I know, my first frittata. Yes, it was so easy to make, but I had no idea. Frittatas always seemed like they would be hard to make – I was so wrong. Can you tell me why I have been making messy omelets all this time?
Anyway, while going through my stack of recipes (that I have torn out of magazines for years) trying to determine what my first challenge recipe would be, I saw a cute little picture of Jamie Oliver pop off the page. I know, I didn’t take a good picture of the recipe page, his cute little picture is on the bottom left, just out of my camera frame. Sorry. From his picture, I saw the word shrimp. And I love shrimp. Then I realized I had all the ingredients accept for fresh parsley, but I decided jarred would do in a pinch. Perfect, a new recipe, a new technique and I don’t even have to go to the grocery store. Easy.
And it was. Well, accept for slightly burning my finger on the skillet while taking it out of the oven. Plus, my frittata doesn’t look as fluffy and brown as the one on the recipe page, but it was a good first attempt. I will definitely make this one again... And may even try mixing up the ingredients a little.
Here is a link to almost the exact recipe. The recipe I had was out of Redbook. The differences included, less butter and lemon zest. And it noted that there were four servings at about 180 calories each. I couldn’t imagine eating half of the frittata at one sitting. This recipe was great reheated – perfect for the single girl. I recommend it.
Hmmm, now to figure out what my next challenge recipe will be.
