Zesty Eggplant Frittata

Zesty Eggplant Frittata—Courtesy of Doug and Sherry Pauls - 2nd Generation Egg Farmers

Doug and Sherry Pauls love frittatas for their versatility. Enjoyed for lunch, or dinner, this simple frittata recipe incorporates seasoned roasted eggplant, cherry tomatoes, onion, garlic and fresh herbs. The Pauls family likes to use vegetables from their garden, and of course eggs from their hens!

Years ago, friends in Thunder Bay introduced the Schillings to this simple recipe, and it has been a family favourite ever since. Just add pancake batter to warmed baking sheets then place in the oven for about 20 minutes. Watch as large bubbles form on the baking sheet. Remove from the oven, roll them up, and top with berries, sliced apple, banana, syrup and more!

Ham, Brie, and Egg Pitas—Courtesy of Danny Guillemette and Hélène Claude - 1st Generation Egg Farmers

Danny and Hélène’s favourite meal is Sunday morning breakfast with their two children. They love serving scrambled eggs for the family, and one of their favourite scrambled egg recipes is ham, Brie and scrambled eggs tucked into a pita pocket. It’s as simple as adding chopped smoked ham and diced Brie cheese to scrambled eggs, then placing the warm mixture in a lettuce-lined pita pocket. It’s a great on-the-go breakfast whether you’re off to the barn, or to the office!
