Love This So Much I'm Posting It Twice

So I've posted Frittata before, it was actually the first post I ever did! But that was a long time ago when only my mom checked my blog :) So I'm posting it again because everytime I make it I'm just reminded how incredibly, INCREDIBLY easy this is. I also love it because its meat-free but still protein packed (my favorite), you can add whatever veggie you like or have on hand, you can use it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and all you have to do is call this "egg pizza" to get your kids to gobble it up.

Preheat your oven to 350 and wait for it to preheat before you start cooking. Simply saute your chosen veggies (I did cherry tomatoes and chopped spinach) in a tablespoon of butter (to coat the pan and help keep it non-stick) in a non-stick, oven proof skillet.

Whisk 6 eggs in a bowl with 1/4 cup milk. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Turn heat off under veggies and add the egg mixture. I topped with some freshly grated parm but any cheese you have or like works.

Stick the skillet straight into the oven. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until it sets. Then broil on high for 2-3 minutes.

Take it out and let it settle for a minute...

Before you cut it like pizza and serve it up!
A fun twist on this is "Green Chile Frittata"... Follow the steps above but saute chopped red pepper, garlic and onion. Add a cup of green salsa, half a lime, shredded cheddar, a cup of milk and 2 cups of crushed tortilla chips to 12 eggs, then bake for about 25 minutes (measurements for a 12 inch skillet size!) Serve with salsa!!
