Sun-dried Tomato & Mushroom Frittata
Dearest Eggcelent Eaters,
Do you yearn for breakfasts that are both delicious and nutritionally-dense, but sometimes feel like you’re cracking under the pressure? Are you scrambling for fresh ideas to spice up your household’s breakfast routine? Do you ever find yourself lost in complication, wishing more breakfast recipes were over(ly)-easy? …Are you feeling fried even thinking about it? Well, my dear chef, if so–I’m here to say that things are looking up for you–sunny-side up, that is.
I apologize for the overly-dramatic intro there–but I feel like I had to get the majority of egg puns out of my system in one pass. I truly believe that no food joke should ever go unspoken, and I *clearly* lose myself in amusement of the challenge–so no, I don’t apologize at all. Rather, I say, “Yeah peeps, you welcome,” and “okay, I promise to actually talk about the recipe now.”
Frittatas are one of my all time favorite weekend breakfast meals. I say “weekend breakfast” because, although it is a simple recipe, the slight baking time required pushes it beyond the time I allot myself for breakfast creations on weekdays. However, leftovers do keep very nicely in the fridge for easy grab-n-go meals or snacks for a later time, if you so choose.
If you’re wondering what exactly a frittata is, imagine an egg-based pizza made entirely in a skillet. In this pizza analogy, eggs serve as the bulk of the dish (aka “the crust”), while cheese and veggies serve as the toppings. Just like a pizza, it’s cut into slices before serving. Most usually (and politely), it’s eaten with a fork–but if you’re more of a “hand to the face” pizza-style kind of person, then go ‘head with yo’ bad self. Either way, it’ll be glorious.
This recipe is simple, customizable, and requires minimal ingredients. To be honest, the ingredient combination below is delicious (of course), but I often use frittata meals to clean out any veggies in the fridge on the brink of going bad. Plus, it’s always a crowd pleaser! Chewly eggquisite, if you ask me.
P.S. Offering to make a fresh frittata for anyone who comments using 3 or more original egg puns….let the games begin! Yes, I deliver.
