As you’re undoubtedly aware, we here at the PassionFruits have opinions. Lots of them. Sometimes they’re expert, sometimes they’re nebulous, and sometimes ill-informed, they’re strongly held nevertheless. One of MY opinions, which may fall into all of the above categories, is that non-stick pans are the work of the devil. And not in a good way. Ergo, I do not own a non-stick pan. This became a challenge last time I tried to make a frittata/tortilla. It wasn’t a disaster, by any stretch, but I’m not the “not-a-disaster” guy so that didn’t quite work for me.
And, since I had a lovely piece of cured Spanish chorizo and a serious yen for a nice little frittata for dinner on Friday, I felt the need to revisit and vanquish this little problem with the help of my beloved parchment paper. Of course, the ever-helpful Mr. T opined that people are much more likely to have a non-stick fry pan than they are to have parchment paper. Moving on from that minor distraction, I went ahead and made my chorizo frittata, sauteing the filling ingredients before wiping out the pan and fitting it with a round of parchment and pouring everything back in, heating it back up, and heaving it all in the oven. The resulting disc of potatoe-y, eggy, sausage-y goodness was very tasty indeed, and slipped from the NOT non-stick pan like a champ. The smoky, meaty chorizo was an excellent foil for the sweet onion and the parsely’s green pungency was lovely.
