Something about breakfast just doesn’t sit right with me (and by breakfast I mean the time slot). The thought of food directly after I wake up is not appealing to me… which is a low down dirty shame because breakfast foods are among the best (and easiest).
A couple times a week I will make myself an omelette or scrambled eggs for dinner (or snack), but not having the ability to eat some toast with eggs has been killing me. So I went digging deep through the internet to find myself a new breakfast solution for the remainder of this diet and landed on a frittata somewhere. Looked easy and cheap so I was sold!
It really doesn’t get any easier… whisk eggs together, add everything else, and pour it in the pan. Once it settles a bit, toss it in the oven and finish it off… 15-20 minutes of “work” that yields a ton of quality breakfast.
My favorite part: you really shouldn’t have to buy anything for this besides eggs. Just dig into whatever drawer you keep all those halves of peppers, onions, spinach, and packages of sausage or bacon.
Chop up whatever you find, toss it into the eggs and enjoy 20 minutes later!
Frittata, the lazy man’s omelette. Considering how many things taste good with eggs, the creative possibilities are endless!
Preheat oven to broil setting.
Mix together eggs in a medium bowl.
Heat a 12 inch non-stick saute pan over medium high heat. Add butter to pan and melt, then add onions and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the eggs and add the peppers and sausage... mix everything well. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the top is starting to set. Sprinkle cheese evenly over top and put in oven to broil for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the top has set and cheese has melted.
Slice and serve!
