WHAT: A no-fuss frittata using spring's earthy gems. 

HOW: Sauté your garlic, morels, and fiddleheads, pour in your eggs and cheese, let sit for a few minutes, and broil. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: This is the kind of recipe we love having in our back pocket; it's perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack, whether it's hot, warm, or cold. As the season changes, you can substitute your favorite produce for the fiddleheads and morels -- for now, we'll eat as much of this as we can.
