Specialty Recipe


6 eggs
1/2 cup light cream (half & half)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons Chives
1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup shredded potato (frozen hash browns work fine) or 1 medium red potato, peeled and cut into thin slices.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Whisk together eggs, cream, seasonings. Stir in half of the cheeses. In a nonstick 9" by 10" skillet, heat oil and spread potatoes over the bottom; turn after five minutes (they should be lightly browned) and cook another 5 minutes.

Add egg mixture, sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until the top is nicely browned and the frittata has puffed up. Cut into wedges to serve.

Serves: 6

This is a versatile basic recipe that can be treated a number of different ways.:

Pepper Frittata
Add to the egg mixture: 1 small sweet green pepper, diced and 1 small sweet red pepper, diced and lightly sautéd in butter.

Onion Frittata
“Melt” a large chopped Spanish onion and add to eggs before cooking.

Frittata Napolitana

Frittata Florentine
