Last weekend Ryan’s good friend Ben was in town. We went out to eat a lot during his visit, so by the time Sunday morning rolled around, we were in the mood to eat breakfast at home. I ended up preparing a fiesta frittata that we all greatly enjoyed. It’s packed with vegetables, delicious and quite filling!
A few weeks ago, I agreed to try out a sample of Pete & Gerry’s organic eggs through a campaign with BlogHer and put them to use in this frittata.
The family farms that supply the eggs sold by the Pete & Gerry’s are all Certified Humane® meaning the hens that produce the eggs will always have ample space and shelter in clean, well-ventilated barns, gentle handling (to limit stress), freedom to live like hens do naturally, nutritious high-quality feed free of antibiotics or hormones and continuous access to fresh water.
Without a doubt the eggs elevated the flavor and made the frittata taste incredibly fresh. And we all felt good about eating eggs that are certified organic and come from cage-free hens.
To amp up the flavor of the frittata even more, I added some of my favorite flavorful fresh veggies and incorporated black beans and whole grain rice into the dish to make it taste a little heartier since it was supposed to feed me and two hungry guys!
This Frittata is packed with vegetables, delicious and quite filling!
- 6 Pete & Gerry’s organic eggs
- 1/2 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
- 1/2 cup brown rice
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
- 1/2 tomato, diced
- 1/2 large bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil
- Optional toppings: Avocado slices, pico de gallo, salsa, plain Greek yogurt
- Whisk eggs together in a large bowl. Add black beans through garlic salt.
- In a large skillet, heat butter (or olive oil) on low to medium heat. Pour in egg mixture.
- Cook on low to medium heat until eggs begin to set (approximately 15 minutes.)
- Reduce heat to low and cover with a lid until the top of the frittata fully sets.
- Slice immediately and serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!

We topped the frittata with avocado and thought it was fabulous! Next time I’ll also try serving it with pico de gallo and a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt.
If you decide to give this recipe a go, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did in our house!
