Insider's Viewpoint: Expert Supermarket Advice: Egg-cellent Easter Frittatas. Whitney Packebush, Corporate Dietitian, Fareway Stores. Fruits And Veggies More Matters.org
Spring has sprung – and with it comes the Easter Holiday. That means eggs, eggs, and more eggs. Yes, eggs are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, but you may also be looking for ways to perk up your tired, worn out scrambled eggs. Combine that with the fact that we should all be eating more vegetables, and I think we have a solution.

Mini egg frittatas are a great solution for tired scrambled eggs …

  • You can make 6 frittatas at one time.
  • Your children can get involved and make their own, thus encouraging them to try new foods.
  • You can tailor each frittata to each individual’s taste.
  • Mini frittatas require hardly any work.
