Updated on March 31, 2018

Background

My husband was what he laughingly called "FBI" which stood for full-blooded Italian. I, however, was called "IBM" or Italian By Marriage. One of my husband's Easter traditions was to make a combination Italian Souffle and Frittata. He had learned how to make this growing up in a household of 100% Italian-blooded relatives.

My Italian husband was my second husband and we had a mixture of cultures in our household. My children were part Polish and part Czechoslovakian. My stepchildren were half Italian and half German. There was never any controversy as to what we served for holidays. It was always Italian. Even when my FBI husband passed away several years ago, my Polish children insisted on the Italian cuisine for the holidays.

To this day, I still make Fritta for Easter Brunch even though I have long since quit making the traditional Easter Bread. I still shop at the Italian Store for my ingredients for this Easter delight.
