LET'S DO BRUNCH - AN EGG FRITTATA

A frittata is simply an Italian open-faced egg omelette enriched with meats, cheeses and/or vegetables. Frittata (translation is fried) is cooked over low heat, more slowly than an omelette and it is not folded. It can also be baked, similar to a crustless quiche. Serve as is or on an Italian hero or as a panini.


With the football season here, sleeping in a bit on Sunday mornings and enjoying a cozy brunch by the fire is a nice way to spend family time. Brunch, a combination of breakfast and lunch food is typically served between 11:00AM and 3:00PM.

Brunch originated in England in the late 19th century and became popular in the United States in the 1930’s. Cocktails with brunch (mimosas, bellinis and more) is part of the culture today, certainly while cheering on your favorite football team!

A frittata is an easy breakfast or brunch item, can be made in advance and just heated in a pan on the stove top or in the oven.
