Fritatta (with whatever)

Over in A New Beginning, I talked about making a Fritatta, which is an open faced Italian omlette. Here's how I do it...I'm not sure if it's right, but it sure does taste good.

2 Tbl spoons of butter (divided)
6 eggs
1/4 Cup of Milk
1 Cup of Cheese
1/4 cup of Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to your liking (I use cyenne and garlic salt-sometimes)
3-4 slices of ham diced
1/2 med-lg avacado
1/2 bag of spinach (w/out ecoli, please)
3 chopped green onions

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Get 10" omlette (or skillet) pan hot and melt 1T of butter, brown diced ham while doing step 1a.
1a. Beat eggs, stir in milk and continue beating egs (just for a moment or two)
2. Set ham aside and melt remainder of butter.
3. Pour eggs in omlette pan
4. When bottom of eggs seem set, sprinkle ham throughout eggs; repeat with remainder of ingredients
5. Slide skillet into oven until eggs set and cheese browns on top. (Should take about 6-8 minutes)
6. Remove from oven and slide on to FLAT cutting board or plate.
7. Slice, let cool and enjoy.

Now there are lots of ways to make a frittata. Some include dicing potatoes and onions and frying up in a pan before hand. One could use sausage or whatever type of meat you'd like to use. I need to try it with crab, shrimp or lobster....I have seen it prepared with cooked pasta and sun dried tomatoes, but that was a little weird to me. I guess, it's a starch like potatoes.

Someone try this....let me know if you liked it!

In the words of Rachel Ray it sounds "delici" (pronounced delish).
