Cheese & Parsley Frittata

Jump To Recipe
It’s the first day of Ramadan. And while people make Atayef, Tashreeb or Lentin Soup…making this frittata for our suhoor has become a family tradition. I love having eggs for suhoor…any other type of breakfast or brunch food…like avocado toast or grilled cheese sandwiches…last year I had a smoothie bowl almost every night.
What I love about this frittata is that you can have it on it’s own with some hot sauce, or with bread for something more filling….but use a light bread like pita or tortilla.
If you’re eggs are small, use a couple more. Also feel free to change up the cheese to whatever you have on hand. Also the herbs…maybe some chopped coriander or basil instead of the parsley.
I couldn’t take a proper picture of the frittata…as it’s Ramadan I made it at night, so the lighting isn’t great for photos. I’m using a stock photo…it looks similar though ?
