Breakfast for dinner Frittata

So last night I decided to make breakfast for dinner. :) But of course, this Frittata can be made for breakfast as well, and would be great for a brunch as well! It can be totally tweaked and changed and you can pretty much put anything you want in it. But here is the way I made mine :)

*1 tablespoon olive oil
*1 small onion diced
*1 small green bell pepper diced
*handful give or take of fresh spinach lightly chopped
*2 cups frozen diced potatoes
*4 eggs
*2 egg whites
*Salt and pepper to taste (I also used a sprinkle of cayenne pepper)
*shredded cheese to top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

For this meal you will need an oven safe pan, I didn't have a PAN but I had a medium pot that was oven safe so that is what I had to go with.

Heat oil in the oven safe pan over medium-high heat. Add the diced potatoes, onions and bell pepper. Saute for 5-7 minutes. Then, add the chopped spinach, and cook for 1minute.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, egg whites and spices together. I also always add a splash of milk to my eggs, it makes them more light and fluffy.

After the onions =and potatoes have cooked for 5-7 minutes and you have added your spinach, pour the egg mixture into the pan and distribute evenly. Don't stir it all together. Tilt the pan if needed to distribute the eggs.

Cook for about 6 minutes, until the edges look dry but the top still looks wet.

Sprinkle with cheese and put into the oven for around 5 minutes, or until the top is fully cooked, and the cheese has melted.

And serve! :) This should easily serve 3-5 people, depending on the size of your servings.

I didn't have any on hand but diced ham would go GREAT in this dish.

My husband also topped his with some salsa and sour cream which he loved.
