Broccolini Canadian Bacon Frittata
1 bunch broccolini, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, diced
8 oz Parmesan cubes
10 slices Canadian bacon*, in 1/4 inch wide strips
9 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 325. In a 12 inch cast iron skillet, heat oil and butter. When hot, saute the broccolini and onions until the onions are translucent. Add the Canadian bacon and saute just until it is warmed through. Whisk the spices and mustard into the eggs. Pour over the broccolini mixture. Evenly distribute the cheese over the egg. Tilt the skillet slightly and turn to coat the ingredients in the skillet with the egg mixture. Keep on medium heat and cook until just beginning to set. Place in the oven about 10 minutes or until the top is just beginning to brown. Check to make sure it is fully cooked by sticking it with a thin knife. Remove from pan and slice.
Yield: 8 servings
*My Canadian bacon slices were on the large yet thin side. Some brands may have thicker/smaller slices. If so, feel free to use more or less bacon.
