ITALIEN STYLE HAM AND CHEESE OMLETTE / FRITTATA

IMG_2580There are no rules or regulations in making a Frittata, only your imagination!

The traditional one, I grew up watching my Mother make, was, Potato and Onion! yummm! that was good!  She would cut up the potato into really small chunks and pan fry in a bit of olive oil, untill  golden brown on all sides.  She would then add chopped onion, sweat them out and add the eggs.  The exciting part was when she would grab a plate, put it upside down on top of the frying pan and attempt to flip it over!  And flip it over she did, to my wild surprise, lol!  How amazing, to watch, over and over again, each time as amazing as the first!  When it was ready, she slid it on to a pretty plate and sprinkled it with Parmesan Cheese and on to the table it went!

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, you choose.

Add Olive Oil to pan and heat to med

Watch temp and make sure the oil does not get too hot and smoke!

Add the mixture and reduce heat to med low

With a spatula, make holes within the mixture so the liquid firms up and coagulates

This shouldn’t take long, you do not want to cook the bottom to the point of being rubbery

 

 

IMG_2584***Please make sure there is no liquid left but some slimy stuff on top!!!***

If you don’t feel confident, please turn your oven to Broil and finish off on the top rack for a couple of min!!!

This is the fun part!  Slide a plate, big enough to cover the pan, on top

 

 

IMG_2585You may want to wear long sleeves the first time, just in case!

Put your hand firmly on top, (move over to the counter or sink) and 1, 2, 3, FLIP!

This needs to be a gentle but quick motion! Don’t stop half way!
