This is a nutty meringue cookie with a hint of chocolate flavor. This cookie can last for weeks. Because of that, during WWII, my mother-in-law sent a large batch to Jewish friends that were sadly taken to a concentration camp. These were a favorite of my husband’s father. My mother-in-law spread the batter in a pan, then cut them into squares. I prefer to bake them in individual traditional cookie rounds.
Years ago I had a very extensive and bountiful herb garden and this recipe started out as a simple herb quiche for a brunch I was hosting, but the “gluten free’s” and the “cutting down on carbers” won out so it became a frittata. Then someone suggested a salad might be nice to add to the menu, and someone else suggested making a breakfast pizza so I just combined all three into this dish. Frittatas however traditionally have cheese in them or on them as do pizzas. I had no cheese! So I used Mayonnaise and a star was born! Enjoy!
