Another Wednesday, another WIAW. Except that usually I’d expect to be sharing mugs of hot cocoa to stave off the winter chill, when in reality we’ve been having a bit of an Indian Summer spell this December in New York City and what I’d really like most of the time is a bowl of fresh berries! Which luckily I got this week, at breakfast for a work seminar. I had a slice of smoked salmon quiche beforehand since it’s usually just bagels, but the fruit was a nice surprise.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the incredible egg. Eaten unadorned or atop other delicious and nutritious foods, eggs are tasty, packed with protein and healthy fats, and pretty much make a complete meal in their neat little shell packages. Keep eggs simple with a scramble or sunny side up preparation, or poach them right up. Those all work when you’re cooking for just one or a few. But if you’re entertaining for brunch, need to feed a family, or just want to feel a little fancier, a frittata is the way to go. You get 4-8 slices that present beautifully on a plate, with colorful veggies, a little cheese, some breakfast sausage or tofu, and a crust that holds it all together (or not – just eggs will do that as well!) One of my favorite preparations is this Veggie Feta Frittata.
