Onion Frittata (Frittata con cipolle)

This is a quick recipe to make frittata. A Frittata is eggs mixed with anything you like! It does not have to complicated; just use one or two vegetables or something leftover from the previous lunch/dinner. In my case I love to have my frittata with onion only.

  • When the oil is hot, add the onion slices into the pan and shallow-fry until the bottom side of the slices goes a nice golden colour.

  • Then, turn the slices and colour the other side. If you have put too much oil, at this stage you can still remove the excess oil with a spoon.

  • Next, add the eggs into the pan.

  • Gently shake the pan so that the egg mixture is evenly distributed around the pan and coat all the onion slices. Cook the bottom of the frittata for a couple a minutes or so, then, we need to firm the top side, which still shows some runny eggs.

  • The best way to firm the top side of the frittata is to put under a broiler for few seconds (40-60 seconds should be enough).

  • I need the top side slightly dry so that I can turn the frittata by flipping it. Technically speaking, you don’t need to flip the frittata; you can finish it under the broiler or in the oven. but I love flipping it!

  • Cook for another minute, so that you are sure the bottom side of the frittata gets a nice colour. Then, shove it into a plate or onto a greaseproof paper as I did. Slice it and enjoy it.
