Small Frittata Sandwich

This is a simple sandwich with only 4 ingredients. It is a change from my usual fare that I have for lunch.

2 large eggs
1 heaping teaspoon of salsa arrabbiata (recipe is included on this blog)
2 or 3 slices of processed cheese or provolone
2 slice of good rye bread

Add the salsa to the middle of a small bowl and then add the eggs to the same bowl. Beat the eggs and salsa together.

Preheat a small skillet on the cooktop. I use a 6" cast iron skillet. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook at low heat until bottom of mixture sets. Then transfer the skillet under the oven broiler.

Watch to see when the mixture has been completely set. It takes only a few minutes. Remove the skillet from the oven. Set the skillet down on a pot holder or trivet.

Slice the frittata in half and place the halves on a slice of rye bread. Position the 1st half so that the 2nd half of the frittata does not completely overlap the 1st half. Lay the cheese slices on next. Then cover the cheese with the other slice of bread.

Now you can eat the sandwich.

Buon appetito!
