Frittata Fanatic

Last weekend, I made 101 cupcakes. Remember that? Oooo yes, that was fun!

Well even after the cupcakes were all said and done, my fridge was still left with a bunch of eggs.

Last week, I put a call out on Twitter asking for some ideas on what I should make with my abundance of eggs; I ended up with a bunch of ideas, but a frittata was what stood out to me most. I ended up receiving an email from Lindsey who shared one of her favorite Spinach Frittata recipes with me that sounded beyond delicious. I had never made a frittata, but I was determined to try…so tonight was the night!

I was actually surprised at just how easy it was to make. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making some more of these in the near future, and Jay and I both really love how tonight’s leftovers will work perfect as tomorrow’s breakfast. Smile

I ended up combining some veggies that I know Jay and I both love, and loosely worked off the original recipe that Lindsey gave me. She doesn’t have a source for it, so I’m going to just go ahead and give ya’ll my version!

The frittata was cooked perfectly, and the flavors of all the veggies, plus the goat cheese, were incredible. Jay actually commented on how good the frittata was, “especially with the ricotta cheese on top.” Woops. Sorry, babe. Forgot to tell ya it was goat cheese.

BUT, had I told him, and he would have been all over that with a “ewww that stuff is nasty, I’m not eating that” ordeal. Honestly, I didn’t even think to “warn” him ahead of time (I should have known better) but it all worked out in the end. Smile

I served my frittata portion with a lightly toasted Arnold’s Honey Wheat Sandwich Thin, topped with some light butter and raspberry jam.

I am now, officially, a frittata fanatic!

Gotta go try to squeeze in a little more studying before my JETS game comes on…hopefully they don’t embarrass me too much this week. Yikes.

Questions for the Evening:

Are you a frittata fan? What meal do you prefer them at? Any favorite frittata recipes to share?

    Courtney I love to read your blog, and you literally make me laugh out loud at some of the things you say. Thank you for putting a smile on my face :)
    Today my laughter came from a type-o in your recipe. (I’m not one of those people who anxiously await a chance to tell the blogger where they messed up-I promise… this one was just too good not to point out :P)

    I just love where you said “sprinkle globs of boat cheese over the top..” I know you meant goat cheese, but boat cheese made me smile :)

      LOL – Lindsey, your comment totally made me laugh out loud. I’m so glad, not only to have you reading the blog, but that you can find some comic relief in it as well. What can I say, I do what I can ;) (And I’m going to fix the “boat cheese” right now!)

    Glad you guys liked it! I like your additions and changes I will try them next time. I love frittata’s for both brunch and supper.
    I think the goat cheese and basil make this frittata.

    Love this recipe! My skillet wasn’t “oven-proof” so I had to make it in a glass dish, but it came out just as well! Had to cook it about double though. What’s your favorite oven-proof skillet?
