Slice Out Squash Blossom Fritatta

Squash Blossom and Goat Cheese Frittata

This frittata has such a gorgeous presentation that sometimes it's a shame to slice into it! Summer squash, zucchini, and shallots are sauteed and then folded into the egg base that is leavened with crème fraîche. The squash blossoms and goat cheese are dotted over the egg/vegetable base, and the dish is garnished with fresh basil. The result is not only beautiful but outrageously delicious! The whole dish can be made in under 45 minutes and will indeed become a household favorite!

Ingredients
  

Frittata

  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup crème fraîche
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 3 baby Summer squash, or 1 standard size, cut into ¼ inch rounds
  • 3 baby zucchini, or 1 standard size, cut into ¼ inch rounds
  • 7 to 8 squash blossoms, cleaned (stamen removed)
  • ¼ cup goat cheese
  • Fresh basil for garnish
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions
 

 Frittata

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Crack the eggs in a medium-sized mixing bowl and add the crème fraîche.
  • Lightly beat, and season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large sauté pan over moderate heat and coat with olive oil.
  • When the oil is simmering, add the shallots with a pinch of salt. Sauté the shallot until translucent, around 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the Summer squash and zucchini to the pan and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the vegetables have softened.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the egg mixture. With a silicone spatula, constantly stir for 3- 4 minutes, moving the egg base around the vegetables and around the pan to create egg threads.
  • Turn the heat off and lay in the squash blossoms and dollop the goat cheese around the pan.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until the edges are slightly golden and the eggs have set.
  • Garnish the dish with fresh torn basil and a drizzle of olive oil.
