French Fridays with Dorie
This is my last minute contribution to this week’s French Friday’s with Dorie project. Please pardon my brevity with this post but I barely have a minute to spare with Friday in my particular time zone. When I got home tonight I realized I hadn’t planned anything for dinner. No problem because this “tortilla” is really what we usually have for dinner when I haven’t planned anything. Only we call it a “frittata” and my man calls it an “omelet”. (In my book its not an omelet unless it has a flip!) So I wonder if “Basque” means ” clean out the fridge” since that is what this dish is truly about. Artichoke hearts, green onions, red peppers, bacon, cheese bits, frozen or fresh spinach, garlic… nothing is safe from the skillet frittata. Nor should it be. The dish makes everything into a dish worthy of a few pages in a best selling cookbook. That said, I’ve never made it with potatoes.
From beginning to end this dish takes no more than 35 minutes. Check out the rest of the Dorista’s Tortilla efforts here. They came up with some pretty great variations on this one too!
