Roasted Vegetable Frittata


I came home, quickly chopped some veggies and tossed them into a roasting pan, worked on cleaning out the kitchen (we're renovating - more on that later), and then voila! Dinner was ready. And it was delicious. Possibly too delicious since we definitely ate the entire thing. But YUM! Absolutely a make-again.


Roasted Vegetable Frittata
Emeril Lagasse

6 eggs
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup roasted potatoes -- cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 cup roasted or grilled red pepper -- chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup roasted or grilled zucchini -- chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup roasted mushrooms -- halved
2 cloves roasted garlic -- sliced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1 small shallot -- minced

1. Preheat the broiler.

2. In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and water. Add potatoes, red pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper. Fold in 1/4 cup Asiago cheese. Set aside.

3. In a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallots and saute for 4 minutes. Stir in the egg mixture. Cover, reduce the heat to low and cook until the eggs are almost set, about 10 minutes.

4. Sprinkle the frittata with the remaining Asiago. Place the frittata under the broiler and cook until the top is set and starts to brown, about 3 minutes. Place a large serving plate over the pan, and carefully invert to turn out the frittata to serve.

Servings: 4
