Farm Fresh Egg Tortilla

The simplest recipes start with the best ingredients. Take our dinner the past two nights, for example. A tortilla (frittata?) made with farm fresh eggs purchased from our innkeepers in Norwich, VT on the Boston blogger King Arthur weekend made for a filling and quick post-work and post wine class meal.

I pulled this recipe together in my head based on ingredients we had in the house since we didn’t quite make it to the grocery store last weekend.


6 farm eggs

1 cup roasted red peppers

1/4 cup grated parmesan

3 small potatoes, sliced in very thin rounds

ground black pepper

farm eggs grating parmesan

I simply whisked the eggs until fluffy and poured them into a pie plate with the rest of the ingredients, stirred, and put the whole thing in the oven at 350 for about 22 minutes.


At the very end, I put the broiler to high and left the tortilla in the oven for about three minutes, until it was bubbly and brown on top.


I served it with a little dollop of garlic aioli. But that’s not all. . .

I also dug into the bag of delights that I bought at King Arthur and baked a heartland honey sunflower bread. Yes, it was from a box, but I did have to mix all of the ingredients, knead the dough, wait for it to rise, shape it, wait for it to rise again, and bake it.

The box has the Oldways Whole Grain Stamp! Hooray! Check out all of the sunflower seeds in the dough, 

The bread came out perfectly and made me want to make some bread without a box very soon.

This was one of the easiest and most delicious dinners I have made in awhile, and we had plenty of leftovers. I need to remember to make enough food every Monday so that when I get home from wine class at around 10 Tuesday night we have something easy to heat up. It made all of the difference!

I am having another trying week, but I am trying to stay positive because the Newport Wine and Food Festival with some great friends is this weekend.

What is keeping you positive this week? Or if you are having a not-so-great week like me, what is bringing you down? Whatever it is, I hope it gets better!

    The picture with the purple potatoes is simply wonderful.
    It must have been such a delicious dish – mmmm The Autumn makes me think of good dinners and warm conversations :)

    I absolutely love having breakfast for dinner and this dish looks simple and delicious! I really wish I had picked up some of those farm eggs now…

    Whenever I’m having a bad week, I try to focus on what is important and cancel anything that isn’t. You need “me” time and yet we often put that as last.

    Let me know if you need anything – words of encouragement or a glass of bubbly. xo

    You baked bread at home! Yay! It looks gorgeous.

    I made an omelet with my farm eggs, but your tortilla sounds more exciting.

    Hang in there, stay positive, and you’ll get through it.

    And like Michelle, said… if you need anything, you know where to find us.

    This omelet look phenomenal. Is there anything better than fresh eggs? I can’t buy them from the store anymore… which is a very good thing. Buy Fresh, Buy Local! :-)

    ooh, that looks delicious! maybe that’s what i should do as my pantry is getting pretty bare and i’m holding out on the grocery store. sounds like you have an awesome weekend ahead, just keep thinking of that!!

    That looks awesome and would certainly bring some positivity to my week :) The bread looks so pretty, too :)

    I’m kinda on work overload and going crazy with so many random loose ends (yes, I’m STILL reading blogs. Oops). But I’m thinking positively because it’s almost the weekend and I NEED some time off. Plus, I have a few days vacation in 2 weeks! Phew!

    The shot of the veggies in the pan before you add the egg is stunning. The colors are marvelous. I just wish you had included a photo of both the fritatta and the bread sliced into! I would love to see what they look like.

    Oh yum! The King Arthur Flour bread mix looks so good. I love King Arthur Flour products.
