I love hosting brunch but I hate the thought of slaving away in the kitchen once my guests arrive. Frittatas, then, are the perfect menu item when hosting brunch because they can feed a group of people, and you can do all your prep work in advance. Plus, leftovers (if there are any) heat up great the next day. Here’s a go-to frittata recipe that I have used time and time again when cooking for friends and family. It can easily feed about 6 to 8 people, and it’s a pretty simple dish to pull off, even if you’re not fully awake yet.
Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. We all know it, but it can be hard to fit in on busy weekday mornings, especially this time of year when it’s so dark outside. I like to plan ahead and get organized for the week on Sunday night. It means the difference between getting an actual breakfast during the week and scrounging through my purse for a granola bar, piece of chocolate (breath mint if I’m desperate!) mid-morning when my tummy is rumbling. This week, I’m adding a new smoothie into the mix (courtesy of Oh She Glows!) and pairing it with an old favorite muffin recipe I got from my mom.
