A Lovely Frittata

Frittata

When I am running close on time for breakfast – or supper! – a frittata is a quick and easy meal.  It is one of the easiest recipes I make and can be altered to use what you have on hand.  My husband loves mushrooms in his!  Instead of mozzarella use cheddar cheese!  Add a few olives!

Tomato and Green Onion Frittata

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 small green onions, sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small tomatoes, cubed
  • 6 eggs
  • fresh thyme
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cubed

Preheat oven to broil.  Whisk eggs in bowl and add fresh thyme leaves, salt and pepper.  Melt butter in skillet over medium high heat.  Add sliced green onions and saute for just a moment.   Add cubed tomatoes to skillet and immediately add egg mixture.  Let cook for a few minutes.  Run a spatula under the top portion of the egg in skillet to see if it is beginning to brown.  When golden brown, remove skillet from heat and sprinkle cubed mozzarella on top.  Put under broiler until cheese is melted and top is starting to brown.  Serve with good bread – and a salad if you are having supper!  Makes four servings.
