Make a super easy frittata for your guests.
Frittatas are incredibly easy and versatile. They can be made in a baking pan or dish, skillet, ramekins, or muffin tins sprayed with non-stick spray. Involve your guests (even the kids) by having a variety of chopped goodies arranged on a platter for them to fill a muffin cup with their favorite items (bacon, ham, cheese, red peppers, asparagus, or artichokes). Have the egg mixture ready and fill each cup about 3/4 full. Bake at 350ºF for 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of your dish.
Artichoke Cheese Frittata
1 small onion, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 – 6 oz jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped (reserve the oil from 1 jar)
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 cups Flagship Cheddar Cheese (or Holy Cow Swiss if you prefer), shredded
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
dash hot pepper sauce or Tabasco
Heat oven to 325ºF. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil from one jar of artichokes. Add onion and garlic; sauté until onion is soft. In a large bowl, beat eggs, add artichoke. Stir in remaining ingredients. Spray a 9” baking dish with cooking spray. Pour artichoke mix into baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool slightly and cut into squares.
Can be served hot or at room temperature. Cut into smaller pieces and use as an hors d’oeuvre.
