Recipe: Mozzarella, Basil & Zucchini Frittata


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1½ cups thinly sliced red onion

  • 1½ cups chopped zucchini

  • 7 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • ⅔ cup pearl-size or baby fresh mozzarella balls (about 4 ounces)

  • 3 tablespoons chopped soft sun-dried tomatoes

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil

PREPARATION:

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

  2. Heat oil in a large broiler-safe nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Add onion and zucchini and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl.

  5. Pour the eggs over the vegetables in the pan.

  6. Cook, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg from the middle to flow underneath, until nearly set, about 2 minutes.

  7. Arrange mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes on top and place the skillet under the broiler until the eggs are slightly browned, 1½ to 2 minutes.

  8. Let stand for 3 minutes. Top with basil.

  9. To release the frittata from the pan, run a spatula around the edge, then underneath, until you can slide or lift it out onto a cutting board or serving plate.

  10. Cut into 4 slices and serve.
