This simple and delicious baked egg frittata is perfect for any occasion or meal! All you need are your favorite omelet ingredients to bake this heavenly egg based dish.
Sunday brunch is an all time favorite of mine. When the family can get together I hope it is either celebrated with a brunch or a barbeque! So with Father's Day in only a few days, we are preparing some brunch festivities and meals. This baked egg frittata is my go-to breakfast item because it doesn't take TOO much preparation BUT it still brings flavor, nutrition and uniqueness to the breakfast table.
I like to use ingredients that you normally would find in your average omelet but the ingredient combinations are endless!
