Blood Donor Clinic - Stratford
9 a.m. to 12 p.m. / Rotary Complex
Your blood type determines who you can donate to, or receive blood from. People with type O negative (O-) are considered universal donors, as they can donate red blood cells to all other blood type recipients. That’s why it’s always in high demand — it’s used in emergency situations when there is no time to test a patient’s blood type. Source: Canadian Blood Services

What's For Dinner Wednesday
What's For Dinner? Margherita Frittata!

If you love the flavors of Margherita Pizza or Caprese Salad (tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella cheese), then give this simple frittata a try! Serve it with a colorful green salad.


  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk or cream
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper (about ½ tsp each)
  • 2 tsp olive oil or butter
  • 3.5 oz/100 g soft, fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 plum tomato, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp basil pesto (see variation below for non-pesto version)
  • Chopped fresh basil for garnish (pictured)


You will need a 10-inch, oven-proof, non-stick skillet with a lid for this recipe.

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper until well blended and a bit frothy. Heat olive oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until edges look like they're beginning to set. Using a rubber spatula, raise the edges of the frittata so that any uncooked egg runs underneath. Cover and cook 2 to 3 more minutes, until top is still a bit wet but almost cooked through. Meanwhile, preheat oven broiler but leave rack in center position.
  2. Layer slices of mozzarella and tomatoes over eggs in skillet. Dot with small dollops of pesto. Transfer skillet to oven and broil frittata for 1 to 2 minutes, until cheese is melted and eggs are completely cooked and slightly browned around edges. Be careful not to burn it!
  3. Remove frittata from oven and sprinkle with fresh basil (optional). Let cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving. (This frittata tastes better and is easier to slice when it's warm and not hot.)

Makes 4 servings


To lower the fat content or if you're just not a fan of pesto, simply omit it from the recipe. Then add 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the beaten egg mixture before cooking, and sprinkle lots of chopped, fresh basil over the finished frittata before serving.
