Frittata

Ingredients:

6 eggs

4 scallions or a bunch of garlic scallions

1 bunch/bag chard, kale, spinach, nettles, or arugula

1-2 Tbsp of parsley

1-2 tsp rosemary (use less if using dried rosemary from Goldthread Herbal Farm)

1 Tbsp coursely ground mustard

2 Tbsp butter or oil for sautéing

½-1 cup cheese to crumble or grate from Sangha Farm or Cricket Creek Farm

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1.) Heat oil/butter in pan and add scallions and greens. Saute until tender. Pour off any extra liquid in the pan.

2.) Crack the eggs and beat them lightly with the herbs and mustard, adding a splash of milk if you’d like. Grind some pepper into the egg combination.

3.) Preheat broiler. Add the veggie mixture into the eggs and then add the cheese. Turn your pan to medium heat. Pour egg mixture into pan and stir a few times. Reduce heat to low and cook until the eggs are firm most of the way through. You can add some additional cheese on top at this time.

4.) Place pan in oven and broil for 3-5 minutes depending on the heat of your broiler. Remove and cut into pie slices.

Variations:

  • Omit 2 eggs and add 1/3 cup of yogurt for a tangy flavor
  • Saute ½ lb lamb sausage from Leyden Glen or Crabapple Farm or pork sausage from Mockingbird Farm and add to vegetables
  • Use any other combination of veggies: broccoli and potatoes are delicious in frittatas
  • Add ½-1 cup cooked cannellini beans or garbanzo beans to the frittata
  • Add 1 tsp garam masala to your frittata and replace the rosemary with cilantro
  • Add chopped basil in with other herbs when it's in season
  • Add more of everything if you're feeding a bigger crowd
