Zucchini and Bacon Frittata (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 03/17/2011 - Frittatas are great because you can serve them right out of the skillet and they are perfect either warm, or at room-temperature. This Italian-inspired dish takes on a sultry personality with the added saltiness of the bacon.  I think the fontina gives this dish a little more sophistication, but cheese is a mere state of mind; use whatever is handy.

A tip for you spice-fiends: add some hot sauce to the egg mixture for a little extra bite.

Ingredients:
2 small russet potatoes, peeled and diced into ½-inch cubes
1 zucchini, grated
3 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
4 large eggs
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, mined
½ cup grated fontina cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven broiler.

Place potato cubes in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat for about 8 minutes, until tender. Drain potato cubes and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cilantro and salt. Set aside.

Heat olive oil in a medium-sized ovenproof skillet. Cook garlic and onions for about 2 minutes, until softened and translucent. Add grated zucchini and cook for another five minutes. Add cooked potatoes, stirring occasionally, until they have browned, about 5 additional minutes.

Slowly pour egg mixture over vegetables. Cook over medium heat, tilting pan to evenly distribute eggs. Top with grated cheese and bacon pieces. Transfer to broiler and cook for about 5 minutes, until eggs begin to puff up.

Remove and serve.

I'm a naturalist -- I don't use drugs, creams, etc. I do, however, scratch** the rash until I'm almost bleeding and then dump isopropyl alcohol in it -- that relieves the itch for quite some time. (Stings at first though.) I get the rashes on my legs. ANYWAY, I have found that a gluten-free diet is the only (or best) approach -- it's certainly the most natural, in my opinion. It took six months before I felt I was cleansed of gluten. I went nine months (or more) without a rash. Then, I mistakenly ate some soup with barley in it. Got the rash. I let it run its course while getting back to & staying on a gluten-free diet. My best advice is just to stay on a gluten-free diet. Be strong, brave. You can do it! ** I should clarify that when my rashes start itching, I can't help but scratch (excessively). I am not suggesting scratching yourself (with or without cause) as a means to an end. Don't scratch if you can.

Nicotinamide helps a great deal. Nicotinamide is a form of Vitamin B3, also called Niacin. Many new Celiacs have trouble absorbing sufficient vitamins and minerals because of intestinal damage. Malabsorption causes malnutrition. Deficiencies of the B Complex vitamins, especially niacin, and vitamins A and D often manifest as skin rashes and exacerbate DH. Recent research has found that treatment with nicotinamide and tetracycline effectively treats DH. Ask your doctor to check for vitamin deficiencies if you haven't already. Also dapsone use may cause iron, B12, and folate deficiencies which may lead to anemia. These should be monitored as well. Hope this helps.

I'm so excited! The Austin area has a new gluten-free restaurant - Guaco Taco. I'm going there tomorrow night for dinner. I love Mexican food and miss being able to eat it out.

I see the original post, and most replies, are old, but I thought I would weigh in as a vegetarian... for almost 25 years now. I wish you all good health!

Hmmm, interesting. That's a good policy!
