Basil Tomato Cream Cheese Frittata 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Frittata is the Italian word for omelette. Frittatas are prepared differently than omelettes, usually started on the stovetop and finished under the broiler. The result is an egg dish that is firm, and nicely brown on the top and edges. Frittatas require an ovenproof skillet for preparation, but no other special equipment. These are great dishes to highlight fresh, seasonal ingredients or a perfect way to utilize leftovers.
Frittatas are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Once cooked, they can be served hot, or cooled and served at room temperature. This flat omelette style dish will serve 4 to 6 people easily, often many more, as a frittata can have a dozen eggs or more in the dish along with fillers such as cheese, meat, and vegetables.


Ingredients:
12 Free Range Fresh Eggs
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon Dried Sage
1/4 teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Dried Thyme
1 tablespoon Butter
4 medium Roma or Plum Tomatoes, sliced
1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves, finely chopped
8 ounces Cream Cheese, cubed


Directions:
1. Add eggs, salt, pepper, sage, oregano, and thyme to medium bowl.

2. Whisk together.

3. Add butter to large oven proof skillet. Melt over medium heat.

4. Add tomatoes to skillet, and sauté one minute.

5. Reduce heat to low. Add fresh basil leaves and sauté until leaves are limp.

6. Pour egg mixture over tomatoes.

7. Top with cream cheese cubes.

8. Cover and cook over low heat approximately 20 minutes or until set on top.


Servings: 6


Notes: There are many variations of this recipe, try adding chopped greens (spinach or Kale) onion and or diced peppers and saute in butter with a dash of olive oil before adding eggs, then top with your favorite shredded cheese instead of cream cheese.
