Crab frittata

When I’m going away to a cottage, I love to volunteer for the breakfast. I find it to be the most laidback meal to prepare. A couple of weeks ago, I made a crab frittata. Frittata is basically a quiche without crust. It took 15 minutes to prepare and just 35 minutes in the oven, but it tasted like I’d slaved over it for hours. It’s definitely a keeper!

Take a look:

 Here’s the recipe:


12 eggs

1 cup (250 mL) milk or cream

2 cups (500 mL) shredded crab or chopped imitation crab

1 bunch of asparagus, chopped

4 green onions, thinly sliced

½ cup (125 mL) freshly chopped dill

130g log goat’s cheese


Whisk eggs with milk in a large bowl. Stir in crab, asparagus, onions and dill. Pour into a lightly oiled 9X13 in. (3 L) baking dish. Crumble goat cheese overtop. Bake at 350F (180C) until the eggs are set, about 35 to 45 min.


I also used up some leftover potatoes from the night before. I dressed them up with a bay spice and crumbled bacon for a quick homefries side dish.
