Eggs are one of my favorite foods, and I'm not just saying that. I mean, think about it…. they taste so good, they're filling, they're full of protein, and they're so healthy. I can hardly function without my morning breakfast of eggs and toast. Of course, sometimes I love making something “breakfast-y” for dinner too…. or even a weekend brunch, especially when we have a lot of extra eggs on hand. A Cheesy Baked Frittata is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dinner and incorporates fresh veggies like onion, peppers, and tomatoes.
Harvest time is the perfect time to make this particular frittata. It's packed full of flavor with fresh chopped peppers and tomatoes. Queso Fresco also adds quite the cheesy punch.
I normally keep a weekly menu on the fridge, but sometimes we're just not feelin' what I'd planned at the start of the week. You know how it goes. Either it doesn't sound good, or we're feeling a little lazy. On weeknights when we're just not sure what to eat for dinner, eggs usually make the cut. Whether we make a breakfast bake, breakfast for dinner, or egg sandwiches, they're just so versatile and easy.
Below you'll find a printable recipe for this Cheesy Baked Frittata. Enjoy!
