Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. But let’s face it, how many of us skip the most important of the day? During a busy morning, it’s easy to let breakfast fall low in your list of priorities, but taking just a few minutes to have something to eat can really make a difference to your day. If I know that I have a lot to do the next few days, I think of a earthy breakfast packed with protein and vitamins that I can eat on the go. Who would of thought of a frittata? Well I did. A hearty baked spicy sausage & veggies frittata is my all time favourite.
Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche, enriched with additional ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables or pasta. The word frittata is Italian and roughly translates to “fried”. (quoted from wikipedia)
In this recipe, I used mashed sweet potato as a ”crust”, so I guess you could call this a quiche. Whatever pleases you.
The great thing about frittatas is that you can add pretty much anything to them. It’s a great meal to put together when you have a bunch of leftovers or ingredients that are going to go bad in a few days. I’ve tried this Tomato, Aragula and Goat Cheese Frittata recipe by Williams Sonoma when I wanted to eat light and this Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Frittata by Mealime. There’s no real ”general” recipe of a frittata, which is great because you can’t really mess up a frittata.
I bake frittatas once every two weeks or so and I plan it when I do my groceries. I know that whatever meat and veggies I might not be able to eat before they go bad can be added to my frittata. I’ll be honest, I usually stick to my hearty baked spicy sausage & veggies frittata dish, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be experimental.
