Garden Frittata Recipe

Real Restaurant Breakfast Recipe


A fresh from the Garden Frittata Recipe makes a truly delicious and nutritious meal.

It is wonderful to live in a farming valley and have easy access to freshly grown, hand-picked, organic vegetables and herbs.

I make use of this blessing in many ways, including this restaurant recipe.

Preparation time: 25 minutes. Serves 4.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon each of butter and peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard or coarse ground mustard
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, cored and diced
  • 1/3 cup white or red onion, diced (or 4 green onions, white part and tender green part, chopped)
  • 1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup broccoli, blanched and chopped
  • 2 cups spinach, blanched and well drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • Prepare all vegetables and grate the cheddar cheese (or purchase grated cheddar if you are short on time)
  • Heat a 10-12 inch pan over moderate heat
  • While the pan is heating, whip the eggs with the mustard in a mixing bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • When the pan is hot enough to make a drop of water sizzle, add the butter/oil combination
  • When the butter stops foaming, add the peppers, onions and then the mushrooms and saute' for 2 minutes
  • Add broccoli, spinach, garlic and herbs and heat for about one minute
  • Add the eggs and turn the heat to low and let sit without stirring until the eggs are set underneath (to save time, lift the edges of the eggs with a rubber spatula and allow the liquid egg to run underneath)
  • Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, if desired
  • Sprinkle cheese on top and finish under a heated broiler about 3-4 inches below the heat
  • Remove from heat when the frittata is puffed up and golden
  • Garnish with tomato and then cut the frittata into wedges
  • Plate the frittata wedges and garnish each piece with a dollop of salsa
