FRITTATA WITH TASSO AND CHEDDAR

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 8-10
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tbs unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 3 tbs chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz. tasso, diced
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

  • In the deep half of a frittata pan over medium heat, melt 2 tbs of the butter. Add the green onions and 2 tbs of the parsley and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. Wipe out the pan with paper towels.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream. Stir in the green onion mixture, the tasso, cheese, salt, and pepper.
  • In the deep half of the frittata pan over medium heat, melt 1 tbs of the butter. Add the egg mixture and cook, using a rubber spatula to gently life the cooked edges and allow the uncooked eggs to flow underneath, 7-10 minutes.
  • In the shallow half of the frittata pan over medium heat, melt the remaining 1/2 tbs of butter. Place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and flip the frittata into the shallow pan. Cook, covered, for 3 minutes. Remove the deep pan and continue cooking until the eggs are set, about 5 minutes more.
  • Gently shake the pan to loosen the frittata, then slide it onto a serving plate. Garnish with the remaining 1 tbs of parsley.
