I understand that by mid-September, the texture of fall is within the air. The temperatures are dropping, the bushes are simply starting to vary, and we’ve had months of summer time produce. And but, right here I’m, sharing a tomato recipe. I truly discover this time of yr magical. It’s the time when summer time and fall produce overlap. It’s additionally the time after I get to make recipes with summer time produce that use a sizzling oven.
I stick pretty near my authentic frittata recipe. I’ve discovered there are lots of methods and proportions to make a frittata however I like mine a bit extra on the egg-heavy facet (assume only one large, open-faced omelette). Through the years I’ve modified my fats to make use of heavy cream versus entire milk. I discover it actually creates the proper, clean texture.
Additionally, when you’ve got leftovers you’ll be able to reheat the frittata within the oven or you’ll be able to flip the frittata right into a tasty grilled-cheese sandwich.
Summer season or Fall Greens
As talked about, I’m dwelling my greatest late-summer life proper now. Nevertheless, as I’ve talked about earlier than in different frittata recipes, it’s one of many final base-recipes. Frittatas can actually assist most seasonal produce. Prepared to leap into fall? Strive including roasted or steamed squash, candy potatoes, or greens.
I additionally like to prime frittatas with salads. Strive a easy arugula salad dressed with a French dressing. The arugula will barely wilt on-top, creating the proper cooked/recent mixture.
Grains (and GF swaps)
Just like the produce, grains are interchangable. I often use leftover grains from dinner or fast cooking grains like bulgur or quinoa. I may also say, I like grains to be a giant a part of this frittata. Nevertheless, you possibly can simply back-off and use solely half of a cup. This manner the grains are extra of a associate and fewer of a star.

- Sprinkle the bulgur into the egg combination after which place the tomatoes on prime (both haphazardly or neatly- it’s as much as you). End with the feta proper earlier than you place the frittata within the oven.
