Frittatas are a fun way to liven up breakfast. Versatile and always delicious, you can create just about any combination and end up with a dish everyone loves.
Admittedly, an important factor in a frittata is the cheese. It’s critical actually. At least as far as I’m concerned. I’m sure there are those out there who would argue with me. But I feel the cheese really makes the flavor robust. And I do love flavor.
I try to avoid dairy, but I did eat my fair share of this. It’s on the low (ish) carb side and it was a quick, easy breakfast on a hectic morning. Plus, it made everyone happy. Can’t argue with that!
Feel free to play around with the type and amount of veggies. I simply used what I had on hand.
