Firecracker Frittata

Get it?? I hope so.

This is just a quick post because I have some 4th parties to attend and you probably do as well (assuming you’re in the U.S. of course). Anyway, I came up with a fun idea for a quick frittata a few days ago. There’s actually not much too it and the photo above pretty much shows everything you need to know to make it.

Here’s the recipe though!

Firecracker Frittata

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 Cup cream or milk
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 3 ounces goat cheese
  • Cherry tomatoes (you obviously just need a few)
  • Assorted peppers.  You could use all the same color, but I like the varied colors.

Directions

1) Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Whip your eggs together with your cream and salt and pepper.

2) Add the butter to an oven safe pan over medium-high heat.  I used an oven safe 12 inch non-stick skillet, but you can use any pan that can go from stovetop to oven.  Obviously, the smaller pan you use the thicker your frittata will be.

3) When your butter is melted, add your eggs and cook for just 30 seconds until they start to set.  Then take them off the heat and dot the eggs with goat cheese.  Festively arrange the peppers and tomatoes to look like firecrackers!

4) Finish the dish in the oven.  It should take no more than 10 minutes to set up.

5) Serve immediately.  If you use a good non-stick pan, you can slide the entire frittata out of the pan onto a cutting board for serving.

I ate mine with some hot sauce, but I guess the american thing to do would be ketchup?

Anyway, have a great 4th of July everyone!
