Broccoli and Cheese Frittata

Broccoli cheese frittata

Frittatas are versatile and provide a quick, easy, and nutritious meal for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. You can serve a frittata any time of the day. This broccoli and cheese frittata can be modified to include whatever veggies and cheese that you may have in your refrigerator.

Chop the broccoli or broccolini into chunks. This recipe calls for sautéing the broccoli or broccolini in a cast iron skillet in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. You can also oven roast the broccoli to enrich the flavor. Add some chopped green onions and garlic to the skillet for more interest.

Season with red pepper flakes and smoked paprika for a little zing.

I chose to use parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of feta to top the broccoli frittata. You can use cheddar or mozzarella or another one of your favorite cheeses to pair with the eggs and vegetables. Bake the frittata in the skillet and serve directly form the pan. The cheeses create a creamy texture and a crusty brown layer on top.

As I said, frittatas are versatile and flexible so get creative and use what you have available and appeals to you.
