Frittata with veggies, cheese, and sausage (dairy-free option)

on

Sometimes I’m lazy and I don’t feel like cooking my breakfast in the morning. I just feel like eating… This is why I always like to have prepared food in the house, that I can just heat in the microwave and have it ready to eat in under 2 minutes. Come on, admit it, You know you feel the same way! This is the perfect recipe for those kind of days where you’re tired and not in a cooking mood. You can make this recipe and then have 8 breakfasts prepared for you!

This frittata is totally delicious. When my brother had a piece for breakfast this morning he said “This is sooo good! I feel like I am eating a gourmet meal at a hotel!” Those were his exact words…No exaggeration. He wanted to know the origin of the dish for some reason. He was convinced it was a Mexican or Spanish dish. To his and my surprise, when I searched it up on the internet I discovered its an Italian dish. Who knew? Alright I’ll get to the point. Just make this dish. You won’t regret it for two reasons: 1. You’ll have more than a week’s “gourmet” breakfasts prepared for you! Or if your feeding a family you’ll have about 1-2 days of breakfast waiting in the fridge for you guys. (doesn’t that sound amazing!…) 2. It’s freak’n delicious people! Just ask my brother:) Now here’s the recipe you’ve all been waiting for!
