Frittata- Spanish Omelette!!!Comfort food par excellence…

IMG_20171007_102511_HDRedtwtr

Frittata is a Spanish thick flat omelette, packed with flavours and could be consumed at any temperature.  The Spanish classic recipe contains only three ingredients, Eggs, Potatoes and onion. However, many variations have come up along with its three key  ingredients. Bell peppers, Cheese, olives and the spices, herbs of your choice.  I have added another ingredients to make it a full meal. I have added bread slicesand lots and lots of cheese. It could be names stuffed pizza omelette.  It could be cooked in flat based pan only or after half cook could be put in oven to make it crispier. I cooked it in flat pan.

For more variations see the notes below Recipe.

Add the grated cheese all over the omelet. Spread the bell peppers, chili flakes, black pepper one by one.  Slowly you will see the breads get soaked in the wet egg mix. There are two ways to cook further.

  1. Cook covered in low flame till the top is cooked but not browned.

2.Place the pan in the oven and let it get browed in the oven.

I cooked it in pan. So to ensure that the inside omelette does not remain uncooked.

I flipped it by inverting in on a plate.

Slide it back into the pan to cook it evenly on both sides. While cooking shake the pan gently at times.
