On our weekends at home we like to celebrate with a big breakfast, whether it be The All American, quiche, tacos, waffles or breakfast casserole. My personal all time favorite breakfast is scrambled egg whites, baked bacon, toast and hash browns. Typically I see this type of breakfast MAYBE once a month just because that is a lot of food preparation and a lot to eat. Oh yea and I can not forget my morning coffee from my keurig. In fact I go thru about 2 cups every morning.
I decided to incorporate the egg beaters in a sausage and potato frittata dish. Not only do we enjoy our nice breakfasts meals on the weekend but we also enjoy breakfast for dinner every once in a while. Actually, it’s been real common for us to cook it during the week at night just because we have all the ingredients. This frittata is basically a one pot dish and that makes clean up super easy. I forgot to mention that this recipe also takes less than 30 minutes to make. In our household these days we need any type of meal or dish that takes less than one hour. We like to eat our dinner when Olivia eats her table food which is right after 6 o’clock. I pick her up from daycare and get home around 4:45 so that doesn’t leave much time to play and make dinner. Our house is also a huge mess right now but I will touch on that subject sometime this next week. Stay tuned….. for some big news from The Wieds!
