Make-Ahead Tip

The longer the pico has to sit, the more flavor it will have. Make it the night before serving if you can.

Some foods, including the rolls and frittata, taste best when they’ve cooled a bit. Flavors can get lost when foods are eaten too hot.


Preheat oven to 375°.

For the pico, combine tomatoes, oil, vinegar, and garlic; season with salt and pepper.

For the frittata, purée eggs, cream, and salt in a blender.

Sauté jalapeños and scallion whites and light greens in oil in a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until beginning to soften, 35 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium, pour in egg mixture, and add scallion greens; cook until large curds begin to form, about 5 minutes.

Transfer skillet to oven and bake until center of frittata is set, about 12 minutes. Loosen edges of frittata from sides of skillet with a silicone spatula, turn out onto a plate, then invert onto a serving plate. Let frittata cool 5 minutes before serving with pico.
