    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Onions and garlic are slowly pan-cooked until caramelised and then used as the base of a delicious frittata. Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Recipes website. Obviously you can use your own pesto recipe or a pesto from your favourite deli in place of the commercially available one. I left the Leggo's pesto named in the original recipe in this recipe, as that makes for a quicker version when time is limited. For the best results from this simple dish, use free range eggs.

      Sprinkle the egg mixture with the grated cheese (and feta, if you are using part feta) and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste; and finish cooking the frittata under a preheated grill for 3-4 minutes or until the frittata has set.

      Slide the frittata out of the pan onto a serving platter and serve hot or at room temperature.

      delicious and simple. I made this a couple of days ago needing eggs to eat with for my sore mouth. Use a smooth nut and basil pesto, flavors exploded

      We loved this for a light supper while out in the RV. Great flavors! I used Classico bottled pesto and sharp cheddar, but will try it with feta next time. Caramelizing onions really made for a richer flavor than just sauteing them.

      Yummy! Just what I was looking for something to use up some pesto I already had. I made as directed except I added a handful of chopped ham after the onions were carmelized. This was a great addition to an already fantastic dish. I used colby and jack cheese. I barely got a pic because DH was wanting to dig in as soon as I pulled it out of the oven. Thank You bluemoon downunder for a wonderful breakfast. Made for 123 hit wonders
