What to make for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving? I've got you covered with the Frittata. This recipe uses only one pan because you've done enough dishes this week.

Whether you are feeding overnight guests or just slopping around in elastic banded pants, consider this healthy and simple breakfast.

Consider Some Delicious Ingredients:

  • Bacon. Gets its own category - buy the best bacon you can afford.

  • Leftover ham, turkey, duck, roast, whatever your protein of choice.

  • Potatoes, sweet potatoes, cubed squash, or other starchy veggie.

  • Broccoli, grape tomatoes, fresh spinach, onion, or other available veggie.

  • Tasty cheese such as cheddar, swiss, gruyere, or parmesan.

  • Seasonings such as salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders. Fresh herbs too.

  • Eggs - Typically two per person.

How to Make a Frittata:

  1. Start out by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Locate an oven safe skillet, preferably cast iron if you have it.

  3. Preheat this pan on med-high while you chop a couple pieces of bacon.

  4. Add bacon to your hot skillet and cook until semi-crisp. (If you omit bacon, add a tablespoon of avocado or olive oil to sauté with your veggies.)

  5. While the bacon is cooking, chop your desired meats and veggies.

  6. Add these meats and veggies to the skillet. Bacon is your cooking fat so don't drain it from the pan.

  7. Once everything is cooked through and combined, add your lightly whisked eggs and top with cheese.

  8. Pop that skillet into the oven.

  9. Bake for around 20 mins, but don't overcook as overdone eggs are no bueno.

Thoughts and Tips:

  • For a vegetarian option, just omit the meats.

  • For a vegan option you probably need a different blog.

  • Top with fresh delicate herbs like parsley, basil, or thyme and impress your guests.

  • Kick it up with avocado, cilantro, salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream.

  • Use herbed soft cheese like Boursin, or an herbed goat cheese.

  • For something incredibly light use egg whites, turkey bacon, spinach, and tomatoes.

  • Don't skip the salt. Read the other articles if you are unsure why.

  • This recipe is great for meal prepping too as it reheats nicely.

  • Use up your leftover everything and make this on the weekend before grocery shopping day. Call it "everything but the kitchen sink" frittata.

I hope you enjoy.
