Serves four.

Yields one 10-inch frittata.

  • by from Fine Cooking
    Issue 96

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated smoked mozzarella
  • 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 10 oz. frozen artichoke hearts, thawed, and roughly chopped (1-2/3 cups)
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and mix in the cheese.

Heat the olive oil in a well-seasoned 10-inch cast-iron skillet (or ovenproof nonstick skillet) over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until golden around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the artichoke hearts, parsley, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

Remove from the heat and add the egg mixture. Stir just until the vegetables and herbs are distributed evenly. Transfer to the oven and bake until the eggs are set and firm to the touch, 13 to 14 minutes. Let the frittata rest in the pan for 2 minutes.

Run a knife or spatula around the edge of the pan to loosen the frittata and slide it out onto a cutting board. Slice the frittata into wedges and serve hot or at room temperature.

Didn't care for the flavor of this frittata.

This frittata is quick and easy. After a full day in the fridge, my artichokes were still not entirely thawed. I finished thawing them in the microwave and then patted them with paper towels to remove most of the moisture. I loved the finished product, but my husband ate it with a stoic frown (and ketchup and added salt). I think it may have been the unfamiliar taste of the smoked mozzarella that bothered him.

Great...very nice, sorta medium to thin in thickness and easy to prepare and cuts evenly for serving nicely too. Needs just a bit more salt & pepper.
