Mediterranean Frittata: Classic Mediterranean flavors like feta, kalamata olives, tomatoes, spinach, and oregano, are baked into an egg custard for a healthy, flavorful dish that is perfect for a family breakfast, brunch, or light dinner. #SundaySupper #glutenfree #vegetarian
You all know how much I am passionate about family meals. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than sitting down with the ones I love and showing them a bit of my love through food. And boy do I believe sitting down on a regular basis for a meal sans TV, phones, or any electronics and having good old-fashioned conversations, is key to keeping a family close.
The reality is that many families are just over-scheduled and no longer eat any meal together. Regardless of your schedule, why not set aside one meal a week and devote it to your family? That is manageable. Join me, and thousands of others, that are claiming #SundaySupper as time to enjoy a family meal together.
And to kick off my FIRST #SundaySupper post, I am sharing one of my favorite egg recipes–because this week’s Sunday Supper theme is Eggtastic Recipes. And this Mediterranean Frittata is loved by all. Paired with homemade paleo breakfast sausage from Texanerin Baking , it is the perfect meal for a light dinner, brunch, or Sunday morning breakfast.
I have made this frittata for years, because I love the salty olives and sharp feta paired with eggs. But I never had a “recipe.” Just a bit of this and that and done. After serving it the teachers at my childrens’ school, I have been asked several times for this recipe. So it was high time I created one to share. Good news for you is that it is simple and adaptable, making family mealtime more manageable.
