Expert Tips

  • Roasted squash can be substituted for the sweet potatoes in the Sweet Potato and Kale Frittata recipe.
  • The vegetables that you choose to use in your frittata can change with the seasons. For a spring frittata, try using 1 1/2 cups of chopped asparagus, 1 1/2 cups diced new potatoes, 3 cups spinach and 1 cup chèvre (goat) cheese. Celebrate the bounty of summer with 3 cups roasted summer vegetables like bell peppers, tomatoes and zucchini with a zest of pepper Jack cheese. In the winter, make a comforting frittata with 3 cups diced russet potatoes, 1/2 cup caramelized onions, 1 1/2 cups cooked sausage crumbles and 1 1/2 cups smoked Gouda cheese.
