One Pan Breakfast

Everyone is always looking for the one-pot meal. The frittata can be more than just breakfast, including brunch and lunch. Fill it with fresh veggies and good eggs like my recipe below and you'll have a powerful one-pan breakfast. A frittata is also the perfect way to repurpose leftovers like roasted potatoes; or spring greens like chives and asparagus.

safety tip: The pan will be hot when taken out of the oven. Place a ktchen towel on the handle as a reminder to prevent burning yourself when dishing up.
