broiler to medium high.
- Whisk eggs, herbs, salt, pepper and water in a medium bowl.
- Heat oil in an 8” cast iron skillet over medium heat.
- Add shallots and garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add bell pepper, zucchini and asparagus and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes to release flavors.
- Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cook, lifting the edges of the frittata to allow the uncooked egg to flow underneath, until the bottom is light golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Dot the top of the frittata with the cheese, transfer the pan to the oven and broil until puffy and lightly golden on top, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and cut into 6 pieces.
