Spring Fast Food

When eggs are cheap or free from country friends and you are in no mood to fix dinner, but want something wonderful (said Tim Allenesque from "For Richer or Poorer") make a Fritatta. Add crisp French bread and a big ol' salad. Viola. Dinner is served. There are lots of recipes out there. Here's the basics: Scramble 8-18 eggs, add milk or cream to lighten and whisk. Scramble till only slightly scrambled, with lots of uncooked eggs amongst the "islands" of cooked eggs. Add cheese, herbs, mushrooms, sausage, etc...whatever you have on hand. We like to saute onions and garlic, add the eggs and then put in lots of mushroom, parsley, and place tomatoes on top. Then pop in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 until the eggs are done cooking. Mmm.
