We tend to get stuck in a breakfast rut fairly often in our home. It's so easy, what with waking up running with two small children. I've already changed 2-3 diapers by 7:30 in the morning, got myself and the kids dressed, gone to the bathroom, and tried to wake up enough to be functional during the day. And we're all typically starving upon waking up. The easy solution is to make toast with jam and a boiled egg for everyone to share.

I can make it fairly quickly and everyone, including myself, loves it. But sometimes you just want a little more for breakfast than toast. So on those mornings when I'm a bit more motivated, I'll make a French toast casserole, yummy homemade cinnamon rolls, or even a delicious vegetable frittata like this one. All of these options, and all of the other yummy breakfast recipes I make, are also great for lunch and dinner, as well.

I'll even spend Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon making a huge batch of pancakes, banana bread, and/or waffles to eat the rest of the week (or a couple weeks) for a quick, delicious breakfast. This particular recipe was like that for me, except it had one huge bonus. Unlike all of my other breakfast ideas, this yummy dish is packed full of veggies. I have to say that between the eggs, cheese, and tons of veggies, it was amazing. I ate it for breakfast and dinner a few days.

And you can easily mix it up in order to use up any veggies in your refrigerator that are about to go bad. Sometimes I have broccoli and sweet peppers, and at other times, it may be cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Whatever you end up using, it's sure to be wonderful. Give it a shot and you'll see. Let me show you how easy it was!

This is one recipe I really like to repeat often. Not only does it provide the protein we all need first thing in the morning in order to have a day full of energy, but it's packed full of veggies, allows me to use up what's in my fridge so nothing goes to waste, and we can eat it for several days for just about any meal. It's got everything you could want. And if you so desire, you could add all sorts of delicious ingredients like ham, spinach, kale, zucchini, tomatoes, etc., and make it your own.

I seem to be on a breakfast kick this week. As I look through all of my recipes from over the years, I have tons of chicken and hamburger dishes, and even have loads of soups, desserts, and extras. But I hardly have any breakfast recipes. So in our busy moving process, our house slowly being taken apart, and everything being sold, one thing has remained unchanged. We enjoy our breakfast!

I've spent the last couple of weeks making cinnamon rolls, cinnamon raisin bread, pumpkin spice banana bread, sweet potato spoon bread, egg sandwiches, and all sorts of yummy creations. Hopefully, in addition to this delectable vegetable frittata, I can get all of the other ones published soon as well so I can share them with you! When we get out to the new house, you'll likely get even more great recipes using fresh, homemade, and/or homegrown ingredients.
