Guinea Hen Egg Frittata

I made a frittata with my guinea hen eggs!  It was yummy.  Here's the recipe:

Guinea Hen Egg Frittata

• Five guinea hen eggs plus three chicken eggs (you can substitute by using 6 chicken eggs) - whisked together in small bowl
• Lots of sage
• Cayenne Pepper
• Sea Salt
• Cumin
• Paprkia
• Cilantro
• Pepperjack cheese
• One medium sizes potato cut into thin slices
• 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

Preheat oven to 450*

In a large skillet (we use cast iron), saute the onions in olive oil and add all the spices - adjust amount to your own taste.  Cook until onions are soft and add potatoes.  Toss and then cover, cook for 3-5 minutes until potatoes are soft.  Season again if necessary.  Transfer onions and potatoes to plate or bowl.  In the same skillet add a little bit of olive oil and add whisked eggs.  Let set over medium heat for a few minutes until bottom is cooked and the top is still not set.  Add onion and potatoes mixture on top the eggs.  Place in oven and cook for 8 minutes or until egg is cooked all the way through.  Take out and sprinkle with pepperjack cheese.  Slice into pie shaped pieces and serve warm.

I really like frittata's now.  Of course, I just used what we had in our house but you could use mushrooms, spinach, peppers, goat cheese, etc.  The possibilities for a good frittata are endless.
