FRITTATA PEAS AND BACON



The luckiest ones that have access to a garden or to an allotment got them fresh but every one has a bag of peas or petit pois in the freezer, especially in this time.

So let's use them in a way a bit less boring that just cooking them with some olive oil and parsley and let's do a frittata instead! When you add an egg everything is becoming more interesting.

This is also a lovely trick to make children eat a bit of veggies that otherwise they say they don't like.

And our mum used to do that with us, when we did not want it simple, she made some efforts and transformed it in a really sophisticated way (in our children eyes) that it seemed she added a bit of magic.

Now we discovered the magic got names: eggs, cheese, fry.

This recipe is good for a quick lunch or to serve cut in little squares for an aperitivo or as a snack.


INGREDIENTS


300 gr frozen peas

5 eggs

125 gr of bacon

70 gr of breadcrumbs

50 gr of parmesan (if you like)

Salt/ Pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

1/2 onion

METHOD


Heat a pan with a spoon of olive oil

Cut 1/2 onion in little squares and cook it until softened and golden

Add the bacon and keep stirring until cooked

Add now the peas to the onion and the bacon and cook them until they become soft and add a teaspoon of salt to taste

Beat the eggs in a bowl with salt and pepper to taste

Once the peas are ready move them in the large bowl with the eggs, add the breadcrumbs and mix them quickly

Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and pour in the egg and peas mixture and distribute all over the pan with a spatula

Cook at medium heat for around 5 minutes per side, helping you with a large plate

to change the side. 

Let it cool to room temperature and serve, or chill: perfect both ways



COMMENTS


You can have this frittata both without parmesan and without bradcrumbs.

It will change a bit the consistence but it will be awesome anyway.

Warm or cold is a question of taste: we love both ways.

It can be saved, in a box, in the fridge for two days.
