Fresh egg recipes for Mother’s Day brunch


She has her own chicken farm, and she’s giving us a glimpse inside!

In our kitchen today, Eat Drink Indy’s Jolene Ketzenberger shares how to use backyard eggs to make fresh egg dishes for Mother’s Day brunch!


Serves 6

6 six eggs

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup cheese

2 cups total of vegetables and/or meat (such as onions, tomatoes, potatoes, ham)

Additional salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400° degrees. 

2. Whisk the eggs, heavy cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. In a large cast iron skillet, heat olive oil and sauté vegetables until tender; add ham or other cooked meat (such as browned sausage or ground beef). Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Spread the vegetables and meat into an even layer, flattening with a spatula. Sprinkle the cheese on top and let it just start to melt.

5. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and cheese. Tilt the pan to make sure the eggs settle evenly over all the vegetables. Cook for a minute or two until the eggs at the edges of the pan begin to set.

6. Put the pan in the oven and bake until the eggs are set, 8 to 10 minutes. To check, cut a small slit in the center of the frittata. If raw eggs run into the cut, bake for another few minutes; if the eggs are set, remove frittata from the oven. For a browned, crispy top, place frittata under the broiler for a minute or two at the end of cooking.

7. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then slice into wedges and serve.
