Egg lovers ... green up your Frittata !!!

I love eggs, I love green Vegetables so I love enjoying a Frittata for my Brunch !!!

To me Frittata is a wonderful healthy meal (as long as you love eggs, of course ;-))

It is an egg dish, almost like an omelette, but easier because it cooks in the oven.
Plus you can use almost all the veggies, cheeses, or meats that you like.

It is perfect for a light meal, served with salad on the side.

If you want a light Frittata, you can use only veggies, like me today (Zucchinis, sweet Peas, Spinaches, and  Pesto), but if you prefer, you can add grilled bacon, ham, sausage .... E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G !!!!

After grilling the Veggies, you cover with the Eggs batter, and hop ... directly in the oven at 450 F.

20mn later ... you can enjoy a puffy and light Frittata ... trop bon ! (so yummy !)

A bientot & bon Appetit
