Frittata

If you have ever made a quiche, this is very similar, but I think it is quicker and
easier. You can just about put anything you want in it. It makes a great dish to use up your leftovers from chicken to vegetables. You can even make different themes.

The key is you need a non-stick skillet at least 8" that will go from stove top into the oven.

This makes a great dish if you have company for a quick breakfast in the morning, or even a light brunch or lunch. It is a GREAT low carb dish! Your toddlers will love it! You can even pour this into mini-muffin pans and make little Frittata's, which make great appetizers.

You can use eggs or egg beaters whatever you prefer. This weekend we had leftover mushrooms, broccoli, cheese, tomatoes, and bacon from the cookout the day before. I chopped them all up the next morning...and made a Frittata :) So that is what I listed in this recipe.

I listed some suggestions below of ingredients to put in your Frittata. So, play around with it and have fun! The next time you think about throwing out that little bit of veggies or chicken...just make a Frittata.

I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
