We have been lucky to know a few people with hens over the years, one being a friend who once came over with an incredible box. This box full of eggs. Apparently his hens were happy hens.

More recently, we got these from a neighbor…they have been supplying us with a good amount of fresh eggs for the last few years and I am ever so grateful!

How gorgeous are those eggs??

It’s a good thing my family eats a lot of eggs! Typically we have them for breakfast scrambled or fried in a sandwich, but on nights when my husband is traveling and the kids are happy with mac ‘n cheese, I like to make myself a frittata…that is if I haven’t already had one for lunch that day.

I originally posted this recipe in March of 2012 and decided to share it with you again since it’s one I like to make often. I pretty much always have peppers, onions and kalamata olives on hand so it’s an easy one to throw together. The photos look so different from each other, I was a little more heavy handed with the veggies the first time around which goes to show you can’t really mess up a frittata – add as much or as little veggie and cheese as you’d like. That’s what’s so great about frittatas…it’s a great (low carb) way to get in a lot of veggies with your protein!

If you haven’t made a frittata for yourself yet, it’s really quite easy. You start off in a small nonstick pan (make sure it’s oven safe though) with sautéing whatever veggies you are using. You then add your eggs (I like to add a splash or two of milk to my eggs before whisking) and let it cook for a few minutes until the bottom “sets”. Then top it with cheese and pop it under the broiler for about 5 minutes. The top of the frittata will bake up and the cheese will melt into the eggs. So good!
