Oyster Mushroom and Spring Onion Frittata
This is a very simple, easily customized dish. The recipe is special to me because it is the dish that got me over my “mushroom hump.” I used to really hate mushrooms, but after talking with the folks at River Valley Ranch, I now enjoy this dish almost daily for breakfast. The people at River Valley have been extremely helpful in suggesting simple and delicious ways to use their mushrooms. This recipe can easily be expanded to make a larger, fancier frittata. —Tammy Hsu, customer
