The frittata veggies, eggs and rhubarb for the bread, however, I can source most of that direct from the farm. Or for you folks, come by and see us today at the Coupeville or Bayview farmer's market. Here's how I'm thinking I'll do it....
First the frittata. This is a basic frittata recipe. Make sure to have a spatula, whisk and an oven-proof skillet (preferably cast-iron).
- eggs (anywhere from three, for a small frittata, to seven, for a large frittata)
- salt (sea salt is preferred)
- milk (optional)
- oil or butter (to prevent sticking)
- Cheese, grated. We prefer Little Brown Farm's capriezella. About 1/4 to 1/2 cup.
- Mix the eggs, salt, and pepper together in a bowl or cup with a
whisk or fork until thoroughly mixed. I like to add a splash of milk for
taste and consistency. Experiment with this to find your own
- Turn on the cooktop to medium heat. Put the oil or butter into
the cast iron skillet and place the skillet on the cooktop. Spread the
oil or butter around, then add the egg mixture.
- Preheat the broiler to high heat. And sprinkle in the cheese mixture.
- Next, take the skillet off the cooktop and place it in the oven
under the broiler. Broil for a few minutes, until the top just starts
to brown and bubble.
- Remove the skillet from the oven with an oven mitt. Careful! The skillet handle will be very hot!
Then....once the whole thing is done I'm going to lay it on a beautiful spread of flowering pea vines and next to it I'm going to plate up that amazing looking cheese from Little Brown Farm (whatever the heck it is!) with some gorgeous French Breakfast radishes, a plate of sausage, the rhubarb bread still warm and sliced and drizzled with Island Apiaries honey and the dessert from TreeTop ready in the waiting. Voila!
Oh yes...and here is the Rhubarb Bread recipe (courtesy of my mom who found this somewhere....).
MIMIRENEE’S BEST RHUBARB BREAD EVER!
1-1/2 C brown sugar
2/3 C butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
1 C sour milk or buttermilk (I put some lemon juice in my cup of milk)
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 C nuts, chopped (I used walnuts)
2 C finely chopped rhubarb
Sprinkle of brown sugar for topping
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees and grease the bottoms of 2 loaf pans.
In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and butter together until creamy. Blend in egg, milk and vanilla. Gradually add flour, baking soda and salt until batter is smooth. Gently fold in nuts and rhubarb.
Pour into loaf pans and lightly sprinkle brown sugar over top of loaves. Bake for 1 hour or until top is browned and a toothpick comes out of the center clean.
Yum! Yum! Hope everyone has a GREAT Mother's Day!
