Prosciutto-and-Fresh-Mozzarella Frittata

  • ACTIVE: 25 MIN

Frittatas are one of the easiest breakfasts to make for a group: Simply beat the eggs, add the fillings, cook for 3 or 4 minutes on the stove to set the eggs, then pop the pan in the oven. Best of all, unlike most other egg dishes, frittatas are as good—if not better—warm or at room temperature as they are when piping hot.

  1. 10 large eggs
  2. 1/4 cup milk
  3. 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  4. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  5. 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  6. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  8. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  9. 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  10. 1 medium tomato, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  11. 4 thin slices of prosciutto, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  12. 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch cubes
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Beat in the milk, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, parsley and basil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In an 8-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the tomato and prosciutto and cook, stirring, until warm, about 2 minutes. Pour in the eggs and cook until beginning to set on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Poke the mozzarella cubes into the eggs. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the frittata for about 20 minutes, until just firm when lightly pressed.
  3. Set the skillet over high heat and shake the frittata until it releases, about 10 seconds. Place a large, flat plate over the skillet and carefully invert the frittata onto it. Let cool for 5 minutes, then cut into wedges and serve.
