Bon Appetit Onion Frittata

My oldest son was picky about eating eggs for the last 3 years. All of a sudden in the last couple of months he has decided that scrambled eggs are his favorite food and requests them almost everyday. While, my husband and I like scrambled eggs, they aren't our favorite way of preparing eggs on a regular basis, so I have been looking for a compromise. The May issue of Bon Appetit magazine had a recipe for Onion Frittata, which looked like an egg dish that my whole family would enjoy.

This recipe has 10 ingredients. I had to go to multiple stores in order to find fresh basil, sage and rosemary, however, the remainder of the ingredients were easy to find. I think it's another sign that I need to start my own herb garden next year. The prep for this recipe is very easy and the total prep and cooking time was approximately 25 minutes. I used vidalia onions for the sliced onions, since they are in season and a family favorite. I followed the recipe as stated and made no modifications. The one change that I did make to the original recipe was the cooking time, my fritata took closer to 15 minutes to fully set.

My five year old absolutely loved this recipe. He ate multiple servings for dinner and the leftovers the following day. My husband and I liked this recipe, but I felt that it needed more salt and pepper added to the seasoning. The fresh herbs provided a nice complexity, however, I actually think that the recipe could benefit from more flavor from additional onion or garlic. This is a very family friendly recipe and could easily be adapted for a variety of ingredients.

For the recipe go to Bon Appetit Onion Frittata.

  2. I love frittatas they are super yummy and super easy to make. I've never made the same kind twice, usually just throw together what ever we have around the house! Definietly go for the hrb garden...we have potted herbs on our back deck and I just love being able to grab fresh ingredients and throw them in whatever I'm making!

  3. I just love frittatas I'll second the herb garden. We have a window full and I seem to tossing in a sprig or leaf of something every day

  4. @Green Mama I normally don't follow a recipe as well, I just throw whatever ingredients I have together and it always turns out great!
