Herby Frittata that is oh-so-good! A Californian Sauvignon Blanc would be an awesome pairing! Adapted from Alexandra Angle of Aqua Vitae.

  • 12 large eggs
  • 236.59 ml loosely packed chopped herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, basil and tarragon
  • 118.29 ml whole milk
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 59.16 ml unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, very finely chopped
  • 29.58 ml extra-dry vermouth
  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Whisk eggs with chopped herbs and whole milk in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over moderate heat. Add onion and saute until it is softened, about 6 minutes.
  4. Add vermouth and increase heat to high and cook until evaporated, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to moderate and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet.
  5. Pour in the egg mixture. Carefully arrange the tomato slices on top of the egg mixture in a single layer in a pretty circle. Cook eggs without touching, until the edge just begins to set, about 4 minutes.
  6. Place skillet in oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until it is set in the center.
  7. Let the frittata stand for 5 minutes, then slide it onto a large plate and serve.

Very nice dish. I halved the recipe, as there's only 2 of us and the leftovers made a nice toasted sandwich the next day. Made for Facebook ABC Tag. :)

DH made this easy, tasty frittata for us for brunch today. We easily halved the ingredients to suit the 2 of us. It looked very pretty in the pan. Thanks!

I made this for Hubby and Little Miss (DD) for dinner tonight and they both enjoyed it. For the herbs I used Parsley, Basil, Sage, Oregano and I also added a little Garlic. It only took me about 20 mins to cook, but it may be that my pan was larger. They both enjoyed the Frittata. Thank NcMysteryShopper - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*
