Creme Fraiche Frittata with Berries Jubilee


This is an incredibly decadent recipe - tangy crème fraiche adds a whole new level of flavor to this classic egg dish, and the addition of warm berries spiked with Grand Marnier makes this way more than just breakfast...


Crème Fraiche Frittata with Berries Jubilee

- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 shot Grand Marnier
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup crème fraiche
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- Fresh mint leaves for garnish

How to Serve:

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and add the sugar; allow the mixture to lightly caramelize, but watch it closely so that it doesn’t burn. Add the berries and vanilla; heat for about 2 minutes, or until the berries begin to soften. Add the Grand Marnier.

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream lightly, then add the eggs and salt; keep mixing until well blended. Add the crème fraiche; stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a lightly oiled 8-inch cast iron skillet and place over medium heat.

After about 2 minutes, pour the berry mixture over the top of the frittata. Cook for another 3 or so minutes. When the edges of the frittata begin to puff up lightly, but while the middle is still wobbly, place the skillet beneath the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until the middle begins to firm up and the edges turn a light brown color.

Remove from oven; sprinkle with powdered sugar and garnish with mint leaves. Cut into wedges and serve. Serves 2.
