recipe: ham, mozzarella & vegetable frittata

On the weekends, my favorite meal of the day is breakfast. If I’m being honest, I think I spend more time thinking about new ways to creatively enhance my at-home breakfast (read: BRUNCH) experience than I do any other weekend activity. Bacon? Yes, please. Eggs? Toast? French toast? Waffles? Yes, yes, yes and YES please!

Because I love all things weekend-breakfast, I figured it was time I started sharing some of my favorites here on the site. Today’s recipe is one of the easiest egg dishes you could ever make, and it’s my go-to for when I’m tired of the traditional omelette or scrambled eggs routine. I usually include whatever I currently have sitting in my fridge, because no one (and I mean NO ONE) likes early morning grocery store runs.

My big tip here is to keep your flavors simple. This isn’t a fancy dish so don’t try to make it one!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
