Recipe: Frittatas are always a favourite

Mushroom Frittata recipe

By Renate Engelbrecht

Mon, Feb 28

Come what may, Frittatas are a favourite in our home as it is easy to make, and you can chop and change the recipe quite easily by just replacing some of the ingredients with whatever you have in the fridge.

This recipe is one of my favourites, though. It’s tasty and healthy and with mushrooms being available in stores all year round, it’s the ideal recipe to keep close by.
