Spring Vegetable Frittata

Happy Memorial Day to everyone in the USA. Take time today to remember those who gave their lives to keep us free.

A frittata is an Italian egg dish. Unlike the French quiche, a frittata does not have a crust. Today’s recipe adds fresh spring vegetables to the egg and milk. You can adapt this frittata recipe to add many types of vegetables. If you roast root vegetables in the winter, use left overs in a frittata. Summer is a great time for all types of fresh garden vegetables. This dish is perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch, and even a light supper.

  1. WE make frittatas often for breakfast and slice them in 4 to eat two mornings ina row. This combination looks great. I should have fresh chives growing in my garden very soon.

  2. Happy Memorial Day to you.
    We love frittata but don’t have it often enough, I always find them great for using things that need using up out of the fridge.

  3. mmmm my mouth is watering. I love frittata and how you can add just about anything to it. I think I know what I’ll be having for lunch today.

    1. I didn’t know you weren’t getting my post notifications. It really makes me sad. I think that email providers spam formulas are putting them in spam.

  4. This looks really good. Perfect for me, as I love eggs and am always looking for new ways to eat them! I’m featuring this at Thursday Favorite Things today. 🙂

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
