When in doubt, make a frittata. This versatile dish adapts to any seasonal vegetables (or leftovers) you have on hand and can be served as a filling breakfast or quick weeknight dinner. One of our teammates even subs out veggies for leftover pasta, prosciutto and parmesan for a crispy and heartier twist on a traditional bake. Tag @getequalparts in your frittata creation for a chance to be featured on our Instagram. Enjoy!
Work Time: 15 Minutes
Hang Time: 10
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 zucchini, halved and cut crosswise into thin strips
- 1 small handful of fresh herbs (e.g. basil, chives, parsley)
- ¼ tsp. dried rosemary
- ¼ tsp. dried thyme
- 1 red onion or 2 shallots, diced
- 1 cup of sweet corn kernels (about 1 ear)
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- ¾ tsp. kosher salt
- 5 large eggs
- 4 large egg whites
- ¼ tsp. black pepper
- ¼ cup of minced pancetta, bacon, or prosciutto (optional)
- ¼ cup of parmesan, pecorino, or goat cheese
Preheat your oven to 400º Fahrenheit. While you wait, heat oil in your Essential Pan over medium-low heat.
Add zucchini, onion (or shallots), corn, and salt to the pan. Sauté until vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Remember, the vegetables will cook more in the oven, so no need to spend too much time sauteeing.
Next, add garlic, salt, rosemary, and thyme, and stir 30 seconds. Arrange vegetables evenly in pan. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, egg whites and pepper in your medium Mixing Bowl to combine.
Pour the egg mixture over your vegetables and shake pan to distribute evenly. Let it cook on the stovetop for a few minutes over medium heat. When the edges are set, top with cheese and place in oven.
Cook for about 10-12 minutes in the oven. Remove from the oven and let cool about five minutes in the pan.
Invert onto a plate – this should be easy with your non-stick Essential Pan – and then flip right side up onto a second plate. Slice and serve immediately!
