Three Cheese Frittata

Ever have those nights when you just don’t know what to make for dinner?
Of course, we all have!
Sometimes for us, that means breakfast for dinner, or as we like to call it, a backwards dinner!
On these kinds of nights, which tend to be the days when the hubby isn’t going to be home for dinner,
we either have pancakes, or eggs of some kind.
A lot of times, I make frittata!
It’s quick and easy to make, and it’s healthy.
But what I love most about frittatas, is how versatile they are!
If you’ve got eggs, cheese and milk, you’ve got dinner!
Better yet, if you want to get creative with this recipe, it’s so easy!

 

Three Cheese Frittata
