    Anyone else watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? I will admit it… I do. It is my smut TV; a hour that I can escape from real world issues and engross myself in the problems of ridiculously wealthy people.

    The point of this ramble? Lisa from RHOBH has been doing I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Commercials with a very attractive chef and they are always making frittatas!

    I found myself thinking about them every day at breakfast while eating my cardboard protein bar, so that night we had breakfast for dinner. Brinner, ya know?

    If you’re wondering what is a frittata? That’s what I’m here for, to keep you well informed. A frittata is essentially an Italian omelette. A mix between Spanish tortilla and American omelette.

    One of the benefits of a frittata is that you don’t have to flip it! I’ve never been a good flipper. I get all anxious and undoubtedly mess it up when I go for the big show. Also instead of having to make several omelettes, you only need to make one frittata and then slice like a pie.

    You will need a good cast iron pan or oven safe skillet, as it starts on the stovetop, but moves to the oven. While this is my favorite mix, you can put literally anything into a frittata!

    My husband’s family has an Easter tradition of a meat frittata, which is exactly like it sounds. Four or five different types of cured meats floating in egg. I like to make mine vegetarian, using up leftover odds and ends from the vegetable crisper. Some of my favorites are capers, pepperoncini, fresh herbs and cheeses.
