    I love eggs, absolutely. Can eat them every part of the day. Usually stay simple with easy does it egg, grape tomatoes and basil after a workout. Will try out your frittata.

  2. I think you’ll love it. Be SURE to use a pan with a handle that you can put in the oven. I prefer the cast iron, even though it can be hard to cleanly plate.

  3. I made this last Sunday. It was really good and the best thing was that I wasn’t hungry for hours.
