Delicious, Versatile Veggie Frittata Recipe

Each year, our family makes this delicious frittata for Easter brunch. A frittata is a casserole-like egg dish, which is particularly appropriate on Easter Sunday. We've also enjoyed this recipe on Mother's Day and other special celebrations. The egg is a symbol of fertility and re-birth. In springtime, when the world awakens after a long winter, eggs are a sign of new life emerging.

This recipe can be made with, or without sausage, for those that may wish to have a vegetarian option. In fact, when we've hosted larger gatherings, we make 2 versions: one with, and one without meat. There are never any leftovers!

I like to serve the frittatas brunch-style, out on the kitchen counters. I set the dining room table for the adults, and the kitchen table for the kids. Then I have everyone go through the kitchen with their plates to serve themselves some frittata, fruit salad, and sweet rolls (I like to get hot cross buns). Orange juice and coffee compliment the brunch well.

This veggie frittata is great any weekend when you're having guests over, or if you have a large family! You may want to serve it the morning after a wedding, a graduation, or any other special occasion!

Looking for a sweet recipe to compliment this savory one? How about Caramel Apple French Toast?

Veggie Frittata for Dinner or Special Occasions

You don't have to have a special occasion to make frittata. And, just because it is an egg dish, you do not have to limit this recipe as breakfast fare. Serve it up any time, morning or night!

Family gatherings are made all the more special when anchored by traditional food and fare. My kids know I am preparing the veggie frittata recipe when they see me grating the zucchini and chopping the onions. This year, I'll have all four of them in the kitchen helping me crack the eggs. After all - with a dozen eggs in the recipe, I can use some help! I certainly do not need to worry about them cleaning their plates afterwards, because there are rarely any leftovers when we make veggie frittata!
