Recently, Bozemama wrote about Taking a Cooking Class With Your Teen , where she and her daughter went to Olivelle. They learned about making a number of tasty dishes with quality ingredients. One was a, "Mexican Frittata using all kinds of savory herbs, roasted red peppers and another awesome olive oil – this one infused with Vera Cruz chili."

And wow! That sounds amazing. I thought that I would write up the basics of making a Fritatta and then you can modify it as you like. It is so easy and it looks fancy. I love to whip one of these together when we have family visiting or if I can't come up with any other ideas for dinner.

You will need a omelette pan. Cooking oil of your choice, eggs, veggies, perhaps some cheese and herbs, a little flour and a little baking powder.

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Put enough oil in to coat the pan. Turn to Medium High heat. Chop up a potato or two, add in some onion or garlic and saute until the onions look glassy or the potatoes are almost cooked through.
  • While the pan is on the stove, get a large bowl. Crack in 5 or 6 eggs and beat them with a whisk or a fork. Stir in a Tablespoon of flour, a pinch of baking powder and a sprinkle of salt. Cut some small cubes of cheese if you'd like and stir into the egg mixture.
  • If you are using herbs or spinach, chop them up and add them to your saute pan for just a quick minute. Then pour your egg mixture into the pan. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes.

And that is really all there is to it. Enjoy!
