Brunch plans this weekend? Now you do!
Brunch plans this weekend!? I thought y’all would love this easy menu idea as much as I did! I found the easiest frittata recipe on epicurious.com and loved the 6 fun ways to mix it up! It’s like a capsule recipe! 😜 This is such a fun main dish to serve with some fresh berries and an easy little simple salad w/ fresh mixed baby greens tossed in a little olive oil, champagne vinegar, finished with a little salt + pepper!
Whether your feeding just a few or a crowd, this little brunch menu will be a hit!
Here's your basic frittata recipe:
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a a 10" oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add ½ cup diced onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk 8 large eggs in a medium bowl with ½ cup of milk, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. To customize, choose one of the additions below.
Pour the egg mixture and any additions into your skillet, stir, and cook just until edges start to pull away from the pan. This will take 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and bake until set, 16 to 18 minutes. Then enjoy!
