Baked Veggie Frittata

Baked Veggie Frittata

If you need a quick brunch idea this Spring, a frittata is the way to go.  Eggs are always nice in the morning, and a frittata elevates the humble egg nicely.  It is also easy to customize this dish based on what's in season or what you think your guests would most enjoy.

Typically a frittata is done entirely on the stove-top where the eggs and veggies cook on one side before the whole thing is flipped to cook on the second side.  Some people may have trouble pulling off the whole flipping thing.  But this baked frittata eliminates all that making this one of the easiest brunch dishes you can pull off.

It's also convenient to serve because it tastes amazing at room temperature so there's no problem making it a few hours in advance.  And if you really want to make it look more upscale, don't hesitate to chop over some fresh herbs and drape on slices of prosciutto before serving.  It's to die for.

This is sure to be a hit with your friends and family.
