Bacon and Cheese Frittata

Yum
Did you know that what you eat at breakfast says a lot about your personality?

Buzz Feed has the complete low down about breakfast foods.
For example, if you are a...

breakfast burrito eater = you are a trendsetter

cereal eater = you have inner magnetism that no-one can resist

cinnamon roll eater = lovable and maybe sticky too :)

donut eater = you like to keep it real

breakfast sandwich eater = you have great taste and knowledge

Who makes up this stuff?
The list goes on and on and I have to say is actually pretty funny.
You know you are wondering about what your typical breakfast says about you!  Make sure to check out the whole low down at Buzz Feed.

Anyhow, I have a breakfast recipe that will surely say you are a winner at life!

breakfast frittata eater = winner

This is a bacon cheese frittata that is so quick and delicious!  No crust (which is why it is a frittata and not a quiche) so it is low in carbs and perfect for working on that bikini body :)...
well maybe that 1 piece bathing suit?  And you know it must be good because I was sooo distracted by the cheesy goodness that I spelled frittata wrong!  Oooops!!!  :)  Regardless, it is great for brunch!

Ingredients:
6 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 green onion, chopped
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese (that's 1/2 a block of cheddar cheese)
crumbled, cooked bacon (I used bacon bits to shorten up a step)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a pie pan.  In a medium bowl, whisk together beaten eggs, milk, chopped green onion, melted butter, salt and pepper until well blended.  Pour into pie pan.  Sprinkle bacon bits and cheese over top.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until set.


My sister shared this and I just love how easy it is and how good it tastes.



I love breakfast foods and this one is perfect for a brunch too!
Make sure to save those egg shells.  Lots of ideas in a previous post called "Eggs"ellent Ideas.
Check out what your breakfast eating habits say about you, but know this for sure...eating a bacon and cheese frittata makes you a winner...at least in my eyes! :)

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
