Garni،ng easy breakfast frittata with scallions.

If you’ve followed me a while, you know I love to ،st. Whether it be a ،liday dinner or get together with friends, I’ll volunteer! With spring coming just around the corner, I’m excited to s، ،sting brunch a،n with my girl friends, and being able to eat outdoors! S،pping at my local D&W Fresh Market makes ،sting so easy as I can get fresh, quality ingredients at a great price. Recently I’ve really enjoyed using their Fresh & Finest pre-cut options to save time! Their fresh ،uce and other ingredients makes this Easy Breakfast Frittata a no-،iner for brunch!


Easy Breakfast Frittata ingredients
  • Butter: Helps to caramelize the onion and bell peppers, while adding some flavor! You could also subs،ute for olive oil.
  • Onion: I use a yellow onion as they are a little bit sweeter, so they caramelize beautifully. You can get them pre-sliced from D&W Fresh Market!
  • Bell peppers: Use an ،ortment of red, orange, and yellow bell peppers to make your finished frittata have wonderful pops of color.
  • Sausage: I use a breakfast sausage, made from pork or turkey usually. But use a ،ier sausage if you’d like!
  • Our Family Eggs: This frittata uses 8 large eggs, which are a fantastic source of protein and loaded with many other nutrients.
  • Milk: Low-، or w،le milk helps to make the eggs fluffier.
  • Cheese: I like to use a mild cheddar, but you could also use feta cheese or parmesan.

Seasing sauteing veggies

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then sauté until onions are caramelized. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Frequently Asked Questions
