Crabmeat Frittata

I have posted my mother's Beef Frittata in my other blog a few months ago.  Today, I'm sharing my Crabmeat Frittata.  It has basically the same ingredients as my mom's Beef Frittata except that I used  crabmeat as its star ingredient.  I also added button mushroom...because I love mushrooms.  It's an easy, no fuss, open-faced omelet.

Saute drained crabmeat in garlic and onions.  

Add diced potatoes, carrots, slices of button mushrooms, red bell pepper, salt and pepper to taste.

I added a pinch of cayenne pepper for a bit of spice, and lastly added raisins. Stir frequently until all ingredients are cooked.  Then remove skillet from burner.

Meanwhile, beat eggs in a bowl and add in the cooked crabmeat mix.  Blend well.

Line baking pan or non-stick skillet with aluminum foil, pour crabmeat with egg mixture into the pan and close edges of aluminum foil to seal in the heat and flavors.  Place under the broiler or on a burner and broil for about 5 minutes or until frittata is set and the top is golden.

Serve immediately with crusty bread.

Sarap! My Mom used to make this all the time when I was little, sometimes as stuffing in a crabshell. Happy Weekend!
