Frittata with Pancetta and Chives

If pancetta isn’t available, use prosciutto or spicy Italian sausage—increase the cooking time if using raw sausage instead of a cured meat.

Serves: 4Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 25 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. pancetta, cut into ¼" thick slices
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 8 extra-large eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. whole milk
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh chives

Directions

  • Cut the pancetta into ¼" dice. Heat the oil in a medium-sized nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the pancetta and reduce heat to low; cook until the fat is rendered and the pancetta begins to get crisp, but not brown, about 7 to 9 minutes.
  • Preheat broiler. Combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl and whisk until well mixed.
  • Pour the beaten eggs into the pan with the pancetta on low heat. Add the chives. Stir briefly with a wooden spoon and then let the eggs cook slowly, without stirring. After 1 minute, cover the pan and cook the eggs until almost firm, about 7 minutes.
  • Place the frittata under the broiler for 30 seconds to 1 minute, just until set and firm and starting to brown on top. Cut into wedges and serve hot.
