Onion and Tomato Frittata with Garlic Bread

Another Week of BM 30 th edition, this week my theme is Combo Recipes. Valli has given some popular combo recipes list to us, we have to choose three recipes from that list. All the recipes from that list are very popular combo dishes. Apart from this recipe most of the recipes in the list are Indian recipes. When I first check this list I thought of making some poori and aloo ki sabji combo. Then I realise that I have posted  a few recipes of poori and sabji. fitatta garlic bread
                                                                     There is one wonder full combo dish in this list and that is a dessert Rasagulla with rabadi. But I don't want to choose sweet dish so dropped that plan. Then this one caught my attention. Since long time I didn't make any Italian dish at home. I didn't bake bread after I came to India that means I didn't bake any bread from 2 years. ofcouse I am baking cakes and cookies but not bread. So I wanted to try my hand in bread baking with Indian flour.

I wanted to bake pav buns but I couldn't,t find a right pan for that so I baked it in a round cake pan. I didn't satisfy with the shape, but the texture of the bread was pretty good will post the recipe for sure. That was a garlic flavored bread.

 Now Then next part in this combination dish is Frittata. Frittata is a egg based dish originated fro Italy. This recipe sounds like and looks like omelet, with little changes. This dish is made with beaten eggs mixed with chopped vegetables or with meat cubes and flavored with herbs. Some time can add  grated cheese also to this egg mixture. You can use any chopped vegetables like onion, tomato, potato, brocoli, spinach, mushrooms. This can be served with bread, salads, beans and olives.

                                                             I made onion and tomato frittata with Garlic bread. Normally frittata will be cook in a skillet on a low flame the shift it in to hot oven to cook the top till light golden. There are many variations for this frittata recipe but the basic Italian frittata recipe is made with beaten eggs and vegetables or meat and cheese. Today I baked the frittata in  muffin tins to make individual portions and you can call them mini frittata. so lets check the recipe for Frittata..
Eggs  --- 3
Onion  ---  1 big cut in to slices
Tomato  --- 1 big cut in to cubes
 Garlic  --- 2 cloves crushed
Parmesan cheese  ---- 1 tab sp grated
Milk  ---- 2 tab sp
Salt to ttaste
Olive oil  ---   1 tab sp
Pepper powder  --- 1/2 tea sp
1. Beat eggs in a bowl then add onion slices, crushed garlic, salt, pepper powder, milk and mix well then add tomato cubes mix well.
2. Add cheese mix well.
3. Now hear olive oil in a skillet and pour the egg mixture and keep the flame in low cook till the edges leaveing the pan, cover with a lid and cook for few minutes.
4. When the edges are leaving from the sides of the pan switch off the heat.
By that time pre heat the oven.
5.  Now place the egg mixture skillet in the pre heated oven and cook till the top turns in to golden.
Remove from oven and serve hot with bread and salad.
This is my first post for Blogging Marathon 30th edition under combo Dishes theme let's check other BM members recipes here
