{Recipe ReDux} Pepper, Spinach & Swiss Frittata

Disclosure: I received free samples of Breton Gluten Free Original with Flax and Breton Gluten Free Herb and Garlic from Dare Foods Incorporated mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Dare Foods Incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

To honor Celiac Disease Awareness Month, Recipe ReDux teamed up with Dare Foods to create delicious gluten-free recipes. Before participating in this contest, I wasn't very familiar with gluten-free foods. So, when I received samples of Breton's new line of gluten-free crackers, I was amazed at the quality of taste! The crackers come in 2 varieties- Original with Flax and Herb & Garlic, both equally delicious. The crackers are made with wholesome ingredients like, arrowroot flour and green lentil flour, and are certified gluten free by the Canadian Celiac Association's Gluten Free Certification Program.  

This recipe is entirely gluten-free and is an easy-to-make main course for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I used spinach and peppers in my frittata, but you can use any of your favorite vegetables! Heck, substitute the swiss for your favorite cheese. Frittata recipes are perfect for combining your favorite foods into one big dish. Dig in!
