Made a fritata this AM.
It is made with eggs, bacon, broccoli, potatoes and bread with some tomato slices and parm cheese on top.
Just precook your potatoes and broccoli. and put them in a oiled oven pan.
In a bowl add eggs, chopped bacon, salt pepper, herbs and spices if desired. A fist full of cubed bread(stale is best) and a teaspoon of baking powder.
Mix well and set aside till the bread gets soft and wet.
Then put the egg mixture on top of the of the veg in the oven pan, top with cheese and tomatoes if desired. Put into a 35o degrees oven until it rises and a tooth pick comes out clean.
Good stuff......too hell with omelets, too much trouble. and you dont need a non-stick pan to make them.
you can also make a lot for more people with out the added labor of making each omelet. Just use a bigger pan and more eggs.
Another good thing about this dish is you can make it with eggs and just about anything that is in the fridge. You can use rice, tortillas, even pasta. It is great with tomato sauce on them or gravy.
That is not a frittata its a casserole. A frittata is started in a skillet on the stove and finished in the oven. Although what you have made looks and I bet tastes very good.
Dont fear non-stick pans. They are not a crutch like some would like you to believe. There are plenty of "Real" Chefs that use them. The best place to get them is your local restaurant supply store. They are cheap there and tend to outlast the more expensive department store brands.
Not trying to step on anyones toes, just my opinion. SWMBO says I have plenty of them.
