Shiitake Mushroom Frittata
Serves: 4 to 6
Rita says: The frittata is a versatile dish that's delicious and quick and easy to make. They're also a great way to use alternatives to cow's milk cheeses. This frittata should only take 35 minutes from start to finish!
Try adding different seasonal vegetables, such as sautéed asparagus, snow peas, or green beans, and fresh herbs or chopped scallions for variety.
- 8 large eggs Add to list
- 1/2 cup goat milk Add to list
- Salt and freshly ground pepper Add to list
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Add to list
- 2 medium leeks, white parts and a little of the light green part, halved and sliced thinly. (Note: Make sure to wash thoroughly, after cutting in half; pat dry.) Add to list
- 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced into 1/4-inch slices (you can substitute crimini mushrooms for the shiitakes) Add to list
- 1/4 pound sheep milk or goat milk feta cheese, crumbled Add to list
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add goat milk, salt and pepper and whisk until thoroughly combined.
Heat olive oil over medium in a medium-sized cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet. Add leeks and sauté until leeks begin to soften, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add mushrooms. Continue to sauté until mushrooms have released their fluid and are soft, about another 5 to 8 minutes.
Pour egg mixture over the sautéed vegetables and stir to combine. Allow to cook on the stovetop for 3 or 4 minutes. Sprinkle feta over the top of the eggs, pushing the cheese into the egg mixture so it is submerged.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. The top of the frittata should be golden yellow and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.
