Did you eat breakfast today? Was it as delicious as this Roasted Red Pepper and Pesto Frittata? Was it packed with protein, good quality fat, greens and loads and loads of flavor?
Let me introduce you to my favorite go-to breakfast right now. She is a beautiful frittata packed with some of my favorite flavors – roasted red bell peppers, pesto, turkey bacon, quinoa, kale and eggs.
The new year for me always gets me excited about trying new recipes and getting back on track with my healthy eating because nutritionist or not – I fell of that wagon too. But instead of beating myself up and starving myself with a juice cleanse I just got back to the basics.
Clean, whole food that is easy to make, filling and lasts more than one meal.
If you have a well stocked pantry – and I hope you do because if you do then this dish will take you no longer than 20 minutes to put it together, 30 minutes to cook it and then you have breakfast for 6 days.
You are welcome.
And if you don’t have a well stocked pantry – well you better email me about my pantry makeover program. Wink. Wink.
For this recipe you will need:

The key to making this little fellas to bake them in a muffin tin. I used a large muffin to make mine but if you have the traditional 12 cup one – use that. Just know that one serving will be 2 frittata muffins.
