How Do I Make a New Zealand-Style Roasted Vegetable Frittata?

Good Questions

Q: While traveling through New Zealand, I discovered roasted vegetable frittatas, which are quite different from the North American version of frittatas: about 2-3" thick, simultaneously eggy and creamy rather than spongy, and loaded with roasted veggies.

They are almost like a thick slice of egg-and-veg cake and I haven't been able to find a good recipe for them. Can you share one?

Editor: Jenn, we have a hunch that it might not be the recipe that made roasted vegetable frittatas so different in New Zealand, but the quality and type of dairy used. We've heard that the dairy products in Australia and New Zealand are much richer (and more delicious!) than those found in the United States.

If none of our readers familiar with New Zealand cuisine are able to help out, you might also try this recipe from an Australia-based blog that we featured, which layers roasted vegetables with eggy crepes.
