Baked Frittata with Artichokes, Sun Dried Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese

Baked Frittata with Artichokes, Sun Dried Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese

If you read my last post about healthy breakfast ideas, you know I am a huge fan of breakfast foods. Unfortunately, I work during the weeks and don’t have a ton of time to make glamorous morning meals. I love my bowl of oatmeal, but when I have extra time I try to spice things up a bit.

A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of cooking brunch with one of my favorite blogging friends, Katie, from Good Life Eats. We met last summer and hung out at Blogher Food-I just love Katie! When she emailed and said she was coming to Utah for a visit, I was super excited. This time we made sure we had time to cook together.

We made brunch that was fit for a king: homemade granola with yogurt and fruit, a baked frittata with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and feta cheese,  and pear almond scones with a honey almond glaze. Everything was fabulous. We had so much fun in the kitchen-we are a great team. I just wish we lived closer so we could do it more often:(

I am sharing the frittata with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, and feta cheese recipe today.  I am usually not an egg person, but this dish is stellar. I loved the Medterranean flavors. I am a huge artichoke fan, so I used a very generous amount:) This dish is great for feeding a crowd too, everyone loved it.

Head on over to Katie’s blog for the pear almond scone recipe-they are amazing-you don’t want to miss this recipe!

Thanks again Katie-I can’t wait until we can meet up again. Hopefully sooner than later:)

Baked Frittata with Artichokes, Sun Dried Tomatoes, and Feta Cheese

Ingredients:

18 eggs
1 T olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small jar of sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
3 15 oz. jars of artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
1/2 cup Italian parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups crumbled feta cheese (I used Athenos Basil and Tomato Feta)

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, whisk the 18 eggs together.
2. In a medium pan, saute the onion in the olive oil until tender. Add the garlic. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the onions and garlic to the eggs. Stir in the sun dried tomatoes and artichokes. Add the parsley and salt and pepper. Stir in the feta cheese.
4. Pour the egg mixture into a 9 by 13 glass Pyrex dish that has been coated with cooking spray. If you want, you can add extra cheese to the top of the egg mixture once it is in the pan.
5. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
6. Let the egg casserole cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into squares and serve.

    The food looks great, and I really like your white/black fruit stand.

    Jessica — January 25, 2010 @ 10:45 am

    Yum! I don’t think I could eat this for breakfast but I would DEFINITELY eat it for dinner! I love egg dishes for dinner, and I bet this was a perfect brunch. The Mediterranean flavors sound fabulous.

    I am sitting on this bumpy bus ride into the city and would love a slice of this frittata instead of the greasy chips they served. Thing I have a new business venture for you! ;) Looks fan-flippin’-tabulous!

    Blond Duck — January 25, 2010 @ 11:23 am

    It looks amazing. How many does it feed? I’d probably have to half it for the two of us…

    katrina — January 25, 2010 @ 11:52 am

    Sounds great ! I am a little daunted by the 18 eggs, though! I’d obviously have to scale it down unless I want to eat this for a week.

    twopeas — January 25, 2010 @ 12:24 pm

    This recipe fills a 9 by 13 pan. So it serves a lot of people! Just depends on how big you cut the squares. I would say 24. You can half it and do it in an 8 by 8 pan.

    grace — January 25, 2010 @ 12:42 pm

    i love frittatas. they’re just as good, if not better than, quiches, and much less work. and any time sun-dried tomatoes are involved, i’ll be first in line for seconds. :)

    What a wonderfful thing to have shared that time together. And the breakfast, wow!!!! That bowl of fruit looks amazing and I love the frittata.

    Sarah — January 25, 2010 @ 3:20 pm

    Sounds great — have you ever substituted roasted red peppers for the sun-dried tomatoes?

    Robin Sue — January 25, 2010 @ 4:21 pm

    Hi Maria
    I have been enjoying sundried tomatoes more often since it is winter and the fresh ones aren’t so fresh. I really like the texture but have never thought to put them in eggs. Will try that. I do like them in salads and dips. So I have learned something new!!

    carolyn — January 25, 2010 @ 5:10 pm

    You had me at sundried tomato! And I’m a sucker for anything with feta. We’re big frittata fans over here.
