Spinach-Artichoke Frittata

DSC_0550

One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to eat a simple, tasty and healthy breakfast on the days I go to work at 6:30 in the morning! It has to be pre-made and be capable of reheating. I thought about a frittata. After doing some research, I came up with this combination of ingredients. I had never made a frittata before, so I was somewhat surprised how easy it is to make. It is also quite versatile, you can choose different vegetables, cheeses and meats, whatever you like! Just make sure you have enough egg to cover the ingredients. It looks like we will be having delicious and healthy frittatas on a regular basis on Sunday mornings, so I will  have leftovers for the work week!
