Frittatas and quiches are some of my very favorite foods. A quiche is actually the very first thing I ever cooked on my own! When I was about 11 years old, I remember my mom asking me to help her with dinner. I was especially excited because I usually watched her from a barstool at the counter, and never really got my hands in the cooking. When I was asked to help, I remember thinking that I would be able to crack a few eggs our stir in the cheese. Instead, when I went into the kitchen, my mom had a very detailed written list that explained how I needed to prepare the quiche. I frantically looked for her, afraid to do any sort of cooking alone. However, she was busy gardening and asked me to try it by myself. With the ingredients all ready for me on the counter, I gave it a whirl and hesitantly began completing each step. Looking back, I am sure the outcome of my quiche was barely edible. However, as I put the messy concoction in the oven and crossed my little fingers, I remember feeling incredibly accomplished and eager to see my family’s reaction.
Because of this vivid memory, I think I have a soft spot for any quiche or frittata masterpiece. Whenever we have eggs on hand, I am always so excited to put together a frittata with whatever fresh or frozen vegetables we have on hand. I love the fantastic aromas that fill a home when a frittata is baking, and how that first bite always melts in your mouth. When I found out that Dan’s dad used to make frittatas for them growing up, I knew my love for this simple dish was strong. To me, a frittata is such an amazingly tasty and versatile dish that I could eat again and again.
When you try this Kale and Spinach Pesto Frittata, I am sure you will be just as obsessed with frittatas as I am. Every bite is such a treat, and the healthy aspects of it make it even more irresistible. Great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, this delicious frittata will be one of your favorite, easy dishes as well.Want to try some other great frittata recipes? Check these out:
