Apple Cheddar Frittata

Great brunch idea – serve this with some chicken sausages and a green salad.  Soooo easy.
BTW – my photos don’t so this justice – I’m just using a simple digital camera with zero photography skills.  I’m sure I won’t be on FoodGawker or Tastespotting anytime soon  lol.  But, I thought it was important for readers to have an idea of how this comes together.

I made this in a small saute pan, so I was able to flip it instead of putting the pan in the broiler.  If you’re not crazy about doing the flip thing, or are using a larger pan , place the pan in the broiler in the middle rack ( after the bottom browns) for about 10-15 mins until the top browns.

Ingredients:
Serves 1-2
3 eggs
1 T heavy cream
1/2 shredded cheddar cheese (gruyere would be nice too)
1/2 thinly slice gala apple – peeled or unpeeled – your choice
1 pat of butter
P.S. – double the recipe and use a larger pan if you want more servings.
Place butter in 7 inch non stick saute pan and add apples.  Saute apples until soft.  ( you can skip this step if you are using the broiler). The apples will soften with the additional cooking in the broiler.
Whisk eggs with cream.

Remove apples from pan.  Add eggs and cheese to pan, top with the apple slices arranged in a circular pattern.

Cook on medium heat, pushing the edges with a rubber spatula so the uncooked parts run to the edges.
Push gently  only on the edges, so you don’t end up with scrambled eggs.  After a few minutes, gently use the spatula to lift the frittata to check for browning on the bottom.  Once the bottom is browned, carefully lift the frittata with a wide spatula and flip it over to brown the other side.  At this point, you can elect to skip the flipping and place the pan in the broiler to brown the top.  Mine got a bit messy when I flipped it, but that’s ok.  Once I plated it, it was fine.

Once both sides are browned, platter this puppy and you have yourself a delicious Apple Cheddar Frittata!
