Roasted Carrot and Beet Frittatas

I decided to kick off the week with a dish that is always on my brunch table: frittatas. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, they are flexible; you can use whatever veggies and herbs you have on-hand. Second, they are easy; it take just a few minutes to put them together. And lastly, they taste great both warm or cold. So, you can pack them on a picnic or serve them fresh out of the oven a your dining room table.


For this version, I wanted to feature product from one of our generous event sponsors: Cabot Creamery Cooperative. They sent me multiple pounds of shredded cheeses for recipe development. For these, I went with their Vermont Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

Ingredients makes two 9" frittata, easily halved for one

Roasted Veggies

  • organic carrots, halved lengthwise
  • organic baby beets, quartered lengthwise
  • organic fennel bulb, thickly sliced
  • olive oil
  • Also needed: baking sheet

Frittata

  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1/4 C heavy cream
  • 1 T fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 T snipped fresh chives
  • 1 T fresh dill + more for garnish
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 C shredded cheese (prefer Cabot)
  • Also needed: two 9" round baking pans


Procedure

Roasted Veggies
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the veggies with olive oil and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes until they are fork tender. Remove from the oven and set aside. Keep the carrots and beets that size. Once the fennel is cool enough to handle, dice them.

Frittata
Reduce heat on the oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, herbs, salt, and pepper. Fold in the cheese and 1/2  C diced fennel and divide evenly between your baking pans.


Arrange roasted carrots (and beets) on the frittata and place on a baking sheet. Place sheet in the oven and bake, uncovered, until the eggs are firmed up, approximately 40 minutes.


To serve, transfer from baking pans to serving platters. Arrange another layer of roasted veggies on top and garnish with fresh dill.
