Saturday Morning Frittata

Today was the first Saturday in a long time that we could sleep in, drink our coffee and make breakfast. I love these times- it's the perfect way to end one week and recharge for the next.

My garden is full of zucchini and tomatoes and I wanted to put them to good use. My problem is that Aaron do not really like either. A frittata is the perfect solution. It is an easy way to use up whatever is in your refrigerator and an easy way to "hide" vegetables. Aaron loved today's frittata even with the zucchini. To make this feed more people you can add more eggs. Also you could make this with or with out some type of meat. Kielbasa, turkey bacon or any type of breakfast sausage would be great in this. I have also made this using spinach and peppers, so experiment and use what you have on hand. Enjoy!
