Tortino

"A tortino is like an oven-baked frittata. It is easy to prepare and makes a good supper or lunch dish served on its own. The vegetables used can vary with the seasons. This is another Lucy Waverman recipe from Food and Drink."

    This was wonderful and I enjoyed the leeks and zucchini in this egg dish. I cut the recipe in half and the only change I made was to add some ham, as I had some leftover from another dish and it is a very common ingredient in Spain. This was served as a brunch meal and I served it with cantaloupe and blueberry muffins, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

    This was wonderful! A very good ratio of egg to vegetable. The fresh thyme really makes this dish. the flavor is subtle, but very fresh and spring like. I added a sprinkle of feta to the top, as I had a bit in the fridge to use up. I really like that this will work with whatever vegetables are on hand, asparagus tips and artichoke hearts come to mind immediately. This is pretty enough to serve to company, as well, and would make a great lunch with a small salad and a glass of white wine. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers.
