This mushroom frittata is the perfect thing for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Packed with vegetables and tangy cheese. So yum!Hi Friends,

The majestic Mushroom frittata! I could eat it warm, cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So my mom loves to brunch ( yup she’s a Bruncher). In fact she isn’t a fussy cook, and as a treat we would have a breakfast for dinner night once per week. Whenever it was my turn to pick, I would always pick some kind of frittata. When she taught me to make the mushroom frittata I was in middle school but she wanted to teach me the basics in preparation for college life. The frittata was my favorite because its like a fancy omelet but without the stress of the dreaded flip.

So when I was living on my own I went on a frittata adventure. I wish that sounded a lot cooler, but alas it taught me tons. A frittata is basically a crustless quiche. And one of the BEST things about it is… you cook the filling ingredients and bake the frittata in the same skillet. I should write an ode to one pot meals:

Oh one pot meals 

Oh one pot meals 

you have saved me from the nail polish peels… 

That just reminded me that 1) I can’t sign 2) I am a terrible song writer.

This mushroom frittata is the perfect thing for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Packed with vegetables and tangy cheese. So yum!Back to the frittata, It is super simple and easy to make. But I think the best thing about this frittata is that you can use up all the random leftover ingredients that you might be have in your fridge. So use this recipe only as a guideline, you are embarking on a wondrous journey and you will thank me.

This mushroom frittata is the perfect thing for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Packed with vegetables and tangy cheese. So yum! There’s no limit to what you can throw in…Change up the cheese, veggies, walk on the wild side– add meat… Just have some fun, this is what cooking is all about!

This mushroom frittata is the perfect thing for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Packed with vegetables and tangy cheese. So yum!Just remember that you need a ovenproof, nonstick skillet for this. I always use my cast iron skillet mostly because it is my favorite thing in my kitchen. Also I use it because it has always released my frittata with no stickage (yup I went there).

I think I’ve impressed you with my songwriting and language prowess, now go and make this today!!! It is the perfect Monday dinner because: 1) I haven’t quite recovered from my monday morning blues 2) it is always the right time for a frittata.
