one of my new years goals was to 'master the frittata'.  charlie made fun of me but i've made them a few times before and always with mild success.  there's a million ways to make them but i hadn't quite found the best way for me yet.  i had always ether burned it in the broiler or not cooked the bottom enough.  on friday i attempted another one because my first plan for dinner got scrapped because ellie was too fussy to put down (i think we've entered the 6 week fussy period, which means from about 4:30 to 9:30 there is lots of crying and holding and pacing around the house).  i considered this frittata a success and wanted to actually write down what i did so that i would remember when i went to make it again.  probably next week when we're in need of a quick dinner again. 

i used diced tomatoes and onion because i had them on hand but my favorite combos usually involve mushrooms and zucchini.  

here's what i used:

8 eggs
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 onion chopped
mozzerella cheese

preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  melt the butter in the pan, add the onion and sauté.  mix the eggs, milk (i just dumped some in), tomatoes, pepper, basil, and oregano in a bowl.  add the mix to the pan once the onion is done sautéing.  let it cook for about 10 minutes. sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top and bake for 25 minutes.  eat.

it was good.  i'm crossing this off of my goal list.
