Registered Dietician

| 1 min read

I love this recipe. I usually make some version of a frittata or quiche on Christmas day for breakfast with the family. It is easy, healthy, delicious, nutritious and colorful. It leaves you with an easy morning of opening gifts because you whip up this recipe the night before and put it in the refrigerator. The next morning, you pull it out and bake it while you are opening presents.
It makes about 8 servings. So you will be able to feed your entire family.
