Chive And Goat Cheese Spring Frittata

What I love most about making frittatas is that you really can customize them to fit every season, and almost any flavor profile you want. 

Spring, however, is by far my favorite time of year for making frittatas because all of the crisp and flavorful spring ingredients pair so well together, and make for the perfect meal if you ask me.

Spring Chive and Goat Cheese Frittata - The Well Essentials

The best part about frittatas is that they really are so easy to make and are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Usually I will make a frittata on Sunday and then will serve it for breakfast/lunch throughout the week. 

While there is nothing quite like a just out of the oven frittata, they can also be served cold for an even easier mid-day meal.

When it comes to making this chive and goat cheese spring inspired frittata my best advice is to seek out locally fresh ingredients...it's kind of the whole point.

When I am thinking about my own personal seasonal eating, and the way I cook seasonally for my family it all starts with a trip to the farmers market and I wait to get inspired (or challenged) by whatever is currently in season and available for me to cook with.

Right now since we are nearing the end of the spring season they are so many wonderful spring onions, radishes, micro greens, herbs and leafy greens flooding the farmers market.

When combined with local eggs and goat's cheese these fresh and flavorful spring veggies come together to create the prettiest, and complimentary frittata that I truly could eat all day long.
