Recipe: Frittatas are always a favourite

Mushroom Frittata recipe

By Renate Engelbrecht

Monday, 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.

SAMFA has a way of sprucing up mushrooms just the right way for everyone in the family to enjoy – from a two-year-old toddler who doesn’t want to eat much other than fish fingers and chips, to four-year-old Miss Clever Pants and both her parents.

So, here it is – the recipe to keep handy for days when your brain just stops thinking and you have no idea what to make for dinner, or for those days when you need some lunchbox inspo.
