Don't You Hate...

... when you make something yummy for dinner, everyone* gobbles it up happily and you think to yourself, "mmmm, I'll be making that one again" only to have the recipe vanish from the face of the earth!


I made a Pumpkin and Feta Frittata sometime last week - the title would suggest it had pumpkin and feta in it, and I remember it had eggs and some finely sliced bacon but as to measurements? Meh, don't know, can't find 'em. I know it was started on the stove-top and finished in the oven but for how long? Wouldn't have a clue. I know the recipe was a page torn from a magazine but which one? Got me stumped there. Anyone out there know where I got it from? I think it was fairly recent if that helps. Anyone????


Well, here's the photo anyway...




*In the interest of ummm, like, honesty... I must disclose that while Offspring #1 went back for seconds, and then thirds, Miss Picky aka Offspring #2 took one look and declared the whole thing to be 'yuk' . She did, under threat of death, taste the frittata but made such a fuss that I fed her all the carrot sticks from the accompanying salad just to make her shut up. Bad Parenting Technique #4627.

Looks yum...no idea where you got it though, sorry!!

Nice thing about frittatas is you don't need exact measurements of anything. Just give it a go and see what looks good. As to how long on the stove: I think you are supposed to cook it nearly all the way through on the stove, then just stick it under the broiler to brown. Hope this helps. Be brave and experiment!

I've got lots of frittata recipes, I can't help ripping them out of the pages of food magazines. One of them says to use a deep 25cm ovenproof frying pan and cook the frittat in the oven at 200C for 35-40 mins or until golden. Use ten eggs and add some cream or cheese (my favourite recipe uses 120g of soft goat's cheese).

Perhaps you should have blogged this yummy frittata then you would have known where to find the recipe! Shame on you for trying to keep it from us! LOL! Kaz x

That does annoy me....except for me, it's usually when I try to make up some recipe and don't write it down! Then, even if it's good, I don't know what I did!

You're a talented cook - I'm sure you could reproduce this recipe with your eyes closed. Looks delish!! Your #2 sounds like my #1! *urgh* We can bad parent together.

Oh no, that's annoying! But I bet it would come back to you once you start making it! :)
