Easy Caprese Frittata

IMG_5547

Frittatas are a breakfast staple in our house. If we are home on the weekends and not on our way to the ski hill I take the extra few minutes to whip up a frittata. We eat them so often that my two year old daughter calls a frittata ‘eggs-tata’.

This Italian version of a frittata has become our new family favourite. It is packed full of flavour and pairs perfectly with avocado toast!

Feel free to add a couple slices of salami or prosciutto to add a bit more savoury flavour and Italian flair to this recipe.

Enjoy

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Heat a cast iron pan to medium heat and add olive oil. Dice onion and garlic and toss into pan, sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Slice the tomatoes and bocconcini and set aside. Place the tomato slices on a piece of paper towel to remove some of the water. This will aid in cooking the frittata.
  3. Finely chop the kale (do not use the stems) and half the basil and add to the pan. Sauté greens for an additional 2 minutes while whisking eggs and water together in a bowl. The water can make the eggs a bit more fluffy.
  4. Pour whisked eggs into the cast iron (or other oven safe pan). Add sliced tomatoes and sliced bocconcini in a pretty pattern on top plus salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer the entire frittata pan into the oven and bake for 15-17 minutes or until middle of frittata is set.
  6. Remove frittata from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with chopped basil and optional avocado or add avocado toast on the side!
