Dill & Cottage Cheese Frittata

Dill & Cottage Cheese Frittata

This soft and moist frittata contains cottage cheese, which is matched with the refreshing fragrance of dill. I recommend this omelet for brunch.

Ingredients: 2-4 servings

Dill (roughly chopped)
2-3 bunches
Eggs
2
Milk
1 tablespoon
Salt
a scant 1/4 teaspoon
Pepper
a pinch
Cottage cheese
30 g
Butter
5 g
Olive oil
1 teaspoon
Dill for garnishing (chopped finely), black pepper (to garnish)
a small amount

Steps

1. Mix together the egg, milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Add the cottage cheese and chopped dill and quickly stir.
2. Heat butter and olive oil in a small frying pan. Pour in Step 1. Quickly stir it around and then lower the heat and leave it alone as it cooks.
3. When the surface underneath has browned, stop the heat and sprinkle with the dill garnish. Leave it as is for 2 minutes. (This is so the top surface hardens.)
4. Transfer the frittata to a plate and it's done. Optionally sprinkle with black pepper and serve.
5. Add Italian parsley. You could also add basil or any herb that goes well with eggs.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this in order to get rid of the leftover cottage cheese and dill. I used to always make frittatas with Parmesan cheese, but the cottage cheese makes it moist. The refreshing taste of cottage cheese also goes well with the fragrance of the dill. I really like this I turned it into a recipe so that I could remember how to make it.
