Arugula And Spring Onion Frittata

serves 8

Frittatas are great at room temperature, so they are perfect for entertaining. One warning, though: Resist the urge to cut back on the oil. It's all that stands between you and a stuck-in-the-pan mess.

8 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup regular or 2 percent milk
1/3 cup grated parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 coarsely chopped spring onions (scallions), white and tender green parts only
2 ounces (about 4 cups) arugula


prep: 10 minutes
total: 20 minutes


large bowl
10-inch nonstick, ovenproof skillet (with lid)


1. Preheat the oven to 425F.

2, In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, parmesan, chives and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add the spring onions and cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the arugula, cover the pan and cook for 1 minute. Remove the cover and stir the arugula just until it wilts. Add the remaining oil and increase the heat to medium-high. Let the oil heat for 1 minute, then pour in the egg mixture. Use a fork to evenly distribute the arugula without scrambling the eggs. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes without stirring until you see the edges just starting to cook. Transfer to the oven.

4. Bake until the frittata has puffed and browned around the edges and is firm in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. To serve, slide the frittata onto a platter or invert the frittata onto the platter so the browned side is face up. Serve warm or at room temperature.
