lazy and quick

Frittatas are my lazy way out of any breakfast situation. Unexpected, or even expected guests at breakfast have often if not always been fed frittatas in my domain. In fact I like frittatas, mostly, with a little hot mustard and a mixed green salad for lunch, but thats another post. Frittatas are like omelettes except they stay flat and are finished under the broiler. I was in a big hurry to skeedadle everyone out of the house today, the pup had a 'mom' day and banana had a certification to take and I have 'things' to do so it was a whirlwind of activity this morning, frittata was in order.



I cut some large onion rings from a crispy, spicy, yellow onion and I included a few slices from a large boiled potato in a skillet while I beat the eggs. Nicely browned and caramelized I poured in the eggs and sprinkled cooked bacon and fresh thyme over the top. I let this side cooked covered until lightly set, flipped it with a brutal flick of my wrist and grated a little aged gouda and sprinkled on some chevre, yes I still have some - I am almost done with that behemouth.



Lightly browned and a little puffy I cut it into wedges and served it with tomatoes and crusty baguette and butter - how can you beat it? You almost want a glass of wine to go with this tasty breakfast and if I could take a nap I would have had the wine!

I have a version of that sometimes for breakfast that I make for myself. Yes, I do!

Yours looks delicious! I meant to write that before.

Fritattas rock. So quick and easy with whatever's at hand. As long as you have eggs, you're good to go.

Anette said...

You know the importance of good and colorful food!! Your meals are food for the belly, for the taste buds, for the smelling sense, for the eyes and for the soul. What else is there? You can probably heare it as well.. in the sound of munching delight and crunching of the vegetables...

That looks fabulous to me! I've never tried one but I really should.

maggie said...

Yes, small world—and small neighborhood! I bought the behemoth goat cheese too (gotta love the e. village cheese store) and am planning to do goat cheese cheesecake. We'll see how it goes.

So...you start cooking in a frying pan and THEN put it under the broiler? I'm confused.

:(

The one and only REAL Meg Kelso said...

Oh...and Emilene was right...fritattas IS fun to say. The next time I'm drinking I'll have to say it some more.
