8 eggs

⅟₄ cup of milk

2 cups of sour cream

½ cup of grated cheddar cheese (grate your own for a rich, cheesy flavor)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons salted butter (or, use unsalted and salt to taste)

1 cup of broccoli (frozen is fine for convenience’s sake — just throw them in the pan)

1 cup of spinach (frozen works here, too)

½ cup red bell pepper, diced


1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.

2. Beat eggs and milk together in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sour cream, cheese, salt and pepper.

3. Melt the butter in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, transfer the veggies to a baking dish after you cook them in the next step.

4. Cook the broccoli, spinach and red bell pepper in the skillet until they start to soften. Remove the skillet from the heat and pour the egg mixture over the vegetables.

5. Place the skillet in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the egg is solid in the middle. You can test if the egg is cooked by sticking a toothpick or knife into your frittata. If it comes out dry, your frittata is cooked.

6. Remove from the oven and let cool.

7. Slice and enjoy! Your frittata will keep in the fridge for at least a few days.
