Thanks to a typo I've been given two chances to try eggs again this week. I’m egg-cited. [smile] An opportunity like this does not come around everyday! Hang in there with me…I’m trying to build momentum for myself. My very first post explains my egg dilemma. (http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/pomodori_e_vino/monday_irene/)
I decided to make the potato & onion frittata on the stove top and the green bean frittata in the oven.
Pan-Fried Onion and Potato
The first step for this recipe is to cook diced potatoes in two stages until they are nicely browned. While the potatoes cool you cook the onion. Mix both ingredients with the eggs, salt and pepper then add to the prepared skillet.
For this recipe the fresh green beans are cooked in salted water until tender but still firm. Eggs, beans, salt, pepper, parmesan are mixed together and poured into a buttered dish. Bake.
They both smell wonderful. Better than any egg dishes I’ve cooked before. I am a bit surprised with the results. I was able to eat an entire slice of potato/onion frittata. It was just like eating fried potatoes and sweet caramelized onions held together with a soft mystery ingredient. The mystery here is that it did not taste like eggs.
I managed to eat a little over half a slice of the green bean frittata before my gag reflex started to quiver. I had to stop eating but not before noting the perfectly cooked green beans and surprisingly mild flavor of the cheese. I could taste the eggs more here but it was dare I say…tasty.
No food will be wasted today. I live with two egg lovers who are enjoying them as I type. I’ll take the glistening lips and rapid chewing as thumbs up. Wow! I cannot believe it. I was able to eat a cooked egg dish without my usual unpleasant reaction. Hooray for me! I have to go call my mother. She’s not going to believe this.
