Frittata! Isn’t it a word that you would like to say 10 million times because it has such a nice ring to it. A frittata is an Italian dish made with beaten eggs. The word frittata comes from the Italian verb “friggere” which means “to fry”. Frittatas are a dish often made when one has leftovers that they want to use up. This is exactly how this easy oven baked vegetable frittata came about. I had some leftover broccoli that I had to use.
Made this oven baked vegetable frittata for brunch and served it with sliced avocado. I did not need bread as it was quite filling. Super simple and smells delicious! This easy recipe can be adapted to use with whatever vegetables you have on hand. Different fillings include potatoes, carrots, spinach, kale, fresh herbs and more. For the meat lovers you can add bacon, ham, leftover ground beef, even salmon. I have heard of people adding pasta to their frittatas which I have yet to try.
If you are trying to get your children to eat vegetables frittatas are a great way to do it. Better yet, it is a affordable meal for the family.
