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….

Feta ~ Gruyére ~ Mozzarella ~ Parmesan ~ Brie. Anything goes. Really.

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.

  8. Marla, this looks absolutely incredible! Your photos are stunning as well–I particularly love the first frittata photo. Thanks so much for all of your efforts in coordinating this fabulous virtual baby shower, and I adore your graphic pea design! xo

  9. OH MY Marla! that look incredible!!!

    Thanks so much for all you and Lisa did to put this “party” together! The only thing better would have been to do it in person!!

  10. Yummm!!! I want a bite of this right now, looks so delicious! damn girl, your photos are rockin’ – awesome table! Thank you for being the best EVER co-host, I had a blast organizing this with you!! You’re right, time to think of our next project/party… xoxo

    • Rebecca, you must! I am addicted to those sunflower seed sprouts. Hope I can find them easily (& reasonably priced) in the OC. They were all over Telluride :)

  11. I’m having such a great time (distracting myself from REAL work tonight) reading all of these baby shower posts. I can only imagine how excited Maria and Josh must have been to find out! The frittata looks delicious – can you believe I’ve never made one before? Must change this…

  12. What a sweet gift for the little pea to be! Also, what beautiful photos. I LOOOOOOOOVE your new boards. You did such a great job. I think you might have another side-business possibility in your future.

    • Hey Brooke, gosh girl I am gonna miss those “boards” That is actually a little table from the place we stay in at Telluride. So it will be a “seasonal” piece. You will know when I am out there when you see that table top in my photos 😉 xo

  13. I feel like frittatas are the new quiche when it comes to things like baby showers…way healthier and way more delicious! You did SUCH a great job planning this! I love Maria and Josh, so it’s made me so happy to see so many people celebrating their new pea!

  17. I made this for lunch today and it was delish! Myself, Hubby and three little munchkins demolished this beautiful frittata with a lovely side salad and wholegrain roll in no time at all. The best part – I did not hear ‘I’m Hungry’ for a very long time. Was well received and kept everybody satisfied for hours. Thank you x

    • Emily, that is such wonderful news!! Thanks so much for sharing with me. I LOVE to hear when people have great success with my recipes ~ even better when the kids love it too. Happy to also hear there were no “I’m hungry’s” for quite some time after. We know how that goes 😉 Have a great Sunday! ~m
