F-The Irony – F for Frittata, Frustration, Fail? Sure, history has proven that accidents and failures in the kitchen have resulted in many new recipes and flavor combinations. This is one that I’ll categorize under frustration. I’ve attempted the “Frittata” several times this past year tweaking here and adjusting or omitting there. Don’t get me wrong; the flavors are exactly where I want them to be, incredible and delicious. It’s the texture that comes out soft and in prior attempts, mushy even. The texture was better suited maybe as a dip :-). That is my only criticism at this time – the texture, is it that of a frittata? I’ll keep at it. It does taste great and we manage to devour it each time. This is one recipe I’ll repost in the future again once perfected. Enjoy!
