Dean Sheremet’s Frittata

Remember that frittata I talked about yesterday?

The one Dean made?

I’m seriously still dreaming about it so I asked him to share the recipe.

The only problem? He made it up on the fly. Cause that’s what chefs do. Just throw together the random ingredients of their fridge and it ends up being the most delicious thing you’ve ever had. Cut to me preparing and perfecting the same thing ten times over in as many years and it can’t even come close. Oh, well. I guess that’s why you befriend chefs.

If you don’t have a Dean in your life, his recipe for similar frittata is below.



Bacon & Potato Frittata

1 ½ cups of cooked potato, diced

2 ½ cups of fresh spinach

1 cup baby Portobello mushrooms, quartered

2 scallions, sliced thin

3 slices of bacon, sautéed until crispy

6 ounces goat cheese, broken into large chunks

8 eggs

1 cup of cream


Olive oil


Fresh black pepper

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, adjust your rack to the middle position
  • Place the spinach in a microwave proof bowl and microwave for 45 seconds to blanch
  • Carefully remove and use a towel to squeeze out the extra moisture. Chop finely
  • Whisk together the eggs and cream, set aside
  • Heat a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once the oil starts to shimmer tip the mushrooms in and sauté until golden brown, about 4 minutes, season with salt and pepper
  • Butter a 13×9 pan and add a layer of the chopped spinach followed by the scallion, mushrooms, bacon, and potato and scatter the goat cheese
  • Season well with salt and pepper
  • Season your egg mixture with salt and pepper and pour into the dish
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the middle is just set and the outer edges are puffy and golden.

    can not wait to try this!
    will be on the lookout for the cookbook,
    tv show and anything else. maybe a new restaurant?

    The article was like sitting with good friends, CLASSY good friends who are looking objectively on the other side of the tunnel.

    Ofcourse people during strife are upset, but once the murk is mopped and the stable cleaned, if you can come out a better person (or more grown up, cause Dean, no one should fault you guys, you were babies) then you are on your path, and if you hadn’t have gone through what you went through then, you wouldn’t have what you have now.

    I wish everyone who is given a chance to do better, be better will, but some stay stalled, vacuous, kinda empty sad little people who forget the joy of creating, working and only judge themselves by the amount of “fame” they have. This is not so with you, Dean.

    Nat, not only will I subscribe to your work, but share on my page of over 2k, hand picked folk who, yes some are in the biz, but all pretty awesome people who cherish life.

    Have a great thaw, NYC!!
