Brunch Recipe: Easy Frittata

This is my new go-to. Since I discovered how easy it is to make a frittata for brunch (or breakfast, or lunch, or dinner), there is no reason to make anything else. The other fabulous thing about this recipe is that it is SO easy to customize for your guests!Easy brunch frittata recipe

A few weeks ago, I made brunch for a Thirty-One party I was hosting (Thirty-One is a new adventure for me. More on that in another post). I wasn’t sure of the audience’s food preference, so I was able to make 3 different frittatas in no time flat, and everyone had something they loved! The frittata is best accompanied by a fruit salad and a pastry of some sort, and is very easy to present. So, voila! You become the domestic goddess that conquers a delicious brunch party!

Easy brunch frittata recipe with different fillings

And I don’t want to give away ALL of my secrets, but this frittata is an amazing and easy way to get rid of leftovers. Simply chop them up and use them in the recipe where it calls for your filling. But the flavor possibilities are endless.

Here are some varieties I have made:

  • Maple sausage and cheddar
  • Potato and sausage
  • Leftover brisket and cheddar
  • Feta, tomato and spinach
  • 3 cheese
  • Leftover steak, mushrooms and provolone
