Hola! Frittata

We were planning on what to make for brunch recently and as I was pouring through cookbooks and looking online for inspiration I came across a frittata recipe which sounded promising. As we’ve never made a frittata before, and Ryan does love a challenge, that’s exactly what we decided to do. We took ideas from several online sources, but in the end he made it up as he went along and made it his own and it was delicious! We thought, with all the Mexican flavors and ingredients in the dish, naming it Hola! Frittata was a perfect fit. We served ours with breakfast potatoes – yum!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 3/4 lb chorizo sausage
  • 1/2 red onion, cut into thin slices
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 splash milk (about 1 tbsp+)
  • 1 tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped after measuring
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup monterrey jack cheese, shredded

Pre-heat an oven to 375. Lightly coat the peppers in olive oil and place in the oven to roast. You’ll roast them until the skin starts to brown and gets puffy. Be sure to flip them at some point in time. It usually takes me 15-20 minutes in our oven to get them nicely roasted. Once roasted, put them in a brown paper bag to steam. Steam for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the bag, remove the skins, and then core and deseed.

In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and cilantro together. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 450. Heat an oven-safe skillet to medium heat and add butter. Add garlic and onions and cook until translucent. Add chorizo and Mexican oregano then cook until chorizo is cooked through to your liking (we cooked ours medium-rare and it’s important to keep in mind that it will continue cooking in the oven). Add in egg mixture and cook until egg starts to set on edges and bottom of pan. Place in oven and cook until egg is cooked through. We cooked ours for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let set for about 5 minutes. Turn skillet over onto cutting board or platter and then slice and serve.
