A few weeks ago, Jack stopped by the farmstead and came home with a small haul of vegetables. As he walked in the house with bags of produce, he pulled out this bouquet of flowering dill and handed it to me. “I thought you would think this was pretty,” he said as my heart completely melted. He’s not usually one for on-the-fly romantic gestures, and I’m not the kind of girl that loves to be showered with roses and gifts… but, as you know, I LOVE a pretty vegetable so I was especially smitten by this herbaceous gesture.
When you’ve been together as long as we have, it’s the little moments, not fancy things, that are the most special. And speaking of being together for a long time – tomorrow is our wedding anniversary :). I’m realizing as I type this that I could have chosen a more romantic recipe to post for the occasion, but hey, this is real life and it’s not always fancy.
I love dill and eggs together so that’s how this recipe started. I thought these mini frittatas would be a great make-ahead breakfast, and in fact they are. They keep well in the fridge for a few days and are a great way to start the day if you like an eggy protein breakfast like I often do.
Of course, these vegetables can be mixed up and swapped out seasonally (I love a sweet potato frittata later in the fall), but these are super delicious with tomatoes, scallions, kale, a touch of dijon mustard, and of course fresh dill.
Oh, and you don’t actually need flowering dill to make the recipe, just regular fresh dill is fine!
