Rocket Fuel: Farro Egg Cakes
These handheld frittatas follow the rules of post-training nutrition, and there is no reason why they can’t serve as a quick breakfast or lunch option.
These egg cakes/handheld frittatas follow the rules of post-training nutrition, namely teaming up carbs and protein. You can enjoy them straight from the fridge or cooler, at room temperature, or heated for about 30 seconds in the microwave. And there is no reason why these can’t serve as a quick breakfast or lunch option.
Baked eggs are tantamount to nature’s version of cement, which is why I always break out my trusty silicone muffin tray so I don’t have to chisel out the egg cakes once they’re cooked. Farro is a so-called ancient grain that can be found at an increasing number of natural food stores and megamarts.
- Swap out farro for wheat berries, freekeh, spelt, or for gluten-free, millet or sorghum
- Make ’em dairy-free by using nondairy plain milk and replace Parmesan with nutritional yeast
- Stir in chopped Swiss chard instead of spinach
- Add some chopped cooked bacon
