"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Baked Eggplant Omelette
Baked Eggplant Omelette
(Frittata al Melanzane)

1 large eggplant (1 and 1/2 lbs)
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 large eggs
1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese (1 and 1/2 oz)
4 teaspoons tomato paste
1/4 cup water
Peel eggplant and cut lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick slices.

Sprinkle sea salt over slices and arrange in 2 even stacks in a shallow dish.

Put a flat dish on top of eggplant and weight with 1-lb can for 2 hours.

Rinse salt from eggplant under running water and pat slices dry between double layers of paper towel.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Heat olive oil in an ovenproof 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat.

Saute eggplant in batches of 3 or 4 slices until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

Drain as sauteed on brown paper or paper towels.

Pour off olive oil from skillet and wipe, leaving a light coating.

Cover bottom of skillet with half of eggplant, overlapping slightly, and make another layer with remaining eggplant.

Whisk together eggs and cheese in a bowl and stir together tomato paste and water in another bowl.

Heat skillet with eggplant over moderate heat until hot and pour in egg mixture, lifting edges of eggplant so eggs coat bottom of skillet.

Cook omelette, uncovered, over low heat, until eggs begin to set around edge, 5 to 7 minutes.

Slowly pour tomato mixture in a spiral pattern over surface of omelette, then bake in upper third of oven until eggs are set and pale golden, about 20 minutes.

Loosen side and bottom of omelette and slide onto a plate.

Serve at room temperature with a few grindings of black pepper. Serves 6.
