Spinach Feta Frittata
When Laura Fall-Sutton of North Chicago, Illinois wants something special and substantial for brunch or breakfast, she relies on this full-flavored favorite for family and friends. LAURA’S TIP: “Canned, chopped tomatoes can be added for color or a cup of them substituted for the spinach. Or add a green salad to this meat- and wheat-free entree and serve up breakfast for dinner!”
