SUN-DRIED TOMATO GOAT CHEESE FRITTATA
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
It fuels your morning and gets your brain and body going. I love mixing up our breakfast options each week to keep my family excited and trying new things. Today’s Sun-Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Frittata using Handsome Brook Farm eggs is an easy dish that you can make for your family and feel good feeding it to them. It is vegetarian, gluten-free and packed with protein rich eggs, savory sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, red bell pepper, spices and soft goat cheese.
One thing I love about frittatas is how customizable they are. You can literally open up your refrigerator and pull out any leftovers from vegetables to meat to cheeses and create a delicious combination. If sun-dried tomato and goat cheese isn’t your thing try sausage, red bell pepper and cheddar cheese or broccoli, cheddar cheese and shredded chicken. You could try a new combination every week to keep things exciting for your family. If you like to have breakfast ready and waiting on school days like I do, then you can prepare this on Sunday and use it for up to 4 days stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
This Sun-Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Frittata is also a great recipe to add to a brunch menu or something to make for a special occasion, like a bridal or baby shower. The colors and the flavors are the perfect addition to a table of food that you are going to share with your favorite people. Eggs are always a healthy, filling option for a crowd.
Speaking of eggs, I want to introduce you to Handsome Brook Farm eggs . I am so excited to be partnering with them this year to share more about their pasture raised eggs and what sets them apart from the rest of the eggs you might see at the store. Handsome Brook Farm organic pasture-raised beauties contain no pesticides, hormones, GMOS or antibiotics. That’s a lot to love about those small but mighty eggs!
The eggs have a bright golden-orange yolk, thicker fresh whites and a rich taste. My favorite part— their hens have 108 sq ft of outdoor space per hen, which gives them the freedom to flap, flock, and forage to their hearts’ content. Handsome Brook farms are certified by American Humane that audits the farms regularly to ensure all of Handsome Brook farms meet their high animel welfare standards.
You might be wondering what their hens eat to produce such delicious and nutritious eggs. Their hens eat grass, bugs, and other natural fare as well as supplemental feed which consists of corn, wheat, alfalfa, oyster shell, trace minerals, and soymeal for protein. More than 95% of their farms are entirely organic. They also have a few soy free organic farms and a few GMO-free farms. You are what you eat, right?
This quote from a Handsome Brook Farm farmer sums it up nicely, “Our chickens love being out in the sunshine, eating their natural diet in our large, fenced pasture. Growing for Handsome Brook allows us to have happy hens producing healthy eggs on our family farm.” –Martha and Scott Wagner — Tyrone, PA.
Handsome Brook Farm work with a network of family farms across seven states from the East Coast to the Midwest. All of their farms are small, family owned, and almost all are organic. The farmers go above and beyond by dedicating acres and acres of organic rotated pasture solely to their birds, giving frequent health checkups, creating special nesting areas, and more. This is so important when it comes to buying eggs and knowing where your food comes from and how it is taken care of.
Another thing that I like is Handsome Brook Farms’ outlook on our food system. Their interconnected series of small family farms proves that it’s possible to produce farmers market quality food with greater care and still thrive like crazy.
Today’s Sun-Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Frittata might look and sound fancy but I promise it is easy to make, only taking a total of about 30 minutes start to finish. It is packed with healthy ingredients that your family will enjoy for breakfast or a crowd would enjoy for a special occasion. If you haven’t jumped on the frittata bandwagon yet, now is the time!
