Preparation
STEP 1

Cook vegetables in butter. Season with salt and pepper.

STEP 2

In a bowl add eggs, milk, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper (and cooked bacon, ham or sausage if using). Beat well until fluffy.

STEP 3

Pour egg mixture over cooked vegetables. Stir gently, and add fresh herbs if using, and then top with shredded cheese.

STEP 4

Start cooking on stove (if using cast iron pan) until just beginning to set, about 5 minutes, then transfer to broiler for 5 more minutes. Will puff slightly and feel firm to the touch when done.

Options

Almost any vegetables or cheeses work for a frittata. Use what you have or what you love! Frittatas can be made a variety of ways. Stove top is great using a well-seasoned cast iron skillet, then finished under the broiler. In the oven you can either use a well buttered baking dish (8x8 for the recipe size) or even in well-greased muffin tins! If cooking in baking dish or muffin tin add egg mixture to vegetables then bake at 350˚F for about 15 minutes until set. Delicious eaten on its own or with a salad and crunchy bread.
