If you're going to make a frittata, you better make it a sun-dried tomato frittata. I mean, that's what I always say anyway.
With the holidays quickly approaching, I don't think it's the worst idea to start thinking about meals that you can make ahead of time and/or meals that feel a lot of people. Lucky for you, this frittata is both of those things! You can easy make it the day before if you need to--though the whole recipe comes together in just 30 minutes--and it serves up to 8 people. Not bad, if you ask me.
WHY THIS SUN-DRIED TOMATO FRITTATA IS SO GOOD
- It's not only filled with sun-dried tomatoes, but with onion, garlic and feta cheese for tons of flavor
- The eggs are combined with heavy cream to make this SUPER creamy
- It's ready in under 30 minutes!
HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT FRITTATA
Whisk the eggs together, then add the cream. If you're a regular Almond Eater reader, you know that I try to opt for dairy free options when possible. I made this frittata twice--the first time with almond milk and then the second time with heavy cream--and the heavy cream version was SO much better. So, for this recipe, I'm recommending that you use heavy cream.
Once those are mixed, stir in the onion, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and arugula, then pour everything into an oven-safe skillet and sprinkle the cheese on top.
TIPS FOR CHOOSING QUALITY SUN-DRIED TOMATOES
There are a few things to take into consideration when choosing sun-dried tomatoes, but an obvious one is the color! California Sun Dry sun dried tomatoes are a bright red color and overall very vibrant looking, whereas other brands are darker and kind of dull looking. It's also important to note that they're tomatoes actually dry out in the sun for 7 to 10 days, which enhances their flavor.
CAN I USE DAIRY FREE MILK INSTEAD OF CREAM?
Yes, absolutely! Though I preferred the heavy cream version, you can use any sort of dairy free milk in this recipe.

I’d like to make this in a 9 x 13 pan- any suggestions? Thinking I should increase al the ingredients
Great question! I wouldn't double the whole recipe, because then you'd be using 24 eggs which is a lot. Try keeping it to 12 eggs, but then double the amount of heavy cream, sun-dried tomatoes, arugula, and feta cheese. Let me know how it turns out in case someone else wants to make this in a baking dish!
