A Wintry Frittata for Weekend Herb Blogging
Not another fritatta, you say....personally, I can't think of a more versatile dish...always different and ever the easiest thing to whip up on a Sunday morning....especially since I can't find great Challah here in Halifax. Perhaps I'll start baking my own, but in the meantime...fritattas have become our Sunday tradition. And I've made a bazillion that you can find here. They're all slightly different, depending on the season, my mood and what's in my fridge.
This one is full of mushrooms - shitakes and cremini and there was some fresh thyme in the fridge crying out for my attention...a perfect marriage in my mind...that earthiness and richness was perfectly matched with the red onion, marinated roasted red peppers and roasted rosemary ham I picked up at the deli department of Pete's Frootique this week where I also found some fontina/fontana...not sure what name it goes by, but think mozarella with its chewiness and just a bit saltier. Put them all together and you have a rich, body & soul warming plate of goodness. So how could I not share with Kalyn's Weekend Herb Blogging Event (one of my all time favorites) and this week hosted by The Skinny Gourmet (don't I wish that were me...the skinny part, anyway)
