As you all know, breakfast is my favorite meal! Every morning as I sit down to breakfast, I think to myself why is this my favorite meal? I can’t tell you why I love breakast as much as I do, but I literally savor every bite. Maybe it has to do with the simple delicious flavors that eggs, veggies, bacon, sausage all bring to the table
About a month ago my mom hosted a brunch and she made a breakfast Frittata that wowed me. It even passed on the nutritious part. My mom used tons of veggies and when I asked her if there was milk, butter or cheese, she said no and I was shocked. There was so much flavor and it came from healthy ingredients.
My mom quickly told me the ingredients without having to look at her recipe. It was easy to remember and I couldn’t wait to make it! I love using recipes that involve minimal ingredients and I was excited to share it with you guys.
SO last week I whipped up her frittata, but I made a few small changes due to limited ingredients in my fridge (I secretly had to make this recipe my own!)
My Mom’s 4-ingredient Veggie Frittata
9 Eggs + 1/4 cup egg whites (or 10 eggs)
1/2 bag of fresh Spinach (chopped)
7-8 button mushrooms (chopped)
1 small red bell pepper (diced)
In a medium size mixing bowl, mix eggs thoroughly. Chop all the veggies. Spray a 13X9 baking dish and add in the chopped veggies.
Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and use a spoon to make sure all the veggies are evenly covered. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.
Cut into giant squares, sprinkle with salt & pepper, and Enjoy!
The funny thing about this recipe is that it satisfied people of all ages (Ava loved it, Marc loved it, and my dad was a fan), it can feed 4 people for breakfast, and it only costs about $5 to make! WiN!!
