Brussels Sprout Frittata
Growing up, I detested vegetables. While I’ve heard stories from my mom about me gnawing on a pickle in my high chair at a year old, I have no recollection of these events. You still couldn’t get me to touch a pickle (or cucumber) these days, but my feelings towards vegetables have turned a corner. Case in point:
This frittata is full of delicious aromatics (shallots and garlic) and is oh so tasty! The best part is that it provides a week’s worth of breakfasts for a single lady like myself. Top with avocado, salsa, pesto, or shredded cheese, zap in the microwave and serve with a side of bacon and you’ve got yourself a wholesome meal.
