Fritata question

I need technique qustion for this, will this work?



Heat 10 inch non stick pan on stove

fry some onion and bell pepper in oil
add some greens like spinach
add a bunch of cheese
add 6 scrambled egg and milk mixture


Then stir a bit, but do not actually scramble the eggs


let it set up,



then some of these shows say, Flip the thing over to brown other side! I can't do that.


another show said, put it under the broiler for 2 minutes till brown on top?


Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

Flipping and broiling will brown the top side. If you can't manage a flip, use the broiler. I use the broiler.

You can try to turn the frittata over using a dinner plate on the skillet.

Eric, the way that I make Frittata is to finish the dish in a 350° oven until just done ... 8-20 minutes depending on the size.
Keep an eye on it as to not over bake the eggs, this will make for a very dry dish.
Think of Frittatas as a crust-less quiche, you want the eggs to be soft and moist not dry and sponge-y.

Another method if you do not have an oven-proof pan is to utilize a large dinner plate.
Place the plate over the pan, with one hand flat over it and holding firmly; flip the entire pan, Frittata and all, onto it.
Then gently slide the un-cooked top of the eggs to the hot surface of the pan.
Again, keep an eye on it, you don't want to over cook it.

I use the dinner plate method, too, but I slide it out onto the plate, then put the pan over the plate, and flip. This way, the uncooked egg on the top doesn't get on the plate.

Traditional fritatta (Trust me, I'm Sicilian. I know these things): Fritattas work best in a cast iron skillet. Leave out the milk, that would make it a soufflé. Diced potato is traditional. Cook through on stove top, pulling back the edges and tipping the pan until all the egg is cooked, then sprinkle shredded cheese on top and stick it under the broiler to cook the top and make the cheese brown and bubbly.

I don't make a lot of frittata's but when I do it as Sir LOB does it - and I'm not Sicillian.

I find that the easiest/fastest. Save the oven to hold the bacon and warm up the plates.
