Real Recipe: Spinach and Cheddar Frittata (and other yummy egg dishes!)

So Easter is over. And my did it fly! I ate lots of delicious food, how about you? :)

Sadly, I was not witness (nor a participant for that matter!) to any egg hunts this year. Nor did I dye any eggs. Oh well. There’s always next year!

However, if you participated in the egg dying/hunting extravaganzas and have leftover eggs to use, here’s a couple of my favorite egg dishes:

1) Broccoli Feta Omelet – yum! My other favorite combo is kale and cheddar. Some good nitrate-free local bacon never hurts either :)

2) Spinach and Cheddar Frittata
