Easy Like Sunday Frittata

Sunday mornings deserve a special breakfast.

Something warm, homey and fulfilling to set you about the remainder of your weekend. And for me, nothing says Sunday breakfast like a frittata. I’m not sure this is an actual, ‘by the book’ frittata as it was created about a half decade ago as a way to salvage my veggie scrambled eggs. That said, I’ve come to refine my recipe and preparation, and it leaves me with a smile on my face for the rest of the day. The best part of a frittata is that it’s good leftover – and any temperature – room temp, or even out of the fridge. Choose the veggies you like – I chose sun-dried tomatoes as my base vegetable on this one – set aside the half hour you need and dig in.

Your Sunday deserves it.
