frittata with roasted peaches and homemade caciotta
- 10-11 oz. ripe, tasty peaches
- olive oil
- 6 pastured eggs
- sea salt
- 1 oz. wedge of [homemade] caciotta, or similar cheese(e.g., Monterey Jack or Colby, plain)
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat that is wider and longer than the sheet. Wash peaches and quarter them. Peel them now or after they are baked. Place peaches on the sheet on a single layer. Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Let peaches cool while you prepare the eggs. If not done before, peel the peaches. Cut each quarter in half lengthwise and then slice each piece.
Oil a 10-inch skillet and warm up. Break the eggs in a bowl and whisk them lightly until just blended. Add a couple of pinches of salt and whisk briefly. Add the juice possibly released by the peaches during roasting plus enough water to make 3 tablespoons. Whisk lightly to incorporate.
Pour the eggs slowly into the skillet. Gently slide the peaches into the pan and arrange them so they are evenly distributed. Cook over low heat until the eggs are set. In the meantime, turn on the broiler. (If your oven allows it, choose the "low" setting.)
Cut the wedge of cheese into thin slices. When the edge of the frittata is set, evenly distribute the cheese on the surface. After the edge is well set, run a spatula under it and shake the frittata gently to ensure the bottom does not stick to the pan.
When the eggs are set, place the skillet in the oven for a couple of minutes, leaving the door ajar. Take the skillet out of the oven (don't forget that the handle is hot) and let the frittata rest for of a few minutes, then slide it onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges and serve. As as is usual with frittata, you can store leftovers in the fridge and enjoy them the following day, at room temperature.
