"Froutalia" Greek Omelette From Andros Island

Maria *


"Froutalia is a traditional dish from the Cyclades islands (Aegean Sea). It can be made with a variety of ingredients depending on the season. Like zucchini, artichokes, or broad beans. But always includes a local sausage and potatoes. Cooked either stovetop or baked.
Froutalia can quickly be put together as a "maze" appetizer or summer lunch for unexpected guests. Based on free-range eggs, local fennel flavored pork sausage, and "Volaki" a mature piquant cheese.
I believe the following recipe will help you recreate the local dish at home. Delicious served hot or cold tastes great too.

How to Make "Froutalia" Greek Omelette From Andros Island


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place a frying pan or skillet over medium heat. Cut the sausage into1/4 inch pieces and saute in the frying pan, for 1 -2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  3. If the pan is dry add 1 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp butter. Add the potatoes, sliced as thinly as possible round. Season with salt & pepper and saute for 1 -2 minutes until golden.
  4. TIP: At this point, you can either continue cooking in the ovenproof skillet and bake in the preheated oven till eggs are set, for about 10 minutes or in a baking dish like I did.
  5. Lightly grease a 10-inch baking dish and spread a layer of the sauteed potatoes overlapping. Add a layer of the sausage slices. Sprinkle some cheese between layers.
    If you have remaining pieces of potatoes & sausage you can make one more layer.
  6. In a bowl beat eggs, milk, pepper, freshly chopped mint, and remaining cheese and mix. Pour the mixture over the potatoes & sausages and bake for about 20 minutes.
  7. Remove, cut in wedges and serve with fresh crusty bread and Greek tomato salad
    Kali Orexi: ENJOY!!!
