I make frittatas all the time!  My family love them.  Its so quick, easy and cheap to make them!  My secret key ingredient is ‘Garlicky Stuff’!  Basically its garlic, parsley and olive oil.  I blend all 3 together and add to my frittatas.  I never used to make frittatas but since I discovered this garlicky stuff – I make them all the time.  I usually use leftovers or stuff thats going out of date soon or vegetables that are just about to go off. 

The difference between an omelette and a frittata is that the filling for an omelette sits on the top of the egg mixture and then its flipped in half – the filling for a frittata is mixed through the egg mixture 😉  You learn something new everyday!

INGREDIENTS

  1. Eggs!  Now – I usually use about 7 or 8 small ones but you can use as many as you want – if depends on the size of your pan too – cos you want this frittata to be ‘taller’ than an omelette that you havent flipped in half yet.
  2. Milk – I would say half a cup to 3/4 of a cup
  3. 3 slices of smoked bacon or half a smoked sausage – (cos thats what I had left over) – slice into smallish pieces (is smallish a word? lol)
  4. half a red onion thinly sliced or white onion or some shallots or spring onions – you decide!
  5. handful or 2 of frozen, sliced mixed peppers
  6. Garlicky stuff – judge for yourself – I like about 6 dessert spoons of the stuff! (See above on how to make!)
  7. Cheese – any kind – as much/less as you like

METHOD

  • Put half the garlicky stuff in a frying pan and put on a medium heat
  • Add peppers, onion, ham and fry until cooked
  • Mix eggs and milk and then pour into frying pan
  • Mix through half the cheese and start bringing the edges of the frittata to the centre as it cooks – dont do this too often as all the filling will end up in the middle – move the filling around evenly and add more garlicky stuff if you want!
  • Once almost cooked – top with more or little cheese and then put into a pre heated oven (say – 200 degrees C) until cheese is brown/bubbling
  • Slide onto a plate and then START EATING!

I use ‘Garlicky Stuff’ with everything!  I will post a recipe and photo soon 🙂
