Amateur baker with a passion for eating!
So I went out this morning & harvested some courgettes from the garden!
I would just like to say that I may not have followed all of the instructions in the above link perfectly, and although my frittata tasted amazing, the finished dish didn’t look like something you would get in a restaurant.
But then again, the most important part is most definitely the taste – and I loved it (yes, I know, me, the courgette hater!)!
This frittata recipe is really easy to make. And quick, too.
Not that that stopped me from messing it up slightly… :S
Firstly, I didn’t notice the part where it says “Serves 2”. I can tell you from experience that this frittata most definitely does serve 2. My food baby will attest to that.
Secondly, I didn’t use a non-stick frying pan. Mainly because my mother doesn’t own one (they get stratched and “sticky” too quickly). Also, I didn’t read to the end of the instructions. So when my frittata was cooked on the bottom but not quite ready on the top, I attempted to flip it.
Now, the instructions do not involve any flipping. They clearly state that the frittata should be put under the grill to finish off cooking the top.
I’m not sure my flipping made any difference whatsoever to the taste, but it did ruin the presentation just a tad. I ended up flipping it in sections as it wouldn’t all flip at the same time – yup, it was stuck to the bottom of the pan…
Then again, when you’re cooking for yourself, who cares about presentation?
After all, I am an amateur [read: complete novice] cook.
So here’s a photo of my frittata. Please do not judge the recipe on this photo. It genuinely tasted amazing and I would definitely recommend trying this recipe. Just don’t make the same mistakes I did 🙂
Just one last thing: yesterday I said, “I have a theory that pretty much everything tastes better when you add cheese and heat it up”. I would like to amend this theory: “Pretty much everything tastes better when grate it up into tiny, almost unnoticeable pieces, add cheese and heat it up”.
Great recipe 🙂
