My Fritatta Love Affair Continues With Basil, Sun-dried Tomatoes & Feta cheese

For years frittata has been one of my absolute favorite egg dishes. I love eggs! They are one of the most versatile ingredients that can completely transform any dish. They are also a staple in almost every cuisine world wide. I just don't get people who don't get eggs. This fritatta uses chewy sun dried tomatoes, creamy feta cheese, sweet caramelized onions and punchy fresh basil. A gorgeous way to start off your day. You can prep everything the night before if you don't have a lot of time in the am. 
eggs (4-5 for 2 people) - whisked
crumbled feta cheese
fresh basil - thinly sliced 
sun dried tomatoes - thinly sliced 
Spanish onion - thinly sliced & caramelized 
s & p

COOK:  Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Then start off by heating a tbs of olive oil and sautéed onion on medium - low heat until golden (about 20 mins). While onions are cooking thinly slice the rest of the ingredients. Whisk eggs and add everything together. Continue whisking while adding the onions. Add a pinch of s & p. Add some butter to your "onion pan" and heat again on medium high before adding egg mixture. Cook on the stove for 2 mins. Add some more crumbled feta on top before baking in the oven. Bake until slightly golden (about 10 mins). 
SERVE: with toast!
