I make frittata’s all the time because I enjoy eating them, but also because they are something that can be made ahead. I like to make sure that my husband always has a healthy breakfast in the morning, even we don’t get up at the same time. Plus, I don’t always feel like making breakfast first thing when I wake up. It takes 2 cups of coffee and about an hour before I’m fully awake. Trust me, you don’t want me making breakfast before I’ve had my morning coffee.
This Zucchini Onion and Jalapeno Frittata is a great way to get your protein, veggies and healthy fat all in one dish. I’d much rather have this than some breakfast sandwich I picked up in a drive-thru. Although, I’ll admit I do enjoy a tasty chicken biscuit from Chick-fil-A occasionally. It’s just not something that I would want to eat on a regular basis.
Frittata’s are also a great way to use up any veggies that you have left in the fridge. Sometimes, I have just one lonely zucchini in the fridge, so this is a great way to use it. I happened to also have a leftover jalapeno the other day, so I chopped that up and threw that in as well. The sour cream adds a nice flavor and texture to the dish that I really enjoy.
