I’m enamored with frittatas. Not only do you get all of the possibilities of an omelet, but you don’t have to worry about flipping it at the end. Whatever you happen to have hanging out in the fridge or the pantry is fair game, work is minimal and the result is good hot from the oven or at room temperature. Frittata can be breakfast, brunch, an appetizer, a starter or the main course of any dinner, they are that versatile.
While all frittata recipes are similar, each variation has its own special little variations, which is why you’ll see so many different recipes for this dilectable dish out there. This one came from two distinct needs. The first was to get some food in me because I was starving. The other was to find a use for some bacon left over from some wraps I whipped up the night before. In both cases this dish was imminently satisfactory.
If you’ve never thought of pairing eggs with broccoli, give it a whirl! Broccoli and cheddar frittatas are one of my go-to early morning meals, both because I love them and because they can be baking away while I deal with morning dishes and my son’s breakfast. By the time I’m done, breakfast is ready for Dad as well. You can’t beat that for simple and convenient.

What I would have done Differently had I thought of it at the time:
I think perhaps a little Romano cheese would have given this dish a bit more punch, otherwise just good ol’ cheddar would work wonderfully here.

One of my favorite combos, actually. Broccoli and cauliflower are great here, too. I never get tired of throwing stuff together with eggs!
I’m enamored of them too…good way to mix protein and veggies. My faves are spinach, sundried tomatoes, artichokes and always with some kind of cheese and a handful of bacon bits.

This looks and sounds like a great recipe. Never thought of the broccoli and eggs combo before! Thanks for sharing :)
I like adding thinly sliced potato and colorful bell peppers to frittata…it makes it a little more hardy. Does that break any frittata rule? I hope not!
I’m a huge frittata fan as well and this one looks delicious! A great way to get the kids to eat their veggies. :)
