Three Cooks One Kitchen: Veggie Frittata

in Breakfast, Other

You may or may not have noticed that the blog was missing a little something last month.  Erin, Joanna, and I decided to take a month off from Three Cooks One Kitchen for one very little and special reason.  Little Miss Everly was born a little over a month ago and, rightfully so, Joanna was a bit busy with mom duty.  I’d call that a good reason for a 3C1K break, if I do say so myself!

But lucky for you, the three cooks are back!

Erin and I met at Joanna’s house this past Sunday morning for one of my favorite things: a girls’ brunch.  We wanted our first 3C1K after our break to be something simple, yet delicious.

3c1k_veggie_frittata 3After some Google searching and blog reading, we decided on this Caramelized Onion & Red Bell Pepper Frittata from the Everyday Detox cookbook, as shared on Brittany’s blog.  All three of us love eggs, it was an easy way to get some veggies in early in the day, and it sounded super simple.  In other words, we were sold.

3c1k_prep_Hannah_JoannaWe began by getting all of the ingredients prepped and ready.

3c1k_Joanna_eggsJoanna was an egg-cracking pro and managed to get all eight eggs cracked without any shells falling into the bowl… at least as far as we knew 😉

3c1k_hannah_red_peppersI sliced up some red bell pepper and half of a yellow onion.

3c1k_Joanna_eggs 2Of course we had to stop and take plenty of pictures while we cooked.  The combination of picture-taking and talking normally results in every recipe taking twice as long to make as it should!

3c1k_erin_strawberriesAfter we prepped the frittata ingredients, Erin got to work slicing up some strawberries.  They were the perfect accompaniment to our brunch frittata.

3c1k_Hannah_frittataIn a cast iron pan, we sautéed up the onions and peppers in a bit of butter.  The fresh spinach was thrown in at the last minute until it wilted.

3c1k_Joanna_frittataOnce the veggies were all cooked, Joanna added in the eggs.  We then topped everything off with crumbles of fresh goat cheese.  I think it was at this point that we started getting really excited for the end result.  It looked so pretty going into the oven!

3c1k_Joanna_frittata 2The instructions called for the frittata to be baked for 10 to 15 minutes, but we found 20 minutes to be the perfect length of time.  Nobody wants a soggy frittata!

3c1k_veggie_frittataIsn’t she a beauty?  I love how the top turned out to be perfectly golden brown.

veggie_frittataWe each sliced up a large chunk of the frittata and served it alongside strawberries.  I also may or may not have dipped my frittata slice into ketchup.  What can I say?  I love ketchup with my eggs.

We enjoyed this frittata so much that the three of us finished off the entire pan.  Were we hungry?  Sure.  But it was also just really delicious!  Now I need to buy my own cast iron skillet so that I can make this during Sunday meal prep.  It would be perfect for breakfasts for the work week.

    It's been a lonnnngggg time since I've had a fritata! I don't have a cast iron skillet either (boo) but I *think*/hope some of my pans can go in the oven -- your idea for making it on Sunday for breakfast during the week sounds like something I need to do.

      Cooking with friends is SO much fun. I enjoy cooking, but I love it even more when plenty of chit-chatting is involved.
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien June 11, 2015, 4:06 pm
    Weeee I just got that cookbook in the mail! I made her roasted veg salad with shallot dressing and I'm obsessed. Next up, fritatta!
    • ClnEatingVegGrl June 11, 2015, 4:18 pm
      Yes, you MUST make the frittata! It's delicious!
  • Kennedy Cole@KCole's Creative Corner June 11, 2015, 7:39 pm
    I absolutely adore frittatas. I literally hoard frittata recipes. And this looks like the perfect recipe to add to my collection. I've made lots and lots of frittatas in my days, but never once have I used goat cheese! That's such a great idea! I usually add mozzarella and gruyere cheeses, but I'll have to add goat cheese to the rotation next time I get around to making a frittata! I recently made a cooking and baking blog, too. http://kcolescreativecorner.com I would greatly appreciate it if you would check it out! Thanks so much!

      Goat cheese is a seriously awesome addition to frittatas. You definitely need to add it in the next time you make one!
