Frittata

I love frittatas because you can make so many kinds of them!!  Some of my favorite combos are spinach and potato frittatas (recipe below) and asparagus and swiss cheese frittatas, but really – you can use whatever you have in the fridge!

Today I had bacon, peas, onion, cheddar, and goats cheese.  Not my best combo, but not my worst either!

Frittatas are also great because they are so easy to make.  Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and pour it in a baking pan.

Once it’s baked – cut into pie slices and eat!
