Touted as Maryland's favorite crustacean, the crab's delicate, tangy meat mixes easily into this dish. Pair with a side of fresh fruit, biscuits or simple hash browns.

Ingredients

12 large eggs
2 cups sour cream
6 oz. cooked, flaked crab meat
8 oz. smoked gouda cheese, shredded
3 oz. Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese, shredded
6 large green onions, sliced
1⁄2 cup diced red bell pepper
2 tbsp. seafood seasoning
2 tbsp. butter
Sour cream, sliced green onions, and red pepper strips (optional)

Steps

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In bowl, whisk eggs and sour cream. Stir in crab, cheeses, onions, pepper, and seafood seasoning.

2. Divide butter between two 10-in. ovenproof skillets; melt over med. heat. When butter begins to brown, divide egg mixture evenly between pans. Transfer skillets to oven.

3. Bake 32-35 min. or until set, firm, and thoroughly cooked. Let cool slightly before serving.

4. Cut each frittata into six wedges. Garnish with sour cream, green onions, red pepper strips, and a sprinkle of seafood seasoning, if desired. Serve immediately.

We started inviting chefs and FSDs from other districts to come prepare lunch. Through featuring different chefs and chef-inspired meals, I’ve found the students have been looking forward to coming into the cafeteria.

tapas

I’ve created a high school “focus group” to see what future college students will want in terms of foodservice. This year, I called up two now-seniors from the last group to get 10 of their friends together. I also include a sophomore or two so that I always have a contact for next year. Tapas, grain bowls and late-night breakfast all originated from this group.

making meals

This summer, we teamed up with a church to deliver meals to three housing projects. We brought the meals to the church, and then the church recruited volunteers to deliver the meals to the children. We’ve been very impressed with this new model, and it shows great promise in getting meals to children who otherwise would not be able to leave their housing project.

Having never personally experienced a hurricane, I can only imagine the horrors faced by the millions of people whose lives were affected by Harvey and Irma in late August and early September. It’s a group that comprises uncounted noncommercial operations, including Houston Independent School District, which serves 215,000 students.

But from that tragedy has come one of the most impressive feats of foodservice I’ve seen since coming on board at this magazine, partially spearheaded by Nutrition Officer Betti Wiggins , who only just joined the district. For the entire school year,...
