Sample text

A slice of bread is spread or topped with a filling, capped with a second slice, and then cut on the diagonal into triangles or, more rarely, cut into fingers or squares. Suggested Fillings Smoked trout fillets, cucumber slices, and cream cheese, herbed cream cheese, or cream cheese flavored with horseradish. Sliced prosciutto, bresaola (salt-dried beef from Valtellina), or salami; arugula or fresh fig or pear slices (optional); and unsalted butter. Sliced prosciutto, chopped mostarda di frutta (spicy fruit preserve), and unsalted butter.

Bake the frittata until the top is set and lightly colored, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool for at least 8 to 10 minutes, and cut into squares or wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature. Alternatively, after adding the green onions and asparagus to the egg mixture, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a 10-inch flameproof sauté pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until set, 10 to 15 minutes, or leave the heat at medium and cook uncovered for about 8 minutes.

But baking the frittata is the easiest method and is practically foolproof. I have, however, included instructions for the combination of stove top and broiler for anyone who prefers to make it that way. Some cooks separate the eggs, beat the whites until they are stiff, and then fold them into the yolk-and-milk mixture for a slightly higher effect. I do not think the result is worth the extra step. Extra-virgin olive oil as needed Salt 1½ pounds thin asparagus spears, tough ends removed and cut into 1½-inch pieces 8 eggs � cup whole milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (optional) 6 to 8 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg or ground cinnamon Freshly ground black pepper � cup chopped green onions or green garlic (optional) Preheat the oven to 350°F.
