Sun-dried Tomato and Ricotta Frittata is the perfect breakfast for dinner recipe. Cooked in a cast iron skillet this frittata is light and fluffy with pockets of ooey gooey cheese throughout. Bejeweled with sweet sun-dried tomatoes, basil and flavorful sausage this is my all time favorite brinner!


#JonesBrinner is one of the many reasons we are so excited to be partnering with Jones Dairy Farm again. February is National Hot Breakfast Month, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE breakfast. I just don’t have the time to cook up my favorites in the morning. That is exactly why our friends at Jones Dairy Farm created this super fun website Breakfast + Dinner=Brinner. They want to help you enjoy the breakfast foods that you love at your dinner table. I’m game!!!

The site is packed with fabulous brinner recipes, cooking tips and a pretty fun quiz. And of course the RECIPE for this amazing frittata. You have to check it out. My favorite thing on the site is the cooking tips for eggs.

Earlier this month I shared with you that although I am pretty handy in the kitchen I just haven’t mastered eggs. I can cook a lot of things and bake my little heart out. However, eggs…  UGH! They are my nemesis. Over easy, sunny side up, scrambled, omelets, soft boiled, hard boiled. It is one food that really challenges me. I have to say that I mastered hard boiled eggs last summer. I was feeling pretty good, then I had this amazing idea for this Royal Bacon Breakfast Burger and I knew that I had to come through.

After 2 attempts and some fantastic tips, voila! Perfect sunny side up eggs. I can’t believe it! Chad was thrilled as he loves ’em and I haven’t made them successfully until now. I mean, he did get some really awesome fried eggs.  LOL. You know when the top just won’t cook, you flip it. hahaha

Seriously check out the Egg Cooking Tips, and this amazing loaded fritatta or Ricotta Frittata with Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce, you will thank me. I even have individual Sun-dried Tomato Ricotta Frittatas, they are the perfect breakfast in a bowl.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Ricotta Frittata

This frittata is absolutely amazing, I literally confiscated all the frittatas that we recipe tested (Chad and Munchkin each had a bite). I ate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner until they were gone. Oh my heavens it is light, fluffy and completely amazing. With pockets of fluffy cream cheese in each bite and little sun-dried tomato jewels throughout and all-natural chicken sausage from our friends at Jones Dairy Farm it is truly the ultimate brinner recipe! You are going to love it. Make some homemade Ricotta to really make this dish shine.
