Ingredients

  • 6 eggs I used 4 duck eggs and 2 chicken eggs; use what you have
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 cup chopped Basil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Garlic Kale

  • 1 bunch kale I used curly kale
  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 extra large garlic clove finely minced or pressed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl beat the eggs with some salt and pepper and stir in the basil and the Parmesan cheese.
  • Place olive oil in a heavy, oven proof skillet at medium-high heat.  Pour in egg mixture and lower the heat to medium-low.    Cook, without touching/stirring, until the bottom is firm; about 10-15 minutes.
  • Place in the heated oven to allow the top to complete cooking to a golden brown, an additional 10 minutes.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

Garlic Kale

  • Wash and strip kale from center stem.  This is easily done by starting at the bottom of the leaf at the stem and pulling toward the top of the leaf along the stem; it will pull right off the stem in large pieces.  Roughly chop the kale into large bite-size pieces (it will wilt some).
  • Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy skilled on medium heat.  Add the minced garlic and sauté 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the kale and cook, stirring occasionally on medium heat for about 10 minutes when the kale has begun to wilt.  Note:  with Curly Kale it will not wilt completely like softer greens.

Notes

As mentioned before the combinations for this dish are endless.  You can put different herbs in the frittata.  Mexican toppings would be great (Gallo Pinto, salsa, a tomato based sauce).  Other sautéed seasonal vegetables.  It’s like a polenta in its flexibility and can’t be beat for a fast delicious meal.
