This Fresh Basil and Tomato Frittata is a prime example of how tasty a simple recipe can be. Juicy tomatoes, sharp cheddar, and fresh basil are natural partners in this easy egg dish. Put it on the menu for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.

8 ounces Vermont sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
4 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup half-and-half
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 large tomato, diced
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss cheddar cheese with flour. Place the mixture in the bottom of an ungreased 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese over the top.

Combine eggs and half-and-half, add Worcestershire sauce, mix well, and pour over cheeses. Sprinkle tomato and basil over the egg mixture. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.

Why not grow your own tomatoes and basil for an extra tasty dish?
