Heat the oven to 350°F. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the whole milk, flour (don’t worry if the flour forms small lumps), salt, and several grinds of pepper. Combine the chorizo, onions, kale, and pimentón with the egg mixture, folding them in gently.
Wipe out the skillet, add the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil and return it to medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture, spreading everything evenly. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the eggs are set about 1 inch in from the sides of the pan, 8 to 12 minutes.Uncover the pan and transfer the frittata to the oven. Bake until the top is puffed and completely set, 15 to 25 minutes more.
Remove the pan from the oven and run a rubber spatula around the sides of the pan to loosen the frittata. Slip it out of the pan and onto a cutting board. Let the frittata cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Serve with fresh Mesclun Greens with Classic Sherry Vinaigrette.
Yummy dish! I substituted spinach, since I didn't have kale, and I added about 1/2 cup of diced cotija cheese. It was delicious. Also, I added 1 tsp. minced garlic. All in all, I found the dish slightly too salty. Next time I'll only add 1/2 tsp. salt, as there is salt in the chorizo and in the cheese. Thanks for a great recipe!
Woke my fiance up with the smells of these ingredients one morning and he could not get enough of this. I recommend making no changes to this recipe - it's fantastic as is!
This has become my favorite frittata recipe. I have also added shredded smoked gouda, and have usually sauteed the kale instead of boiling it. Delicious!
