Dutch Pancake Divine w/or without Meyer Lemon

I tried my hand at one yesterday, the result was divine! I was gifted a bag of delish and complicated (tasting) Meyer lemons recently, a squeeze of one wedge really added to the finished product here. Use regular lemon if that’s what you have, by all means. The tartness of any lemon will add to the good flavor experience. The second one I made I enjoyed it with a bit of regular fresh lemon juice, much 😉 powdered sugar and apricot preserves, oh my yumminess! Good combo, trust me.

The bonus? It’s also incredibly easy. But to make this classic Italian dish even easier, swap the traditional (and tricky) folding-and-flipping stovetop technique for a stir-and-bake one. The result will be a frittata with a silky texture that hovers between quiche and omelet. That technique is covered in the infographic below, along with six winning flavor combinations. These are great starting points for those who are new to frittatas, but they’re definitely not the end. The whole point of a frittata is that you can make it anytime, with almost anything. Just keep these few tips in mind. SIZE IT RIGHT Any 2-quart baking dish works well for this frittata. (For a classic look, bake your …
