The Perfect Birthday Breakfast

We’re almost to my birthday and I’m still celebrating! And I’m making a birthday breakfast. My “kitchen sink” frittata is SO easy to make, it won’t take long for you to be back in bed, enjoying this yummy breakfast you made yourself!

The frittata is one of my favorite breakfasts to whip up for a couple of reasons. First, it’s SUPER easy to throw together because you can just use the ingredients you have in the fridge. And second, it’s low carb! I’m going hard with the low-carb thing right now (not to be confused with NO carbs, because BIRTHDAYS!) so having food I enjoy is a big help!

So, you always stick with 8 eggs + a splash of cream, but the rest is up to you. I’ll throw in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, spinach or whatever leftover veggies I have in the fridge that are about to expire. Then I’ll add whatever meat I have in the fridge. In this case it was sausage! But you can add turkey, chicken or bacon! Then comes the cheese. I used cheddar this time but you can add whatever cheese you have on hand. One of my favorite combos is what I call a Cobb Frittata – blue cheese, chicken, bacon and spinach. YUM.

From there, just pop it in the oven at 425 and then you can pop back in bed until it’s ready, only takes about 20-30 minutes.

So for this I made my “kitchen sink” frittata and traded in my mimosa for lavender lemonade. The lavender lemonade is one of my favorites to make especially on a hot summer day, I did virgin’s this time but you can add some Tito’s for a yummy cocktail.
