Saturday we left the office rather early to get up to Jana and John's for a boat ride and dinner. And, we wanted to get home at a reasonable hour on Sunday since there was the little matter of the home opener. Peyton vs Eli. BTW - did you see the Direct TV ad where Eli stuffs Peyton in the closet? It's worth finding on the internet if you've not seen it. At any rate, we wanted to get to the office early on Sunday. That meant finding a recipe that's super easy to make. Again, this one was perfect.
What did we think? We loved it. I didn't have prosciutto so used some genoa salami. I'd probably do the same again since the flavor was so wonderful. I don't have an ovenproof skillet other than cast iron so chose to use a lid and cook the frittata on the stovetop. It worked perfectly. All in all, I can't think of a thing I'd change. The only problem with this recipe is that you really need a garden-fresh tomato so making it in the winter will be a bit of a problem. Unless you want to use grape tomatoes...
Prosciutto Mozzarella Frittata
5 large eggs
2 T milk
1 T freshly grated Romano
1 T chopped basil
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 medium shallot, finely minced
1 small-medium tomato diced
4 thin slices prosciutto, cut into strips (or about 4 slices of genoa salami)
4 oz fresh mozzarella, cubed (or about a dozen small mozzarella balls)
Beat the eggs
with the milk, Romano cheese, basil, salt and pepper.
In an 8" skillet, saute on medium heat the shallot and salami in the olive oil just until the shallot has softened.
Add the diced tomato and saute just until it's softened.
Then pour in the eggs.
Add the mozzarella cubes or balls.
DO NOT STIR! Cover with a lid and cook until the eggs are done.
