A hearty meal for brunch or summer supper, Frittata is a popular choice for a meal on our farm. It's a tasty catch all for the extra things from the garden, and each time they are made a little bit different.
This steak Frittata is more filling than just veggies, and it's pretty enough to become a main meal. Thanks to David Venable of QVC for sharing, this is a recipe your family will love.
A little tip; This is one of those meals that just can't go wrong. It's great hot out of the oven, but wait until you taste it the next day. I like to wrap a piece in waxed paper for the lunchbox as well.
