Farmers’ Market Frittatas

Farmers' Market Frittatas

Resembling a crustless quiche, a frittata is an Italian-style omelette that combines eggs with vegetables, cheese and sometimes meat. Its preparation differs from a French omelette in that the ingredients are mixed into the uncooked eggs, rather than being folded inside.

Frittatas come together quickly and are delicious any time of day. Pair them with a fruit salad for breakfast or lunch, or with a tossed green salad, crusty bread and a glass of white wine for a simple supper.

Ideal for spring, frittatas can be prepared using whatever garden-fresh produce inspires you at the farmers' market—from tender asparagus and new potatoes to the season's first zucchini. Here are a few recipes to get you started. The rest is up to your imagination.
