Recipe Ingredients for Frittata

3 tablespoons butter
1 cup sliced zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
8 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Frittata

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large heavy skillet.

  2. (Make sure the skillet will fit under the broiler, because the last step of the recipe is to melt the cheese over the top of the frittata.)

  4. Remove the zucchini with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool.

  5. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent.

  9. Wipe the skillet with a paper towel.

  10. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter and melt, tilting the skillet so that the bottom is evenly coated.

  11. When the butter foams, pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook over low heat until the eggs are almost set on top.

  12. Meanwhile, heat the broiler.

  13. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the frittata and place the skillet under th ebroiler.

  14. Cook until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.

  15. Serve at once.
