Summer Meal Idea

Fritatas are a beautiful, nutritious, and frugal way to serve up a protein packed meal, incorporating the bounty of the season. This fritata, is based on my friend Carrie's recipe, a recipe that has made her a local celeb. She delivers this meal to postpartum moms and their families so that they have one meal off and can care for the newborns. I haven't yet sought permission to share her recipe, but to give you an idea, I modified her recipe to include spinach, tomatoes, onion, and cheddar. Fritatas are very forgiving so feel free to include whatever you have on hand, asparagus, sausage, broccoli, squash, fresh/dried herbs, parmesan cheese, diced potatoes etc. Serve this up for a weekend brunch, midweek lunch or dinner, accompanied by roasted rosemary potatoes and/or thick slices of whole grain bread. It is a great meal idea for the summertime.
