Frittata (Italian omelet)


Well, the first time I heard of Frittata was in a sitcom on TV called "Everybody Loves Raymond" which I started watching after I came to US. I didnt give much thought to it as the humour part of the sitcom was way too good hehe ....It was one of my husband's cousin who got me interested. She told me it was really easy to prepare it. I searched on internet to see how it looks and that got me determined to make it. It may not look always the same as the above pic as its not always made in oven. Its made on the same pan, u make omelette. But I wanted a reason to start using my new silicon baking pan. So I made frittata in the oven. And it came out really well as you can see above. Almost looks like a pizza right? ;)
Let me share the recipe: This is for a chicken-brocolli-potato frittata. You can omit chicken if you dont like. But the egg should not be skipped (maybe u can use a substitute, i haven't tried though), else it wont be a frittata (italian "omelette") . The time taken may be more, but worth waiting :)
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup diced potato
  • 3/4 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic (i add more coz i like the taste of garlic in the dish)
  • 1/2 onions diced
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped brocolli
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (you can skip it if you dont have cheese or if you dont like it)
  • 1/4 cup cooked chicken (optional) , you can use cooked ground turkey too if you are on a diet plan to avoid chicken

Method

  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F
  • Cook potato until firm
  • Melt butter in oil
  • Saute garlic, and onion
  • Mix flour, milk, and eggs in a bowl
  • In another bowl, mix potato, garlic, onion, flourmix, mushroom, cheese , and chicken
  • Transfer to baking dish
  • Bake for around 55 minutes till eggs are properly cooked or a knife inserted in the frittata comes out clean

Your frittata is ready!
