holy frittata!

ok, i know you must be thinking... is this girl crazy(?), is she really showing us how to cook eggs!!? no! well YES, but these puppies are SO good and worth hearing me out for!!! when i was in Miami {over the weekend} i had the honor of cooking with my oldest brother, who is in fact a FABULOUS cook! he can whip up anything from a gourmet roast to a chocolate souffle that will blow your mind & look professional. oh, and of course a killer Frittata that i was (obviously} very impressed by. to put it in other words... i didn't know what it was to "reduce" balsamic vinegar until he clued me in. i thought it meant to literally reduce... like USE LESS! so here it is, a pepper-y (& fluffy) frittata to mix up your morning ritual!

4 eggs (yolks & whites)
2 just yokes
5 grinds of sea salt
6 grinds of peeper (*this is the key! lots of pepper!)
6 grinds italian seasoning
 a splash of water
colby jack cheese (as much as you like)

HOW TO make a Frittata...
{heat that pan up! we want these puppies to cook perfectly... a couple notches past medium is perfect! add butter.}
 {combine eggs, egg yokes, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, and a little splash of water... now get whisking!!}
 {the important part(!!!) make sure to constantly lift the bottom on the eggs... in a circular motion, like above photos!}
 {keep on lifting those eggs until almost completely cooked... then (gently) flip! good luck! then... turn off the heat (once flipped) and grade your cheese onto the eggs... cover to melt.}
{once cheese is melt-y and delicious looking... garnish the top with more italian seasoning & serve! to spice things up, add a little green tobasco to the top of your creation. and, ENJOY!}

hungry??? i am!

I hate being the person to leave corrections in your comments, but you accidentally put "(genitally) flip" instead of "gently." Unless you meant genitally. In which case, I think you left out the most interesting photo of the process ;)
