Spring Pea Easter Frittata
Spring has finally arrived with longer days and a blissful breeze in the air. Now that the sunshine encourages us to be more inclined to start our mornings with freshness and excitement, this frittata is an excellent way to get going or to feed a family on Easter Sunday. If you're a fan of creating blown out Easter Eggs with your family, it can be hard to know what to do with all that left over scrambled egg. This frittata is the easiest way to make use of that egg while your family creates festive colorful orbs with the hollowed out shells. Our recipe is delightfully simple and packed full of protein with delicious, fresh flavors of spring. The lemon zest of the yogurt topping adds that extra bit of freshness that really rounds out the dish. Perfect to pair with a Sauvignon Blanc that has some Semillon to add a little bit of body to harmonize with the texture of the eggs.
