This pear frittata has a hint of sweetness from the pears and a punch of tang, if you opt to serve yours with a side of sour cream. Before you jump to the conclusion that eggs and pears do not mix, we invite you to try this unique frittata. It will not disappoint!
Over the last 10 years, we have used every type of Bosc and Bartlett possible. From fresh pears off our trees, to canned pears during the off-season. We have used pears from the grocery store produce area to the tin can variety. And you know what? The frittata tasted great no matter where the pears came from!
What we have learned is, the fresh pears need to be ripe. And by ripe, I mean slightly squishy. Otherwise, heat up some butter in a pan and cook the pear slices until fork tender. This is because the frittata does not cook long enough for extra hard pears to get soft.
Okay, now that we are all craving pears, let’s dive into this oh-so-simple recipe. I’m fairly sure you will have all the ingredients in your kitchen right now, for the pear frittata.
Pear Frittata, Easy Recipe
By Adventures In RV Life, Melissa McElfresh
8 – 15 minutes
- 1 lb ripe pears cut into 1” pieces
- 6 large eggs
- ⅓ cup milk
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ¼ tsp salt
- Cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 400*F
- Whisk eggs, milk, and vanilla in a bowl (see tips)
- Add flour and salt to a large blow
- Slowly pour the milk mixture into the flour bowl, whisking gently until combined
- Grease the pie dish or frying pan with cooking spray
- Pour the batter into the pie dish or pan
- Add the pears
- Cook until the center is set (see tips)
- If using canned pears, cut into large chunks. This will help the pear stay intact through the cooking process.
- If using fresh pears, look for ones that are soft. Otherwise, cook the pear slices in a buttered pan until fork tender
- Fresh pears come in a wide variety. We find Bartlett’s to be the best, since they are sweet.
- The Bosc pears tend to have a spice-sweet flavor, making them a good choice as well.
- Top with a sprinkle of brown sugar
- Sour cream is a tasty topping as well.
- Measure milk in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup, then add vanilla and eggs, beat until mixed. This action will save you from needing a second bowl. And give you control when pouring into the dry mixture.
- The center will no longer have a glossy finish and will not be jiggly, once it is ‘set’ – cooked through
- Cooking time will vary based on the material of the cooking vessel and what size it is. The time can range from 8-minutes to 15-minutes in a traditional oven, using a glass pie dish.
- Using our RV propane stove, with a glass 9.5” pie plate, takes our Pear Frittata 25 to 30 minutes to cook at 450*F.
