Flower Frittata

lauren liess' flower frittata
The perfect brunch offering, this beautiful frittata is filled with meat and vegetables and topped with delicate edible flowers and served with a creamy dressing. Kids love “decorating” this dish.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes, Cook Time: 20 Minutes


  • 18 eggs
  • 3/4 onion diced
  • 1 lb ground turkey or minced sausage
  • 4-5 garlic cloves minced
  • 3/4 cup shredded greens (spinach or cabbage)
  • 1/2 cup kale finely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup parsley chopped
  • 1/4 cup basil chopped
  • 1/4 cup chives chopped, with a few set aside for the "bouquet"
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese we prefer gruyere
  • (optional) herbal hydrosol we used lemon thyme
  • herbs & flowers for the "bouquet" fresh violets, Italian parsley, chive bulbs, basil etc.
Creamy Dressing
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup skim milk to desired consistency
  • 2-3 garlic bulbs minced
  • fresh dill chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Sauté onion on medium heat. Add in ground turkey or sausage and continue to cook.
  • Add in garlic, shredded greens or cabbage, chopped kale, and chives and sauté until everything is cooked.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lightly coat a casserole dish in olive oil.
  • Whip 18 eggs in a bowl and pour it into the casserole dish and spread in sautéed mixture.
  • Add fresh diced tomatoes, chopped basil, parsley, chives, and cheese.
  • Add LOTS of salt and pepper.
  • Pop it in the oven on 375 for twenty minutes.
  • Once out of the oven, cut around the sides so it doesn't stick.
  • Do the "double flip," by putting a cutting board on top of the dish and flip upside down. Then flip it back over right side up on a separate cutting board!
  • Arrange a "bouquet" of herbs + flowers on top.
  • Carefully slide it onto a baking sheet and put back in the oven for a few minutes to cook the bouquet into the top of the frittata.
  • Pull it out again and do the “double flip” again, using a serving platter or pretty cutting board for the landing spot for the final flip.
  • Grate a little bit of cheese on top and serve with a dollop of the creamy dressing on the side.

Creamy Dressing

  • Mix all ingredients together, adding milk in slowly until you achieve your desired consistency.
