Breakfast Frittata

frittata 2Breakfast – one of the biggest challenges for healthy eating. If it were up to me, the modern work day would start around 11am, just enough time to got to a gym class, take a nice long shower, and make a delicious and nutritious meal for what is known as the most important meal of the day.

As that is not the case (unless you’re Richard Branson, probably), then you need to be as prepared as a Girl Scout for a quick but protein fueled meal and what better way to be prepared but to make it ahead of time.

Enter the frittata. I’m not quite sure why I have never made one before, quiches are totally up my alley, but a frittata always seemed a bit more daunting — until now.

Breakfast Frittata

For your ingredients:

  • 12 Large Eggs
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey Breast
  • 3 cups Spinach
  • 2 cups White Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup Light Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk
  • Hot Sauce of Choice, my preference is Crystal
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Garlic Salt
  • Oil for Cooking

Total Prep Time: 10 Minutes // Total Cooking Time: 40-50 Minutes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and start with the spinach on the stovetop. Cook it in a pan with oil and garlic salt to taste until it’s wilted and then put on a plate with a paper towel to soak up as much moisture as you can. Next cook the mushrooms and onions in the same pan as the spinach and season again with the garlic salt to taste. Add the cooked mushrooms and onions to the same plate holding the spinach.
  2. Time for turkey! Take your ground turkey and brown it on the stovetop with about 7 dashes of hot sauce and about 7 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce. Cook until browned then let drain on a second plate with a paper towel.
  3. With your eggs, crack them and then whisk very well in a big bowl. Add the milk and the cheese as well as salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste (please don’t actually taste the raw eggs). Add a dash of hot sauce for each egg to give it a little extra kick.
  4. To bake, prep the pie pan with a nonstick cooking spray and pour your egg mixture in first, then add your ground beef, and lastly your vegetables. A few more dashes of hot sauce on top and it’s in the oven for 40-50 minutes, or until firm at the center. The trick is to jiggle the pie pan every once in a while to see where you’re at!


That’s it! Super easy and now I have breakfast for the week!

Cheers! Happy Sunday!
