Guest Post: Rosemary & Mushroom Frittata by Hey Modest Marce

We have a guest in the kitchen! We're thrilled to welcome a new face to the blog, Marcella of Hey Modest Marce. She's joining us this morning with a stunning frittata to make any morning worth getting out of bed for. 



What is a better way to start the morning then with a fresh rosemary & mushroom frittata?! The earthy flavours from both the rosemary & mushroom blend compliment the eggs & smoky gruyere cheese perfectly. Whenever I am hosting a breakfast or brunch frittata is always on my menu. For this particular recipe I chose to use a combination of oyster, shiitake & mini white mushrooms, but you can use whatever blend of mushrooms you like best! Frittatas are a dish I love experimenting with in the kitchen & testing out different flavour combinations. It is safe to say this one is at the top of my list!

Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 sprig of fresh rosemary chopped

1.5 cups smoked Gruyere cheese, shredded
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt & pepper, too taste

Method
1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
2. In a cast iron skillet on low heat add oil, butter, garlic, onions, rosemary & mushrooms. Cook until the onions begin to turn translucent & the mushrooms have softened. Season with salt & pepper. Let cool to room temperature.
3. In a mixing bowl lightly whisk eggs. Stir in shredded cheese, breadcrumbs, mushroom mixture, salt & pepper.
4. Pour back into a well greased skillet & bake for 20 minutes or until the eggs are puffed & fully cooked.
5. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. garnish with fresh rosemary!
