Frittata with Fresh Herbs


Eggs are a staple in my house and are usually what I turn to when I cook for just myself.

This frittata is perfect to whip up for a casual summer dinner, served with a simple green salad.  Don’t feel “stuck” with the herbs that are in the recipe – play around with what looks the freshest when you’re at the farmer’s market.  Hint: tarragon and eggs make a perfect combination!



8 large eggs, beaten

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/3 cup heavy cream

1 Tbsp snipped chives

1 tsp finely chopped parsley

1 Tbsp butter

Salt and freshly ground pepper



Turn oven to broil setting.


In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the Parmesan, cream, chives and parsley; season with salt and pepper.


In a 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, melt the butter on the stovetop. Whisk the eggs again, then add to the skillet and cook without stirring for 1 minute, until just set around the edge. Using a rubber spatula, lift the edge and tilt the pan so the uncooked egg seeps underneath. Continue until the eggs are mostly set, 3 minutes.


Move the skillet to the oven.  Broil on high until the center is cooked through. Slide onto a large plate, cut into wedges and serve.
