Saucy Mediterranean Frittata: A Savory Dish For Any Meal Of The Day | Growing Up Herbal | Enjoy this deliciously healthy egg-based recipe any time of the day. It's quick and easy to make. Perfect for busy mamas!

I love eggs. Especially the cage-free variety that come straight from the farm. Plus, they’re so healthy for you!

Eggs are a good source of protein and healthy fats, they contain a good variety of vitamins and minerals, they contain antioxidants, and most people can tolerate them (unless of course, you’re allergic to the whites).

Today, I’m gonna share one of my favorite egg recipes with you – Saucy Mediterranean Frittata. This delicious recipe doesn’t taste eggy, my kids love it, and it can be eaten for any meal… breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Not only that, but it takes right around 30-minutes to make from start to finish, and it can be used as a side dish or a complete meal. It’s so versatile!

  1. Tasty recipe! Here in Greece we love that kind of coocking for a good breakfast or a fast launch! Thank you for the idea! In the oven it should taste even better!

    1. Thanks! I’m super curious about learning more about Mediterranean cooking as I’ve heard it’s one of the healthiest ways of eating in the world. It has me experimenting with lots of different foods from that region. Thanks for your comment!
