a month at the women's homeless shelter in Orlando, funded and staffed by her church volunteers. The homeless shelter clients' favorite family meal is quiche and hot soup. However, buying the pie shells can be quite expensive, so I suggested an Italian or Spanish potato frittata. That would require no crust, less eggs and more veggies.
They cook for 200, serving at least 150 women and children and they cook in 2" high steam pans.
To our experts in this kind of thing: Can a frittata be made in this kind of pan? I've only made it in 9" cast iron skillets.
Also, any good recipes would be greatly appreciated.
