Old Man of the Woods Frittata

Old Man of the Woods Frittata

This old man of the woods frittata is the perfect wild mushroom dish for a single hungry forager after a successful mushroom hunt!

Strobilomyces strobilaceus

The old man of the woods mushroom (Strobilomyces strobilaceus) doesn’t get much respect as a choice edible, but if you pick them young, and cook them up with eggs, I think they’re just fantastic!

  • Total Time25 min
  • Yield1 serving

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons (10g) butter
  • 4 old man of the woods mushrooms, sliced, stems discarded
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 handful chopped kale, spinach, or wild greens
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) heavy cream, sour cream, or yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons grated pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper

Preparation

1

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, gas mark 4).

2

Melt butter in a small frying pan over medium heat. 

Add the mushrooms and onions and cook for 2 minutes. 

Add the garlic and kale (or greens) and cook for 2 more minutes. 

3

Whip the eggs with the milk, cream (or yogurt), a pinch of black pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the cheese. 

Pour the mixture into the frying pan. 

Gently fold everything together, then let set, cooking undisturbed for 4 minutes.

4

Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese and a bit of salt over the top of the frittata. 

Transfer to the oven for 5 minutes. 

If you’d like a golden top, you can turn on the broiler for a minute or two as well. 

Serve on its own, or with a piece of toast. Enjoy!
