This delectable cross between an omelet and a bread pudding is one of the joys of the summer tomato season. It is called fritada in Sefarad Yemekleri, but in other cookbooks it is known as quajado de tomate. Quajado can mean “congealed, ” or it may be related to queijado, the Portuguese word for “cheesecake.” The Arab word for the earthenware cooking vessel called a cazuela by the Spanish was qas’ah, so the term is very ancient indeed.
