Do you love making delicious meals that are easy?! Yeah, you know I do and today’s recipe for a Tomato Spinach and Pancetta Frittata is just that. I know, it doesn’t look like it would be something that you could literally throw together and it cook itself, but it really is – see the recipe below!
A few weeks ago I received an email asking if I would like to learn more about a newer kitchen appliance from Philips [to review at no cost to me]. When I read the specs on the Philips Airfryer, I have to admit, I was totally intrigued and totally a skeptic. I was so intrigued [and still skeptical] that I sent the link to my husband and my best friend saying “I’m going to eat fried chicken every day if this thing really works!”
You see, here in the South, we like our fried foods. Just ask my blogging friends that joined me in east Tennessee for a tour of Sevierville, TN. They were a little taken a back that at almost every meal we had something fried. I simply explained that this is the way we eat, even though we know it isn’t the healthiest form of eating we still do it. But that’s why I was SO excited about the Airfryer!
Anyone else curious about just how foods turn out when you cook in the Airfryer? Well, I’m so excited to share with you the results with this statement…
We’ve had homemade french fries 3 times in the last week.
Normally I’d be totally embarrassed to admit that, BUT this time I’m not. Because I’ve “fried” them in the Philips Airfryer with less than 1 tbsp of EVOO and they’ve turned out perfectly golden and crunchy. If you don’t believe me, you can see my French Fries instagram picture!
The French Fries aren’t all I’m raving about with the Philips Airfryer though. After I watched a live demonstration of the machine by none other than Luca Manfé, MasterChef Winner, I learned more about the machine and learned what I HAD to make as my 2nd meal in the Airfryer… a Frittata!
He totally had me at the “Set it and Forget it” idea. You know, the fact that I could crumble up some sausage [but for my recipe I used Pancetta] and let it cook with NO STIRRING for 5 minutes in the machine. And then the fact that I could come back, in between getting Sophia’s clothes on for school, and pour in my scrambled eggs and other ingredients and they would be finished in 5 minutes again… without stirring!
I could pretty much smell the Frittata through my computer screen so I just knew I had to make one too! And boy was hubby glad I did! I think he’s most impressed with the Frittata while I’m obsessed with the fries.
Before we get into the details and recipe for the Frittata, I do want to share a couple of other fun things about the Airfryer.
- Temperature ranges from 180 to 390 degrees.
- Built-in timer with auto shut-off.
- Can Fry, Bake, Grill [with grill pan sold separately].
- Small, Compact Machine that produces big results – great for countertops and small spaces. Doesn’t require lots of energy to heat up AND no fried food smells!
- It’s NOT just for breakfast foods or frying – think cupcakes, brownies, steak, and so much more!
For more information on the Philips Airfryer, be sure to visit philips.com or if you’re ready to purchase you can find the Airfryer online at Amazon, where they carry all the additional pans and pieces you can use in the Fryer!
Now, how about that Frittata recipe?! It’s not required that you have the Philips Airfryer to make it, but I can tell you it is MUCH, MUCH easier with the Airfryer! In his demonstration, Chef Luca actually just put some sausage in the Airfryer and left it – for 5 minutes – without touching it and it comes out perfectly cooked!
- 3 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Pancetta
- 1/2 Tomato [cut into cubes]
- 1/4 cup Spinach
- 1/4 cup Shaved Grana Padano Parmesan
- Can substitute Pancetta with cut up bacon, sausage, or any other meat of your choice.
- Heat the Pancetta in a pan [or the Philip Air Fryer for really hands off cooking] for about 5 minutes.
- I like to add the tomato early with the Pancetta so it's nice and cooked.
- Once your Pancetta is ready, stir in your scrambled eggs, Grana Padano Parmesan Cheese, and Spinach. Cook for an additional 5 minutes [or until your eggs are light and fluffy].
