Recipe of the Month: Individual Ricotta Frittatas

June 3, 2011

At the Catherine Ward House, we make every effort to switch between sweet and savory breakfast dishes every morning. Our blog follows suit as we share recipes that we have tested in our kitchen over the past seven years. Last month, we shared a recipe for some great Walnut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. This month we would like to share with you a recipe that comes from one of our General Manager’s local friends – Individual Ricotta Frittatas. This easy dish is a great way to bring a little taste (or reminder) of your B&B experience home. This recipe is from – a great cooking blog filled with breakfasts, lunches, and easy dinners all designed to be cost effective and nutritional. By nature of an individual serving frittata, the ingredient list for this recipe is simply a suggestion, Amy says “The beauty of the frittata is that you can pretty much throw anything you like into them. Any and all veggies are wonderful. Cheeses galore, ham, bacon, whatever you like.”

Follow the jump for the recipe.
