  1. Combining fresh cherry tomatoes, sweet corn and aromatic basil, this frittata showcases summer ingredients at their peak of flavor.
  2. Ingredients:
  3. 10 eggs
  4. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  5. 6 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  6. 3 Tbs. finely chopped fresh basil
  7. 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
  8. 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  9. 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  10. Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  11. 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  12. Kernels cut from 1 ear of corn (about 1 cup)
  13. 1/2 pint small cherry tomatoes
  14. Directions:
  15. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, 4 oz. of the goat cheese, 2 Tbs. of the basil, the lemon zest, the 1 1/4 tsp. salt, the red pepper flakes and black pepper. Set aside.

  16. In the deep half of a frittata pan over medium heat, melt 1 Tbs. of the butter. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the egg mixture and cook, gently scraping the sides and bottom of the pan with a rubber spatula to allow the uncooked eggs to flow underneath, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and cook until the frittata is partially set, about 5 minutes. Remove the shallow pan and arrange the cherry tomatoes and the remaining 2 oz. goat cheese on top of the frittata. Cover with the shallow pan and cook until the eggs are almost completely set, 7 to 9 minutes more.

  17. Remove the shallow pan, set it over medium heat and melt the remaining 1 Tbs. butter. Place the shallow pan upside down on top of the deep pan and flip the frittata into the shallow pan. Cook, covered, until the eggs are completely set, about 3 minutes. Flip the frittata back into the deep pan, remove the shallow pan and gently shake the deep pan to loosen the frittata.

  18. Slide the frittata onto a cutting board. Top with the remaining 1 Tbs. basil and a sprinkle of salt. Cut into 8 wedges and serve. Serves 8.
