Attila, King of the Huns Frittata

Serves 3

5 or 6 eggs
1 medium sweet onion
1 small tomato, thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves, peeled
1 Tbs olive oil or bacon fat
t tsp Pride of Szeged Steak Rub Seasoning*
3 Tbs St. Andre cheese

1- Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F.
2- Slice onion into four round piece, each about 1/2" thick. Keep them together in the round.
3- Heat oil in an ovenproof 9-inch heavy nonstick skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Carefully place each slice of onion in pan and sprinkle the top of each with some of the Rub Seasoning. Toss in the garlic cloves. Cook the onion slices and the cloves until nicely browned. Remove the garlic if it's getting too browned, and set aside.
4- Carefully flip each onion round over and season the newly-exposed side with some more Rub. Add a bit more oil if necessary. When the second side of the onions are all nicely browned toss the cooked cloves back into the pan.
5- Beat eggs until just mixed. Pour beaten eggs evenly over the onions and garlic and crumble cheese over eggs. Place the sliced tomato on top of all.
6- Transfer skillet to oven and bake frittata, uncovered, until set and just cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Cut into pie-shaped pieces and serve immediately with a side salad and possibly some hash brown potatoes.

Left over slices can be re-heated and served in a sandwich in soft naan bread with a bit of mayo.

*"Ingredients: Salt, onion, celery seed, and spices."
