Tomato Dill Frittata

Tomato Dill Frittata

 

If you know me, I cannot start out my day without a filling breakfast.  I mean, what’s not to love about muffins, toast, pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon…..

After a breakfast like that I can almost say hallelujah! and call it day – almost.

So when I run across dishes made with breakfast foods that I can make later in the day, well…I’m not ashamed to admit I get a little excited.

A good baked egg dish is always on my list of favorite recipes.  Filled with a variety of flavors: meat, vegetables, cheese and spices, that combine to give you a different taste from each bite.  I mean, look at the chunks of flavor in this frittata?  You have:

fresh garden tomatoes

spicy red onions

farm-raised eggs with their own deep indulgence of taste

salty goat cheese

all enhanced with a touch of dill, which compliments the vegetables nicely.

And it’s so easy to make – just stir it up in a bowl, pour it into your pan and stick it in the oven.  I even enhanced my already-seasoned skillet with bacon grease to give even more flair to the dish.  Just another great use for saved bacon grease!  (like you need an excuse to save bacon grease)
