Frittata with Shallots & Pancetta
- 8 oz. pancetta, diced
- 6 oz. shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
- 12 eggs
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 4 oz. Gruyère cheese, grated
- 2 Tbs. minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1 Tbs. olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 8 oz. mixed salad greens
- 1 to 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, cheese and parsley. Stir in the pancetta and shallots.
In the deep half of a frittata pan over medium-low heat, warm the 1 Tbs. olive oil. Add the egg mixture and cook until the eggs begin to set, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula during the first 2 minutes of cooking.
Place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and flip the frittata into the shallow pan. Cook, covered, until the eggs are completely set, 7 to 10 minutes. Gently shake the pan to loosen the frittata and slide it onto a serving plate. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
In a bowl, toss the salad greens with the lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Cut the frittata into slices and serve the salad alongside. Serves 8 to 10.
