Sage, onion and ricotta are used in this frittata recipe to give a savoury and smooth lunch dish.

Delicious frittata!

I love a frittata and have at least one a week for lunch or supper.  They are easy to make and you can vary the flavours.   Sage and onion are normally a flavour combination for poultry stuffing…something you might have for Christmas or Thanksgiving but hey, let’s throw it into a frittata!   The sage really lifts this dish and just goes so well with the onions.   I used ricotta as it is a mild cheese as I did not want anything to overpower the onion and sage flavour combination, but I think that a strong Cheddar cheese would be great too.   

I cook so many frittata’s that I should insert their own section on the main page..!  They are a weekly regular for my lunch box too!
