This frittata recipe submitted by Charleeta Southwick from Manteca, California is said to be an Olive Garden copycat recipe.
I haven’t had it, so I can’t say for sure that it is, but it looks really good.
What is a frittata? Simply an omelet, Italian style.
Olive Garden Copycaty Frittata Recipe
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups half and half cream
- 5 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 dash nutmeg
- 1 cup spaghetti, dry, broken into 2" pieces and cooked
- 4 green onions, sliced into rounds
- 6 slices bacon
- 4 ounces Fontina cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Cook the bacon and crumble it when cooled.
- Beat the eggs, half and half, cornstarch, salt and nutmeg thoroughly until all ingredients are completely blended.
- Blend the 2" spaghetti pieces, green onion rings and bacon pieces in another bowl until evenly mixed.
- Coat a 1 1/2 quart round baking dish, including walls, with spray or margarine. Empty the spaghetti mixture into the baking dish and spread evenly. Add the frittata batter to cover the filling mix.
- Bake in a 350°F oven for about 25 minutes until the center is set. When center is set, cover the frittata evenly with the Fontina and bake until cheese is golden.
- Turn off the heat and open the oven door. Let the frittata sit in the open oven for 15 minutes for the batter to set more firmly and make removing from the dish easy.
- Before serving, sprinkle with Parmesan and cut into 4 wedges.
Don’t have Fontina cheese? Substitute mozzarella, cheddar or another cheese that melts well and would taste good with the Parmesan.
