As part of our conscious entertaining series with Feast it Forward, we hosted a brunch for some of our friends. The day before, we visited a sustainable pastured chicken farm and gathered a dozen eggs laid just that morning. It was so cool to see the chickens roaming around the farm snacking on Vitamin A-rich grass and bugs, and going inside and out at their leisure. When cracked open, their yolks were like gold, as they’re meant to be, but so different than what we usually see.
We had to pay tribute to these farm fresh eggs with a beautiful Golden Frittata. This recipe is decadent and delicious, and full of protein – plus it looks beautiful in a cast iron skillet with greens dripping over the sides. Oh, and did we mention, it’s super super easy to make? Like 10 minutes easy. Nothing better than a dish that is easily made but looks exactly the opposite. Enjoy and don’t forget to watch the full episode on Feast it Forward to watch us visit the farm and learn a few fun secrets about golden-yolked eggs. There’s even a bonus recipe that isn’t yet on The Moment!
Golden FrittataServes 4-6
- 1 dozen farm fresh eggs
- 1/2 cup of creme fraiche
- Cracked pepper and salt
- 8 oz (or more!) chopped mushrooms
- Grated parmesan
- 1 lemon
- Greens of your choice
- Chili flakes
Crack the entire dozen into a bowl. Add creme fraiche and whisk until smooth. Season with freshly cracked pepper and salt. Add chopped mushrooms to a skillet, pour over the egg mixture, and cook over low-heat, stirring constantly to get a soft scramble. When the eggs have set on the bottom, but not yet on the top, broil in an oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Top with grated parmesan, a handful of lemon-seasoned greens, and chili flakes. Serve warm.
Special thanks to Feast it Forward!
