  • 6 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoons fresh mint - finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup milk

  3. In a separate bowl beat the 10 eggs with the milk. Add the eggs to the mixture and mix very well. Add 4 Tbs of EV olive oil and continue mixing.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 400F.

  6. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes on the stove and then transfer the pan to the top level of your oven.
  7. Let it cook for 50 minutes (or once the top colors to your liking)  and you will have a perfect and crispy Frittata.
