Roasted Vegetable Queso Frittata

Recipe by Jessica Merchant

Serves 4-6

INGREDIENTS

Vegetables:

1⁄2 red onion, diced

1⁄2 green bell pepper, chopped

1⁄2 red bell pepper, chopped

1 cup fresh or thawed frozen sweet corn kernels

1 cup broccoli florets, chopped

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces mushrooms, chopped

Queso:

2⁄3 cup heavy cream

12 ounces white cheddar cheese, freshly grated

Frittata:

8 large eggs

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

PREPARATION

For the vegetables, preheat the oven to 450ºF. Add the onions, peppers, corn, and broccoli to a large bowl and toss them with 11⁄2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the salt, and pepper. Add the mushrooms to another bowl and toss with the remaining olive oil. Add all of the vegetables to a nonstick baking sheet. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, tossing once during the cooking time.

While the vegetables are roasting, make the queso. Heat the cream in a saucepan over medium heat until it bubbles along the edges. Add the cheese and stir constantly until it is all melted. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside. If the cheese firms up too much before you need to use it, simply warm it over low heat and stir until it becomes melty again.

For the frittata, add the eggs, garlic, cream, salt, and pepper to a large bowl and whisk. Add the vegetables to a 10-inch ovenproof skillet and mix them with a few spoonfuls of the queso sauce. Pour the eggs over the top of the vegetables and then spoon the remaining queso over the top. Bake the frittata until the eggs are set and the top is golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the frittata cool in the skillet for 10 minutes before slicing.
