Sweet Corn Frittata With Cherry Tomato Compote recipe | Epicurious.com


· 2 tablespoons olive oil· 2 cloves of garlic, minced· 2 cups cherry tomatoes (any variety will work)· ¼ cup dry white wine· 8 to 10 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced· Healthy pinch of fine sea salt· Freshly ground black pepper· 2 tablespoons cooking fat· 1 bunch of scallions, white parts and green parts diced separately· 2 cloves of garlic, minced· 1 medium potato, scrubbed and cut into 1/4-inch chunks· 2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels· 4 large eggs· ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes· 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled


Step 1PreparationMake the compote: Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, for about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes longer. Pour in the wine and cook until the wine is reduced by about half. Add the basil, salt, and pepper and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes burst and become fragrant, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside the tomatoes in a bowl.Step 2Make the frittata: Position an oven rack about 3 inches from the top and preheat the broiler.Step 3In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium, heat 1 tablespoon of the cooking fat. Add the diced white part of the scallions and the minced garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the potato and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the potato softens, about 10 minutes. Add the corn and continue to cook for about 2 minutes longer.Step 4In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, red pepper flakes, and half the feta cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the veggie mixture in the skillet and top with the remainder of the cheese. Stir in the potato mixture and the scallion greens.Step 5Wipe out the skillet and, over medium-high, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of cooking fat. Cook the frittata, lifting up the cooked egg around the edges with a rubber spatula to let the uncooked eggs flow underneath, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, giving the pan a shake now and again, until the eggs are mostly set but the center is still slightly jiggly, 3 to 5 minutes more.Step 6Transfer the frittata to the oven and broil until the top is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes (keep a close eye on the frittata, as it can easily burn). Serve topped with the tomato compote.Step 7From Local Dirt: Seasonal Recipes for Eating Close to Home © 2020 by Andrea Bemis.
