Saturday Night Special

We head over to the farmers market every Saturday morning. I drool over all the green - every kind of lettuce, kale, broccoli, green onions, herbs. I come home with a ton of beautiful green things that need to be used fairly quickly. So, this has become our Saturday night (and lasts us through Sunday) meal.

Eat Your Greens! Frittata

3 potatoes, diced

1 large onion, chopped

several tablespoons butter (or fat of choice)

lots of salt and pepper (I also used Herbamere, a season all salt)

10-12 eggs, whisked

1/2 cup shredded cheese (optional, I used goat cheddar)

loads of local produce from the market, cleaned and chopped. I used broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, and kale.

Melt butter in a large, oven-proof skillet over med-low heat. Add the potatoes, onion, salt and pepper. Cook until about halfway done. Add broccoli. Cook everything until just almost soft. Add zucchini and squash, cook another 2 minutes. Add kale and cook until wilted. Whisk your eggs, optional cheese, and more salt/pepper. Smooth out all your veggies to cover the skillet evenly. Pour eggs evenly over vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 minutes. Heat oven to 350. Finish cooking the frittata in the oven for another 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are set.



  1. Looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing, I'm always looking for new ways with eggs.

  2. Oh Megan, what a charmed life. It is all so beautiful, including you and the children. I think of you often and miss you. I am happy that you are so happy! Wish I could be your next door neighbor. So what we would live three miles away instead of three hundred? :) I bet you are so excited to experience the farm with the fall air!
