Classic Frittata

I'm updating the site tonight, and realizing that I have no idea what we put in this frittata -- but that may well be the point.  At the peak of summer or early fall, use fresh herbs and favorite cheeses and fresh vegetables; in winter, our go-to is a mushroom and gruyere or swiss combination with dried thyme.  Tomatoes are a welcomed addition, always.   You start on the stove and finish in the oven, and it comes out beautifully every time.  This recipe is best suited for an 8-inch frying pan that is also oven-safe.

 6 eggs, beaten
 1 cup milk
 salt and pepper to taste
 fresh or dried herbs of choice (basil, thyme, sage, etc.)
 for sauteéing vegetables and aromatics
 cheese

1

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.

2

Beat together your eggs and milk in a bowl, and season with salt, pepper, and/or any dried or fresh herbs. Set aside.

3

Heat a tablespoon or two of oil to sauteé any vegetables or aromatics, like onions.

4

Add your egg and herb mixture to the vegetables, and let set for 6 - 8 minutes on medium-high heat. Add your cheese to the top of the frittata at this time.

5

When the frittata has slightly set, move to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes; the edges will brown and bubble and settle slightly when removed from the heat. Allow to set for 10-12 minutes before slicing and serving.
