One of the keys to eating successfully is to have quick and healthy meals that you can fall back on when life is crazy busy and you need to put a meal together in 30 minutes or less. One of my favorites is a baked egg and veggie frittata. I love this dish because I usually have everything I need on hand and everyone in the family loves it, even my almost 2 year old! To start, chop all your veggies for the frittata. I have 3 green onions, 1/2 of a red bell pepper, and about 1 cup chopped, fresh spinach. Dude, who even eats spinach from a can? Really. Pour your veggies into a greased baking pan or quiche pan. I have greased my pan with a bit of butter. Crack open and whisk 6 eggs. I prefer to use pastured eggs, which are known to contain the highest levels of vitamins and healthy Omega 3 fatty acids. I purchase mine from a local farmer’s market. Add a bit of sea salt and black pepper to the eggs. Dump your eggs into your baking pan. It should fill the pan about ½, to 2/3 full. If you fill the pan too high, it may be difficult to get the center to cook properly. Place the pan in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Every oven cooks differently, so keep an eye on your frittata to make sure it is not burning. Insert a knife into the middle to make sure it is cooked completely.
