Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata

This Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata recipe is a crustless quiche, packed full with all your favorite veggies. A versatile and delicious brunch idea!
“Real men don’t eat quiche.” Does anyone remember that silly slogan from years ago? Well, thank goodness times have changed! Real men DO eat quiche quite happily, and even the lowly egg has been elevated to “superfood” status. We think that’s a pretty awesome idea. The egg is an extraordinary little oval…packed with all sorts of lovely things like protein, amino acids and choline (which helps your cells transport nutrients.) It’s a no-carb, no-sugar and no-gluten food, and it’s one of the cheapest items at the grocery store! The egg is eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner now. Want to ramp up a dish to something more elegant? Fry an egg and place it delicately on top of a piece of beef or a rice and veggie bowl or a simple green salad. Who would’ve thought the egg, of all things, could be so popular, attractive and…can we say, fancy?!

Here’s another idea for “gentrifying” the EGG. The frittata is an Italian word meaning “fried,” and is basically an open-faced omelette, often cooked in a skillet on the stove. Our version, Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata, is basically a crustless quiche baked in the oven. Obviously, it’s packed with tart feta and veggies of any variety. And it doesn’t have to end there! If you’d like, add some bacon, sausage, or ham! Be creative here. Just pick your favorites, stir them in, shove the whole thing in the oven, and you’ll have a delectable breakfast, lunch or dinner 40 minutes later. Maybe while it’s cooking, you can have a contest to see who can say the name ten times fast…”Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata…Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata…Feta and Favorite Veggie Frittata!”
