My Sicilian grandmother made this with green beans and potatoes on Sunday night as the tomato gravy and meatballs from lunch became insufficient to feed me and my 12 first cousins. She called it froscia, her Sicilian word for frittata. When I was a hungry young man on the island of Ibiza, I was introduced to the Spanish interpretation they called tortilla. It was their food of the day. I then found it in every tapas bar I visited, Done with potatoes, onion and garlic. My grandmother, then my mother and then me always flipped it using the plate method but return it to the skillet to finish cooking the other side. Years later I was introduced to the oven finishing method dispute the number of times I burned my hand on the 350 degree handle. My favorite is fresh Romana tomatoes and asparagus with Romano and fresh basil.

This was great and I laughed out loud while I read the instructions. We had just picked some wild oyster mushrooms off a tree by our house and after making a risotto featuring them last night, I decided to try and frittata today. I just googled 'how to make a frittata' and this was the first post a read. So yeah, we're super casual like that and also enjoyed ours with wild foraged mushrooms (and some other store-foraged veggies). Thanks so much!

I did this earlier today. Sautéed pancetta and shallots; added fresh, chopped kale. Whisked 4 eggs, 4 egg whites, garlic powder and S/P and added that. Topped with all the leftover cheese in my fridge - lite feta, lite mozza and the end of a parmesan wedge - and stuck it under the broiler for one minute. Delicious with my morning coffee and a bright, sliced orange. nom-nom-nom!!!

This looks delicious and I can never seem to successfully make a wonderful fritatta. It just occured to me that it takes a good seasoned cast iron skillet which is to heavy for me to lift anymore. I will try this with my stainless hoping it will clean up well. I wish we could get fiddleheads in our tiny town, but it looks like I will have to grown my own. Thanks for a great recipe and how to!

I had forgotten all about making frittatas, used to do it all the time. Thank you! Did you guys turn off the heat when you threw the eggs in with the veggies and let the residual heat cook the eggs?

Glad you liked it! We actually left the heat on while it set. How do you normally make them?
