Serves 4


  • 8 extra-large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 pound chorizo or Italian sausage, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup cooked corn kernels
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, cut into thin strips


Whisk the eggs and milk vigorously. Mix in salt and pepper to taste and add the milk. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In an ovenproof pan, thoroughly cook the chorizo or Italian sausage in the olive oil. Turn the heat to medium-high and pour the eggs into the pan.

Let the eggs set for several seconds. With a heatproof rubber spatula, gently stir the eggs, starting from the center. This stirring makes the frittata puff up more in the oven.

Lift the edges so that the eggs flow to the bottom. When the frittata is half-set, add the corn and Monterey Jack cheese.

Transfer the pan to the heated oven. Cook for about 10 minutes (less if you like runny eggs), until puffed and golden.
