Cheese Frittata Recipe

Bellwether Farm's rustic veggie frittata is spectacular baked in a cast-iron pan. Every home cook has at least one well-seasoned skillet they couldn’t imagine cooking without. This is the pan to use for this delicious recipe. Cast iron is highly valued for its many cooking properties; in this case, the pan’s heat is evenly distributed, making it ideal for baking this frittata into its full rustic glory. Serves 8

2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large Spanish onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 small summer squash sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 small zucchini, sliced 1/4-inch thick
