“Herb Frittata”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t know about you but here in the Rackley household, we tend to be a little uncreative when it comes to breakfast time. I personally like to start out the day with something that leaves me feeling good, you know like something healthy and contains quite a bit of protein. Most days, that leaves us with the slim option of eggs & toast or oatmeal with fruit & almond butter. Don’t get me wrong, we love pancakes, waffles, muffins, and tarts too- but those are reserved for the special occasions.

One morning I had had enough of the same ol’ breakfast menu and went searching in the fridge for something to spark my interest. We still had a lot of eggs and plenty of left over veggies that needed to be used up, so I began to chop, dice, slice and sauté. 

My first attempt included a crust, which if you don’t mind me saying..was pretty delicious. But after reducing the amount of calories and coming up with something a bit more healthy, considering my mission in life, I reconsidered the crust that used 10 Tbsp of butter (GASP!).
