I cut the oil called for from 3 T to 1 T and used Pam on the pan instead; I also cut the eggs from 8 to 7. Recipe is from Lisa's Kitchen: Frittatas are thick, sturdy Italian omelette pies that can be loaded with any vegetable, herb or cheese according to season or taste, and they're so versatile and easy to make that it's no wonder I've been really getting into them lately for Sunday breakfasts. Filling, nourishing and delicious, I've usually got leftovers for a ridiculously easy reheated breakfast on Monday morning too.

Recipe Ingredients for Greek feta & olive frittata

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 red onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
7 large eggs
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and halved
10 oz feta cheese

Recipe Directions for Greek feta & olive frittata

  1. Heat a large wok over medium heat. When hot, add the 1 tablespoon of olive oil, wait a few seconds, then swirl around to coat the pan. Toss in the grape tomatoes and stir for just 30 seconds or so to blister the skins. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  2. Add the onions to the hot oil along with the dried herbs. Sauté for 5 minutes until soft, and remove from heat.

  3. Break the eggs into a large bowl, add the paprika, and beat well with a whisk. Add the grape tomatoes, onions and olives. Crumble in 1 cup of the feta cheese, and mix until combined.

  4. Preheat an oven to 350°. Spray an 8x11 glass baking dish with Pam and pour in the egg mixture.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set in the centre, which you can test with a cake tester. As soon as the frittata is set, turn on the broiler and move the oven rack up to the top level. Remove the frittata from the oven, crumble the last 1/4 cup of feta cheese over the top, and return the pan under the broiler for another couple of minutes until the top is nicely browned.

  6. Remove the pan from the oven. Run a rubber spatula around the edges of the pan to loosen the sides, then slide onto a large serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve hot. Serves 4-6.

  7. Wrap any leftovers in aluminum foil and reheat later at 350° for 12-15 minutes.
