Frittata with Onions

Oddly, one of the more unanticipated benefits of this adventure chez Doug, is the focus it provides when planting my herb & vegetable gardens - e.g. gotta make sure I harvest the zucchini blossoms for a "crisp-fried" recipe scheduled for next March, but almost certainly prepared months in advance. This recipe is the obverse - it presents a solution to a bountiful annual crop of onions. This frittata uses a lot of onions - onions, eggs, cheese and not much else. Simple ingredients; easy preparation, very good result.

The directions provide an option of adding vegetables, herbs, sausages or shrimp, but I chose to do it straight-up - at least for the first time.

The frittata mixture, all ready to go into the sauté pan. Marcella provides a couple of suggestions for cooking the top side of this recipe. I chose the broil option

Sorry no pic of the final result, but this is an ideal dish to make use of some of bounty of a summer garden. Highly recommended.

P.S. Tomorrow is Bill Clinton's birthday. Mine also. Happy birthday Bill.
