Make breakfast count with this vegetable frittata. You will get some of your daily vegetables and protein in before you get out the door! It's made with artichokes, roasted peppers, ricotta cheese, and an egg.
I love brunch - you know the nice leisurely, late morning breakfasts that are pleasing in oooh so many ways. That idealist scenario just doesn't happen for me on most days - imagine that!
I know I should eat breakfast, but it is seriously so much easier to skip it when I don't have time - oops. I also get so bored with the same old muffin, toast or whatever pops out of my kitchen in the morning.
Enter the breakfast sandwich maker. There are many types of quickie breakfast gadgets on the market, but the one I use in this recipe is made by Hamilton Beach. You can just mix up the ingredients and toss it in a small frying pan or cast iron skillet too. The breakfast sandwich maker does make it even easier...seriously!
However you choose to make this vegetable frittata, you will have an amazing, tasty breakfast that you can easily get done in 5 minutes or less. How cool is that!
You may also to make one up for lunch or a quick pick-me-up during the day. The frittata is great paired with a small salad.
