Summer Frittata Recipes

Frittatas are hot in more ways than one. They’re my summer entertaining staple as they require a few fresh ingredients and very little prep time when I have last minute guests. Everyone seems to love them (or so they say) especially my husband! I typically use egg whites to offer a healthy option on a lunch buffet. Frittatas can also make for a meal in itself when paired with some of my favorite fiber filled GG crackers.
Below are my three favorites. Each frittata is inspired by a different region. The tomato mozzarella has an Italian flavor, almost like a pizza if you will (or won’t). The spinach and feta frittata has a Greek influence and the squash and onion bring me back to my Middle Eastern roots.
Here are the recipes to inspire and some frittata pans to get your egg game on!
