Meatless Fridays: Century Corned Tuna Frittata w/ Goat Cheese, Shallots & Garlic

Mabuhay!

Here's a dish that is easy to make, filling, healthy, delicious, and you can serve it hot or cold. It's also the perfect meal to add to your back-to-school menu:

Century Corned Tuna Frittata with Goat Cheese, 
Shallots & Garlic




 Ingredients:

2 cans of Century Corned Tuna, drained
10 pcs. fresh eggs
Choose Bounty Fresh Eggs, no chix poop on the egg shells.
Clockwise: 1/4 cup non-fat milk, grated parmesan cheese (optional), 1 small block of goat cheese
3 pcs. shallots, 3 pcs. garlic

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large mixing bowl, crack all 10 eggs, add salt and pepper to taste
Tip: If you're adding parmesan cheese, lessen the use of salt as the cheese is already salty.
Step 2: Add the non-fat milk
Step 3: Whisk together the eggs, milk, and parmesan cheese. Season it with salt and pepper.

Important: You will need a cast iron skillet or any pan without a handle that would NOT melt when placed inside the oven or a baking dish to cook this recipe.

Step 4: In a cast iron skillet, sauté garlic and shallots in extra virgin olive oil.
Tip: Be sure to oil the sides of the pan too.
Step 5: Add the corned tuna and cook for 2-3 mins.
Step 6: Spread out tuna evenly on bottom of skillet. Pour the egg mixture to the sautéd corned tuna
Step 7: Using a spatula, lift up the corned tuna mixture along the sides of the pan to let egg mixture flow underneath.
Step 8: Spread the goat cheese on top. When the mixture is about half set, put the whole pan inside the oven.
Step 9: Put the pan inside the pre-heated (400°F) oven and bake for 12-15 minutes...
...until frittata is puffy and golden.
Step 10: Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Step 11: Sprinkle spring onions or fresh basil leaves on top.
Step 11: Serve the frittata with sour cream
Tip: I recommend that you buy a good quality sour cream, it really makes a difference. We buy Bulla Premium Sour Cream from Santi's.

Plating:

Top the frittata with a dollop of sour creammm...
So yummy and filling! Perfect to eat any time of the day!
Aryanna already told me she wanted this as part of her lunch box menu. Remember, it's back-to-school soon!


Shoppingero/shoppingera, have you prepared a back-to-school menu?

I LIKE!!! My boy's fave is Century Corned Tuna sauteed with onions and mushrooms...I think he will like this frittata too!

I just noticed on your Important note: "... any pan without a handle that would MELT when placed inside the oven or a baking dish to cook this recipe." - you mean NOT MELT right? :)))
