Yess… It’s that time of the week, leftover-time!
Some call it a crustless quiche … I call a quiche a crust-full frittata.
I love me some Frittata, the good kind I might add. The perfect frittata is not dry, bland or sponge-like but creamy and full of veggies
This go-to recipe has saved me on more late-night hungry weeknights than I can count. As long as you have some vegetables and potatoes or maybe a little cheese or meat to throw in an oven dish you can whip up a frittata in about 20 minutes.
It is the ideal clean-out-the-fridge weeknight dinner recipe. Or you can use it as a delicious sandwich or taco filling for a nutritious but oh so easy lunch. Heck, I even rely on frittatas to serve me as a quick and tasty breakfast-fix, especially on those busy mornings.
I hope you’ll love this recipe as much as I do. Get creative with it and make it your own!
