This was a delicious frittata, I love artichokes and the cheese(s) addition in it. I appreciate the cooking in the oven as in this way I did not have to turn it and may be break it. The delicious aroma from the herbs addition made this "simply" dish realy special.<br/>Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
This was excellent for our late breakfast today! I used 2 cans of quartered (UNmarinated) artichoke hearts. I counted - 1 can had the equivalent of 6 *small* hearts so I used 2 cans. My only advice - WATCH the oven while broiling. I nearly ruined this. But we happily ate our very brown crusted frittata, lol. Made for Culinary Quest 2914/CCQ.
Excellent!!! Wow, I really loved this for my breakfast this morning. I scaled the recipe down to about 1/4 (still using 2 eggs) and used a small cast iron skillet. I loved the artichokes, but especially the browned (important for flavor to get them brown!) onions. Yum! Made for Culinary Quest Italy - International Agents of Quest. Thank you!
