Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I have brunch on the brain.
Frittatas are one of my favorite go-to brunch recipes because you do everything ahead of time and serve it up hot, cold, or room temperature (room temperature is actually my favorite).
You can make frittatas 101 different ways, so I encourage you to use this recipe as a base and then sub in whatever veggies look the most delicious and your favorite kind of cheese.
But for those of you who just want to go, ‘tried and true’, make this recipe exactly as it is written and I promise you will have a light, flavorful, frittata that is sure to please everyone at the table.
I plan to round out my brunch table with a simple arugula salad, fruit salad, and my whole wheat chocolate chip scones (recipe coming Friday).
What do you plan to have on your table? You know I want to know 🙂
