As I stare out of the window, its all wet, its all snowy and its all grey. So the late afternoon Latte tastes even better. Its Sunday and the weekend is on its lasts legs.

I had too many plans for this weekend. Its a different story that the weather Gods seemed to have another set of plans for us. We did pack in a lot of activity, despite the inclement weather and my apparent condition. So not much to regret about. With Sundays, come Brunches, and that makes everything better !! Brunches always create memories, and even re-kindle some good old ones.

I have my own set of favorite Brunching Joints, and also some Brunch Favorites. As I savored the last bit of my brunch today, I just thought that I should pen down about my all time Brunching Favorite: Frittata.

Silky eggs with a Parmesan crust, stuffed with vegetables, and other proteins, seasoned with some Chili flakes, baked to perfection.

Did you know, it pairs very well, with a dry white wine?! I am sure you did.

Doesnt it just shout out SUNDAY ! It does big time for me. So when the man whips up some Frittata on a cold and grey morning, it does bring a smile. Frittata is more than just a baked omelet. Its a one pot/pan meal in itself. Pretty heavy, a meal. I can never go beyond two slices.

The best thing about baking some frittata is that, one can play with the fillings according to one's choice. While you will need the share of eggs, the rest can be altered. So if you have spinach, throw in some, or if you prefer some sun dried tomatoes, that can also go in. If you are not a Parmesan fan, how about some Pecorino Romano or maybe some aged Gouda.

The man whips up  quite a few versions of it. But my favorite is the one, he made on one of our vacays. This particular Frittata had been whipped up by him, when we were relaxing at a log cabin in the Smoky Mountains,in Tennessee last summer. It was all too perfect. The green mountains, and the whiffs of smoky mist from the trees. The lovely cabin nestled in the hills, a hot tub overlooking it all, great food and not to forget the Man !! Irresistible !!


Olive Oil : 4 tbsp
Potato: 2 large: Diced
Onion: 1 large: Chopped finely
Garlic: 3-4 cloves: Chopped finely
Spinach: 2 cups
Salt and Pepper: to taste
Eggs: 8 to 12 large eggs
Milk: 1/4 cup
Parmesan Cheese: 1/2 cup: Grated
Crushed Red Pepper/Chili Flakes: 1 tsp
Bacon Strips: 2-4 : Chopped


Pre-heat the oven to 350F.

Chop the veggies and keep them aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with some milk, red chili flakes, and 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese, salt and pepper. Keep aside.

Heat oil in a skillet, and saute the potatoes, until they start changing color.

 Add in the onion, garlic and chopped bacon and saute for around 3-5 minutes. Add in the spinach and let it wilt. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the veggie mixture to a large baking dish, and then top with the egg mixture. Bake at 350F for around 10-15 minutes or until a knife inserted at the center comes out clean.

Top with the remaining Parmesan cheese and place under the broiler. Broil until the top is golden brown, and lightly crusty.

Remove from the broiler and let it cool for around a couple of minutes. Cut into wedges and serve .

 Hope all of you whip up this Brunch favorite pretty soon and make Sundays even more memorable.

Bon Appetit !!
