Whether it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner, we both love a good fritatta. Many times we take what is in the frig and add it to the ingredients we had planned. It's always delicious! —Tom and Anita Morgan

eggs (preferrably from pasture raised chickens)

In This Recipe
In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, black pepper and crumbled feta cheese together and set aside.
Cut the lox into thin strips about 1 inch long.
Lightly oil a 10” cast iron pan on sides and bottom over medium-low heat. Add onion and jalapeno and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add the garlic, salmon and capers and cook another 2 minutes or until garlic just starts to get clear.
Reduce to low heat and add the egg mixture stirring until the eggs cook on the bottom and sides.
Place in a pre-heated broiler about 4 inches below the element. Cook until eggs are cooked on top, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove hot iron pan from oven and place on hot pad or range until cool enough to eat. Cut fritatta into quarters and place on warmed plates. Garnish with chopped parsley, parsley sprigs or chives. Serve with garlic bread, salt, fresh ground pepper and Tabasco sauce.
