So now that I'm the frittata queen, or princess...whatever. Now that I can make a good frittata, *giggle* I've been experimenting by putting all kinds of things in them as you can clearly see and they have been coming out so good. You can pretty much put anything you want into these things and they come out good. This is definitely my favorite lunch and even Ken has been liking them. 


  1. I would have to skip the Brussels sprouts!

  2. Chicken for the win, I'd even throw the mushrooms in haha

  3. Yeah, the Brussels sprouts is so wrong.

  14. You can't beat a Frittata and you can amend them to suit so many different vegetables, meats etc.
