Tuscan Frittata & a GIVEAWAY!


I WISH you could smell these products! I can’t tell you how EXCITED I am about these! Okay I guess I’m going to have to try to contain my giddiness & put some words to screen (tee hee). I recently received some amazing products from The Scrumptious Pantry.

The Scrumptious Pantry is a fantastic company. They only source from small artisan producers, whenever possible right at the source of the primary ingredient – the farmer. The artisans of THE SCRUMPTIOUS PANTRY are dedicated to natural food making. They do not believe in artificial flavors, conserving agents or other artificial ingredients interfering with their work. So what you get is real food from real people!

In most cases, the products are organically grown and prepared, because they care for sustainable agriculture and eating. It is essential for the future of farming and the health of both nature and people. Therefore they commit to only bringing those products to the US that are unique and cannot be produced in a similar quality in the US. Pretty nice, eh? These are products that are right up my alley! I really can’t say enough how INCREDIBLE these products smelled, even before opening the jars. They’re lovingly packaged and have fotos of the actual farmers right on the label. How’s that for cozy!

I received FULL size samples of the Roasting and Grilling Salt: (here’s what the label says) “Sunny herbs from Roberta and Giulio’s farm have been blended with fine sea salt for an intensely flavorful spice rub for fish, roasts or other meat dishes.”

I also received a jar of the Sundried Tomato Spread (here’s what the label says) “A classic Italian treat, Roberta and Giulio lay out the freshly picked tomatoes to dry, before they are chopped up and mixed with estate grown chili peppers, oregano and olive oil for this tasty spread.” My mouth is watering this is so GOOD! BUONISSIMO!

I was so excited and knew I wanted to make the Tuscan Frittata recipe on the jar of the Roasting and Grilling Salt right away! I’ll def be making this again & again! It was so easy to throw together and oh yeah, SCRUMPTIOUS! Do you see how scrumptious that looks? Recipe for the Frittata is below…

Adapted from The Scrumptious Pantry Roasting and Grilling Salt Jar
What you’ll need:
1/2 small onion – Chopped
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large potato – peeled & sliced into thin rounds (I used my mandolin)
4 eggs – beaten
Sprinkling of Roasting and Grilling Salt

What to do:
For a classic Tuscan Frittata fry the chopped onion and sliced potatoes in olive oil over medium heat until potatoes are mostly cooked through. Sprinkle with this roasting and grilling salt and let cool off awhile. In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Spray an ovenproof pan with cooking spray. Let potatoes and onions slide into egg mixture and combine well. Pour mixture in coated frying pan and bake at 350 degrees till done.

Buon Appetito!

I feel like I know Roberta & Giulio at this point. So much so, that I think that I would feel right at home visiting them on their farm and helping them harvest their goods, then sit down and enjoy a meal together along with some amazing wine! So what do you think Roberta and Giulio? How about June? Fammi sapere ; )

    The salt for pork or chicken, or for roast potatoes. The tomato spread for bread, the tomato spread over cream cheese and served with crackers.

    The tomato mixture into Aiglia Oil (sp?) pasta with garlic and oil and the salt on a beef roast as a dry rub with thyme and crushed garlic. YUM!

    I would have to try the fritatta and the salts would also have to go on grilled meats and veggies. The tomato spread would make a nice bruschetta. Best of all when I win you can just give me the prize when I come to your class. :-)

    I would use the spread on bruschetta, it can’t get any betta!! The Roasting & Grilling Salt would be fantastic on shrimp that is sauteed in olive oil – simple, but oh, so good. I can “taste” it now!

  8. 208

    I would use the spread on the sourdough bread I just made!! The salts I would use on grilled chicken and shrimp.

    The salt sounds like it’d be great on just about any roast — I’d probably try a pork shoulder roast first (one of my favorites!).

    The tomato sounds like a great addition to a sandwich — it’d be a nice savory addition.

    I make my own herb salt according to a Tuscan recipe my Italian friend passed on to me. It is basicly a blend of fresh garlic, rosemary, sage and parsley packed in sea salt. I use it in SOOoooo many things.
    1. It is marvelous rubbed on a pork loin and really goes with any sort of roasted or grilled meat.
    2. It adds a real depth to roasted pototoes or used to season homemade mashed potatoes.
    3. I love to make a simple sauce for delicate cheese tortellini with just some butter, olive oil and the herb salt. Devine!
    4. My favorite is the herb salted mushrooms. Sauted with a bit of spring onion it is heavenly!
    5. And the list goes on and on!!

    I would use the spices on meats and maybe even in my omelettes and the tomatoes I would use on pasta dishes or sandwiches, or maybe even omelettes again!

    The salts, I would try on some wonderful artisan bread. The spread could go on after or the spread would be great for polenta crisps.

    Porchetta, porchetta, porchetta! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. And then there is thin Tuscan crust pizza, or perhaps focaccia, but definitely porchetta. MMmmm taken to a friend’s wood-burning oven and cooked there.
