Mexican Frittata

This recipe was submitted by Stefan in NYC.

A beautifully presented dish meant for breakfast in bed, the frittata, or open faced omelet, is easy to prepare and impressive to serve.

Mexican Frittata

8 eggs
1/2 cup of half and half
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons of sweet butter
3 heaping teaspoons of cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons of chopped yellow chives (Chinese garlic chives)
1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped
1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips

Garnish
1 avocado quartered and thinly sliced
lemon juice
black pitted kalmata olives
Dollop of chipotle

Whisk together  eggs, half and half , and salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add cilantro and yellow chives, sauté over medium-low heat until soft. Pour egg mixture into skillet, cover and cook until outer edges begin to slightly brown. Add 1/2 cup grated cheese, replace cover and allow cheese to melt into the frittata.

Heat broiler. Slice avocado and drizzle with fresh lemon–set aside. Place the remaining cheese (1/2 cup), over the frittata and place the uncovered skillet under the broiler until starts to brown and frittata fluffs up, about 2-3 minutes. Slide the frittata on to a plate. Garnish with sliced avocado and place in a pinwheel fashion around the plate. Add olives and place a dollop of chipotle in the center. Grab two cups of coffee, a bag of tortilla chips and hop back into bed.

Crab Cakes + Spicy Remoulade

One of my favorites, crab cakes can be served as an appetizer or a main dish. Served with a glass of wine or champagne this is also a great way to jump start your date with a moment together at your place before heading out for your favorite restaurant.
