H A P P Y V E T E R A N ‘ S DAY
For all those who give up everything to fight for our country. Our future kids. Our freedoms. For those who give their lives to protect ours. For those who live with the fights they fight, for all of us. Thank you.
I believe thanking our nation’s finest should be more than just one day, and should go deeper than a handshake. I mean, we will never understand everything they give up. Ever. But I think it’s important we take a moment to put ourselves in the shoes of the people who fight for us every day. Thank them in a way that has meaning.
First, it’s delicious. Second, what is it with people and fritattas? Whenever I mentioned I was making one (the Crate & Barrel guy, a co-worker) they chuckled at me. Is it the name? Am I missing some inside joke that the world knows and I don’t? I’m not sure.
Anyway, fritatatas can be made basically any way you want. I followed this as a rough guideline, but (somewhat ironically) made my own, with with an Italian twist. ONLY because I was missing Italian breakfasts and my honeymoon.
Like I said, you can make yours however you want. Though I will say, this particular recipe is DELISH. Also, if you have trouble cleaning your cast iron pan (apparently, you’re not supposed to soak it or use soap), I recommend reading this article.
This recipe is also great if you’re making it for just a few people, since the leftovers make for really easy breakfasts.
Basically, this fritatta is the shit. Just sayin’.
