Cheese and egg frittata with sunflower sprouts and sweet potatoes

There has been lots of behind the scenes planning and finally the day is here. A BIG surprise shower for Maria and Josh from Two Peas and Their Pod! Today is your virtual shower for baby pea!! A group of your blogger pals have gotten together to shower you with virtual love and to celebrate your sweet little baby.

Whenever I am at parties you can find me in the corner stuffing my face with all sorts of savories. This protein junkie always craves cheese and eggs so what better than to cook up a frittata for your shower.

Maria and Josh I hope you enjoy your party! All my love and the best to you and your sweet family during this special time in your lives.

Maria, I hope you like that graphic I designed for you. I know how much you love the color green. There is lots of green in this post. It kinda matches your blog.

Baby peas, eggs and your favorite cheese will make the perfect frittata. Take your pick on what kind of cheese you want to use….

While in Telluride this summer I became addicted to sunflower sprouts. They are a delicate little leafy green with a slight hint of sunflower flavor. Speaking of sunflower ~ my Sunflower Seed Cookie Sandwiches would be nice at this baby shower too. They can be served to all the gluten free and vegan guests.

This frittata is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or mini meals. Pack it in a lunch box. Or serve it at a bridal or in this case baby shower!

Did I mention that a BIG dash of Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce makes it even better? If you like hot sauce that is. Also a side of roasted sweet potatoes or baked sweet potato fries is a great thing.

Baby Peas and Cheese Frittata

Rating: 51

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 large organic Eggs
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) Egg Whites
  • 1/2 cup fat free Milk
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) shredded Cheddar Cheese, Parmesan or your favorite choice
  • 1 Leek, cleaned and chopped into small pieces
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 cup Baby Peas (I used frozen, thawed)
  • pinch of fine Sea Salt
  • pinch of Black Pepper
  • Optional Ingredients
  • Sunflower Seed Sprouts
  • Micro Greens
  • Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce

Method

  • Pre heat broiler with the oven rack in the middle. Whisk together eggs, milk and 1 ounce of the cheese in a bowl. In a 12 inch oven safe fry pan sauté leeks and garlic with olive oil over medium high heat until softened and slightly browned. Add peas, some salt and pepper to taste. Stir and heat for another minute or so. Add egg mixture to the pan. Tilt the pan and make sure the egg distributes evenly around the pan. Also nudge the pea mixture around if needed to make sure it covers the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook about 5 minutes or until the frittata starts to pull away from the edges of the pan. Top with cheese and broil for about 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted & slightly browned. Watch carefully so it does not burn.
