If you love easy breakfast recipes, it doesn’t get much easier than this light and fluffy tri-colored pepper corn frittata. This vegetable frittata is full of fresh red, yellow, and orange peppers, corn, leeks and cilantro.
Sip, Sip Hooray, It’s Mom’s Day!
This is the first Mother’s Day that I will be home to celebrate in YEARS. That probably sounds really weird to you, but every year there is a huge volleyball tournament over Mother’s Day. (Who the heck does that?) Well, this year she isn’t playing in this tournament. We get to celebrate together as a family!!!
Even better, I don’t have to get up at 5:00 am, drive to the boonies, and eat a protein bar for breakfast.
Being a volleyball mom may be a LOT, but I know everything I do is appreciated. Last year she made me a giant poster last year…just don’t read the cussing in the car part!! (My birthday is within a few days of Mother’s Day, so I get twice the appreciation LOL.)
I am ready to JaM into a cool glass of Butter and enjoy a real breakfast!
Have you seen JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay yet? It is a wine you need to try next. It is perfect for Mother’s Day, brunch, or anytime! JaM is made by second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. They made these wines in a style they love to enjoy with their friends any day of the week. You can find JaM in not only Butter Chardonnay, but JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling too. A JaM for every occasion!
And don’t expect any boring stuff over at JaM! “We take our wines seriously; we just don’t take ourselves seriously!” – JaM Cellars.
Well, we don’t do boring well so this wine is PERFECT for us! We enjoy good wine and I am always amazed at the quality of this wine. I would never guess you could buy it for under $20 a bottle. Don’t be misled by the awesome flavors, it just tastes expensive. Everything’s Better with Butter! And…..JaM just won the gold medal, SF Chronicle Wine Competition Jan. 2017 and named “Impact Hot Brand” for 2016. How cool is that?
Talk about the best brunch, this year we are going to have this fresh tri-colored pepper, corn and leek veggie frittata. It is something the whole family will enjoy. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables in this classic frittata recipe to make it your own :-).
Light and Fluffy Frittatas
It is so easy to make this light and fluffy egg frittata recipe. The secret I have found is to not skimp on the dairy. Full fat fluffs this frittata up like a souffle. It is hard to tell from my pictures, but when I took this frittata out of the oven, it was a good inch over the edge of the skillet! How cool is that?
How to make a frittata:
Cook your vegetables first. It helps them release their water, and allows the flavors to blend together.
Add the eggs, cream, and cilantro.
Cooking Tip: Add your seasoning now in the raw egg mixture so that it blends throughout the egg evenly.
Pour the egg mixture into the vegetables.
