Breakfast Frittata

5 stars from 1 rating of Breakfast Frittata

There are so many options to items that you can add when it comes to making this Frittata. It can be made dietary and diabetic friendly as well if you add items that have been chosen for your specific dietary meal plan. The difference between this meal and the Quiche is that a Quiche is often made with a custard base of heavy cream or half and half and this is not rendering this particular dish a little more healthy. You can add items you want or substitute others. Shrimp, turkey sausage or even chicken can be a flavorful choice instead of the Pork sausage I used. You can reduce fat by omitting the cheese and using more egg whites then whole eggs or possibly even use egg beaters. Other things that can be added could be green onions, black olives, or diced tomatoes. Use your taste buds and creativity for what you like to make this dish not only yours but also enjoyable for you and your family.
