|I love individual portions, I find them very elegant|
they are awesome in a buffet
Frittatas are very much like omelets, except they are cooked to set in the oven or by the steam generated under a lid. Like omelets, they include vegetables, cream or milk, and cheese. The choice of vegetables is totally yours, so you can choose any that you like, and the same applies to all the additions, including the type of cheese, olives, meats...etc. Frittatas and omelets are great for using any leftover vegetables too.
|Frittatas can be made and served|
in a skillet
This is my favourite Zucchini Frittata recipe, but feel free to change around with the vegetables and other additions to reach your own favourite recipe.
8 large eggs
1 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup Parmesan Riggiano cheese, grated
1 cup grated zucchini
1 small onion, chopped
12 Kalamata olives, pitted
3 tbsp light cream
1/2 cup cubed soft bread (your favourite bread)
Salt & Black pepper to taste
In a large bowl, place all ingredients, except olives, onions and bread. Beat all with a fork, until incorporated. Add the bread and push inside the mixture to get soaked.
If going for individual portions, grease the muffin holes and set aside.
In a skillet, sprinkle Olive oil, add the onions and sweat over high heat, till soft, but not browned. Remove from heat, add to the egg mixture and mix to incorporate. If you are cooking the Frittata in the skillet, then pour the egg mixture, and cook on stove top till the almost set, you can then cover with a lid and cook over low heat, till the top has totally set. Sprinkle olives on top and serve hot.
If you are going for the muffin tin, then divide the egg mixture among the holes, and bake in 350F oven for about 15-18 minutes, or till the eggs are set and no juices remain.
Turn the frittatas and arrange them on serving platter, place an olive on top of each portion, and serve them hot.
