Corn and Baby Marrow Frittata

Eggs are so great. I know they aren’t the most environmentally friendly of foods but they are so convenient to cook and such a great source of protein. It is also pretty versatile food, you can do so much with it. Fortunately, all f the kids, except Kiara eat eggs. It makes breakfasts much easier because 2 scrambled eggs each and they are good to go.

My favourite breakfast is a frittata loaded with veggies because you can really add anything in. I often take all the last of veggies, chop them up and make a big, delicious frittata.

Corn is like the free pass vegetable isn’t it? Even the fussiest of eaters will eat corn. When I add it into a meal the kids will tolerate it before any other vegetable.

This is the perfect meal to make over the weekends when you don’t really feel like cooking because you can just throw everything together.

    Baby marrow is a new one for me. I hadn’t heard of it. I do like frittatas though.

    My kids will love it. Looks healthy and testy too. They don’t like Corn and i think this is a great way to eat them this. Thanks for helping me.
