Am I the only one around here who wakes up about to eat her arm off? My eyes open and I immediately think “Must. Have. Food.” Maybe that’s why breakfast is my favorite meal of the day – I love a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge breakfast. All of you sad people out there who don’t eat breakfast – I just can’t understand you. You make no sense to me. Maybe you should seek professional counseling – or make this Frittata. That might fix it.
I spend the majority of my meal planning time trying to decide on breakfast. I spend a majority of my Pinterest time pinning breakfast recipes…and I even have a board totally dedicated to oatmeal. I’m serious about breakfast – it is not a laughing matter. It IS the most important meal of the day…even if there are likely 1.5 million studies about how eating breakfast can kill you slowly. Everyone is a critic.
My love for breakfast might be why I’m tickled with this new eBook from Red and Honey – The Breakfast Revolution. A cookbook dedicated totally to breakfast? Sign me up, buttercup! It’s full of yummy goodness that will make me hop right out of bed in the morning and get cooking…okay, so maybe not hop. Maybe limp out of bed – or roll out of bed. I need a coffee maker on my side of the bed. Or a fork lift. Speaking of forks lifting….
Listen to some of these beauties: Cinnamon Bun Muffins, Bacon-Wrapped Baked Eggs (goodness, you should buy the book for that recipe alone! BACON!!!!), Maple Breakfast Custard, and Coconut Oil Frothy Coffee. I’m hungry. Is anyone else hungry now? It’s that darn bacon calling me again.
NOTE: I am not an affiliate with The Breakfast Revolution – I just want to promote it because I can. So take THAT, FTC.
Beth graciously said I could share Southwestern Frittata with you all – one of the 40+ recipes you’ll find in her book. I was tickled with that choice considering I love southwestern food, and eggs, and meat, and well…since I just love food in general.
I did a little tweaking, based on what I had. Because I have this disease that sometimes causes me not to follow recipes. Maybe that’s also the same disease that causes me to burn things in the oven.
This recipe is super easy to throw together on a Saturday morning. I made sure my meat was already thawed, so I just got up and browned it and mixed the other stuff in it – voila! Breakfast is served. After you bake it, of course. Don’t eat raw eggs mixed with browned meat – unless you’re cool with that, then totally go ahead. Me –> not cool with that. You can also chop your veggies the night before if you’re feeling extra productive.
In retrospect, I do wish I’d done one thing differently. I wish I had used sausage instead of hamburger – because I have this thing for sausage with eggs. Actually, I just have this thing for food.
If you’re in a breakfast rut, you might want to give a look-see to The Breakfast Revolution – it’ll pull you out of your rut and set you on the right track…with bacon. Because the right track in life should always include bacon. I think I read that in the Constitution somewhere.
