Packed with a flavorful medley of chewy wild rice and three kinds of mushrooms, this satisfying frittata is perfect for Sunday brunch. Don’t worry if you can only find one kind of mushroom — the richly aromatic top of baked Parmesan and crisp prosciutto will make up for it.

ingredients

  • For the Wild Rice:
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup wild rice (see Tip), rinsed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • For the Frittata:
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 pound mixed mushrooms (cremini, white button, shiitake), sliced
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto (about 2 ounces), chopped

directions

FOR THE WILD RICE: Combine the water, rice and salt in a small heavy saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook until the rice is tender with a slight bite, 40 to 50 minutes. Drain; you’ll have about 1 1/2 cups cooked rice.

FOR THE FRITTATA: About 30 minutes after you start cooking the rice, beat the eggs and egg whites in a large bowl with parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and nutmeg.

Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.

Heat the oil in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet, preferably cast-iron, over medium heat. Add the onion and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the rosemary, then add the mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until they release their liquid and the pan is dry, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in the rice.

Pour the reserved egg mixture evenly over the rice and vegetables. Partially cover and cook until set around the edges, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and prosciutto. Place the pan under the broiler and broil until the eggs are set and the top is nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Tip: &lt;br&gt;Ingredient Note: Regular wild rice takes 40 to 50 minutes to cook. To save time, look for quick-cooking varieties, which can be on the table in less than 30 minutes, or instant wild rice, which is done in 10 minutes or less. <br><br>Make Ahead: Prepare the rice (Step 1), cool and store airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
