Duck Egg Frittata with Braising Greens

Packed with fingerling potatoes, greens and Grana-style cheese, this easy frittata boasts incredibly fresh flavor.

Ingredients:
6 duck eggs
1 pint fingerling potatoes, washed and thinly-sliced
4 cups braising greens, torn into bite-sized pieces as needed
1 clove garlic
½ cup grated Grana-style cheese
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 375°.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced potatoes to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and then sauté for about 6 to 8 minutes, until tender but firm. Remove from the skillet. Add another tablespoon of oil, then add the greens. Sauté for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the greens are just wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the skillet.

3. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cheese and thyme with a pinch of salt and pepper. Return the potatoes to the skillet, arranging in an even layer at the bottom. Top with the greens and then pour eggs evenly over. Drizzle olive oil around the edge of the pan to ensure easy removal.

4. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the eggs have completely set in the center. Serve straight out of the skillet, cut into wedges, or flip onto a serving plate.

Fall Provisions Recipes

After months of avoiding turning on a hot oven, the return of some cooler, drippy days have us hankering to get back in the kitchen once again. Thus, this week’s lineup is full of fall provisions to help you stock your shelves—from bread flour, yeast and focaccia bread to Grana-style cheese and cultured butter with sea salt—and an array of culinary delights to cook up however you please. Have fun experimenting with silky duck eggs, vibrantly-hued French peppers, heirloom tomatoes and other seasonal produce, plus we’ve included our cobbler crust mix and the last of the peaches so that you can pop one last summery cobbler into that oven.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Spring Pasta with Asparagus, Kale & Olive Oil-Fried Duck Eggs

This light, creamy pasta is a show-stopper, topped with spring produce and fried duck eggs.

Ingredients:
1 pound pasta
1 large bunch Lacinato kale, greens stripped of tough ribs, washed and coarsely chopped
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed of root ends, and cut into 2-inch-long pieces
1-2 stalks of green garlic, trimmed of root ends and minced
4 duck eggs
2-3 tablespoons butter
4-5 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 tablespoons freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Method:
1. Bring a large pot of heavily-salted water to a boil. Drop in pasta noodles and cook according to package directions, or until al dente, about 7-8 minutes. Drain and toss with 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil. Set aside.

2. In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmery, then add the green garlic, asparagus and kale leaves, tossing to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the garlic is fragrant, the greens are wilted, and the asparagus are tender. Remove from the heat and set aside.

3. Meanwhile, heat another 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat until shimmery. Carefully crack 1 duck egg and drop into the pan, seasoning generously with salt and pepper. Fry until whites are set and crispy around the edges, but yolk is still runny, about 3-4 minutes. Repeat with remaining eggs.

4. Add the pasta to the skillet with the kale, return to medium heat briefly, and toss with remaining tablespoon of butter and fresh parsley, until all are combined. Pile noodles into 4 individual serving bowls and top each with a fried duck egg. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired.
