Lamb Frittata With Blackberry Yogurt

Ludwig prefers frittatas to quiches, maybe because quiche was practically all people talked about in the 80’s. Just for that, he never made quiche until the popular furor was dead and gone. He tends to be a contrarian. Check that, he is always contrary.
Lamb is Maestro’s favorite protein. He also loves berries and thinks they go well together. I dare not ever contradict him, but in this case, I whole-heartedly agree with him.

Drop the quiche! Lamb, eggs, sage and veggies in an easier to make form.
