Frittata with Broccoli Rabe


For the Frittata:

  • 1 pound fresh broccoli rabe, blanched
  • 2 cups grated pecorino cheese
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 10 large eggs
  • 6 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 0.5 cup milk
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper


  • Clean the Broccoli Rabe. Wash and cut into small pieces and blanch.
  • In a bowl add the bread crumbs, cheese, garlic and mix well. Add salt and pepper as desired.
  • In a separate bowl beat the 10 eggs with the milk. Add the eggs to the mixture and mix very well. Add 4 Tbs of EV olive oil and continue mixing.
  • Add the Broccoli Rabe and mix well.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
  • In a 10" cast iron skillet add 1/2 cup of EV olive oil and put on the stove. Once the oil is hot, add the mixture to the pan and quickly spread it evenly.
  • Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes on the stove and then transfer the pan to the top level of your oven.
  • Let it cook for 50 minutes (or once the top colors to your liking)  and you will have a perfect and crispy Frittata.
