The Farmer Frittata

All the veggies come together to make this egg frittata breakfast hearty and delicious! Paired with a little salad or some fresh fruit, this is a perfect lunch or dinner. Gluten-free, vegetarian, and of course, Mediterranean Diet approved.

What is a Frittata?

If you haven't yet experienced this delicious dish, we're happy to introduce you! This one-pan meal resembles a quiche without a crust. However, a frittata generally uses more eggs and less dairy so the texture is less like a creamy pie and more like scrambled eggs. 
Because of it's hearty nature, frittatas hold up well to being eaten at lunch or dinner. They are super easy to make and reheat very well, so they are a favorite of meal preppers too. Simply pop this in the oven on Sunday and eat it, cold or reheated, for lunched during the week.   
Perfect for a breakfast on-the-go, brunch with friends, or a breakfast-for-dinner main meal, this egg dish is stuffed with veggies for extra flavor and antioxidants. We encourage you to play around with what flavor combinations you love. Scroll down for some yummy options! 

Eggs and Egg Whites

In this recipe, we’ve reduced the number of egg yolks in the dish by about half. Have you tried this with other egg dishes? You probably won’t notice a difference but you will save yourself some calories and cholesterol!
Just remember that egg whites are about half as much volume as the whole egg, so your total whole eggs would be 6 and your total egg whites would be 12. Which do you prefer– all whole eggs or split in half? It’s delicious either way!

So Easy to Make 

This dish is as easy as cracking the eggs in a bowl and giving the veggies a quick couple of minutes sauteeing in a pan.
Add everything to a 12-ince pan and pop into a preheated oven.
The eggs should cook through in about 10-15 minutes. You will know they are done if they looked cooked through, puffed up a bit, and just a tiny bit jiggly in the middle. Some people love to stick a knife in the center to make sure it comes out clean. If you don't mind the little hole, this works too! 
This kind of egg frittata is great hot (right out of the oven) or cold!

This is a large frittata which will feed you for a while, so we recommend you use a large enough pan. You will need one that can go from the stovetop to the oven. We highly recommend using a pan similar to this pan

Notes on This Egg Frittata:

This can be made using 12 eggs. To reduce the volume of yolks without changing the taste very much, we recommend making it with 12 eggs whites and 6 whole eggs. (You need double the whites because one egg white is half the volume of one egg).
Feel free to use any veggies that you have in your house! We love the pepper, green, mushroom combination.
