Playing Frittata Nests


  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 small zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 leeks, thinly sliced and washed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


Serves: 4 to 6 as a snack




Preheat oven to 400F.



In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, parsley, Parmigiano-Reggiano, cream and some salt and pepper. Set aside.



Trim zucchini ends and grate each one lengthwise over a box grater to take the flesh off without pulling out any of the seeds. Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Saut the leeks and zucchini until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.



Baste the inside of each cup of a six-cup muffin pan with some melted butter. Divide the leek mixture between the six cups. Push the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of each cup to form a nest. Divide the egg mixture between the six cups, pouring it directly into each next. Bake until the eggs are set and puffed, 8 to 10 minutes.



Let set a minute before removing. Serve warm.
