Maz Kanata Frittata
This frittata is named for the character Maz Kanata in Star Wars episodes VII – IX, and it’s pretty simple to prepare. But make sure you have a medium-sized ovenproof skillet!
Once the onion is diced and the zucchini and tomatoes are sliced, the onion and zucchini are cooked over the stove. While they cook, the eggs, cheese and milk are combined. Once the zucchini and onion are done, the egg mixture is poured over top and the tomato slices are placed on top of the whole mixture using tongs.
The frittata is cooked for a minute or two over the stove until the edges begin to set, and then put into the oven until it’s completely cooked through. I needed about 5 more minutes than the recipe called for.
This needs to rest for about 10 minutes before you cut into wedges and serve.
I’ve never actually eaten a frittata before, and while I didn’t think it would be bad I didn’t think it would be as good as it was! The tomatoes added a little bit of sweetness, and I especially loved the onion!
The actual preparation is not too difficult, but you’ll need to make sure the eggs are cooked through while in the oven and be careful not to drown the tomatoes when adding them to the top. It also wasn’t very easy to cut the frittata and remove the slices without damaging my pan. A plastic pie cutter might help.
You’ll need onion, zucchini, eggs, mozzarella cheese, milk, and tomatoes.
