Fresh Corn Frittata

Well Hello Good People of the World! I’m almost back. Was down for the count for several days with a knee clean-up surgery…just about cleaned my clock too. But hey hey, the corner is turned and here I am. Thank you Chris Hasty. So, here we go! Throwing a double fresh treat right atcha. I received my first Leggett Farm Organics CSA box last Wednesday, and this year I included a dozen farm fresh eggs each week. Straight from Ben’s chickens. Look at these beauties. With fresh corn quickly growing as high as an elephant’a eye, I made this corn and fresh egg frittata. Out of the skillet, on to the plate, and down the hatch. Leggett Farms fresh eggs IIBrunch Corn Frittata1 Tbs olive oil

Cook 4 to 5 minutes until eggs are set and golden on bottom.
Note that top of eggs will still be a bit runny.
Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese.
