This morning Eliana and I made frittatas together, using this recipe as our baseline. We used our extra-large muffin pan (think Otis Spunkmeyer size muffins) and doubled the recipe. We made 3 frittatas for us and 3 frittatas for her. She enjoyed participating in the process, putting the mix-ins for hers herself. We added in chicken and cheese today.
Here's what was great about it...
- She got to help and be a part of the process.
- One dish, one baking time, one meal.
- We didn't have to sacrifice taste and she didn't have to sacrifice allergic reaction.
- We loved it!
- She loved it!
Cooking when you have a dairy free kid can be tricky, but there's no reason you can't figure out ways around it without cooking 2 meals each night.
