My hubs likes eggs for breakfast. But I don’t always love making him eggs, especially when I am trying to get out the door for 5:30am boot-camp. So to keep the hubs happy, and to make my life a little easier, I’ve begun making this easy breakfast frittata on Sunday afternoon or evening. By making this ahead of time, on a day when there is no pressure to get out the door, I can rest easy in the morning knowing all he has to do is slice a piece and warm it up. There are about a million combinations of meats, veggies, cheeses, and seasonings that could be added to this same basic recipe. Once you understand the “formula” for a frittata, you can mix it up to suite your family’s preferences. Here is the basic recipe for my favorite hassle-free, protein-packed, easy breakfast frittata.

Servings: slices
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. In a skillet, brown bacon or breakfast sausage. Drain, crumble, and set aside in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Add butter to the same pan. Add onion and sautee over medium heat until soft and translucent. Add garlic. Stir for 1 min. Add greens and sautee until soft and wilted. Kale and Swiss chard will take a little longer than spinach.
  3. Add the onion/greens mixture to the meat. Crack the eggs in the same bowl. Add milk, cheese, and pepper. Mix well with a whisk or a fork. Be sure the eggs are nice and scrambled.
  4. Grease a pie plate. Pour the egg mixture into the greased plate. Set the pie plate on a cookie sheet to catch any drips or spills. Bake the frittata for 35-45 minutes or until the center is fully set and the top is nicely browned.
  5. Allow the frittata to cool for 10 minutes before slicing. Can be stored in the refrigerator for a week for super easy breakfasts (or lunches!)
