western frittata

I have made many versions of this Western Frittata since getting the book Everyday Dorie— most of them were not even very Western. I also have many photos of the many versions and I don’t even exactly remember what I put in them. I think this particular one is probably more of an Italian Frittata…looks like I used sun-dried tomatoes, red peppers and pesto. I can’t be sure because there are so many things you can do with a frittata. It’s a lot like the Ginger Fried Rice we made, in that it’s a fridge-raiding, use what you have, get rid of bits and bobs kinda thing. It’s perfect for what’s going down right now, and I mix it up on the regular now that I’m making breakfast for two every.single.morning.

I have a small cast iron pan, so I do roughly a half-recipe of Dorie’s frittata, except instead of four eggs I only use three because I prefer them a little thinner and they cook a little quicker.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to what everyone made this week.

  1. Frittata is the ultimate Covid pantry meal!! Yours is gorgeous!

  2. Ooooh- score !! Another great option for the current COVID situation. Well done you and yes, this looks simply delish. Great job !

  3. Looks yummy!

  4. I don’t make breakfast every.single.morning but oh all those dishes. With 3 of us home for 3 meals a day I feel I do dishes all day long. I hope we can slowly come out of our homes soon. I haven’t made a frittata in a long time so will have to try this one out.

  5. A frittata is a perfect meal for me and way to use up leftovers which I hate to waste. I even like the frittata leftovers for lunch the next day. I don’t often think of needing a recipe for it because it’s always pot luck. Good idea and very pretty presentation.

  6. I make a combination of this from time to time, not knowing the recipe in the book. The red is the real attention seeker.

  7. I will definitely need to try this one soon. Looks delicious…and so versatile!
