Easy Frittata

We eat a lot of eggs in my house.  A LOT.  I’m also always looking for new ways to make them so when I came across Danielle Walker’s frittata recipe from Against All Grain  I knew I wanted to make it.  Except that sometimes putting pans like cast oven skillets into the oven scares me.  I mean, it’s a cast iron skillet.  In the oven.  And it is heavy. But one day I got brave and just did it.  Yes, Carl was standing behind me for moral support, but I overcame my fear of a hot, heavy pan and I’m so glad that I did because this recipe is amazing.  Since making Danielle’s original recipe we’ve experimented (see, I’m a scientist by nature) with adding lots of different veggies, meats, milks and seriously almost anything you put into a frittata will taste amazing.  I say almost because I know there is someone out there thinking that if they put something crazy like crayons or peanut butter in a frittata it would be gross – and it may be but seriously guys, we aren’t in elementary school. 😉

Two weeks ago Carl and I decided to go all in and follow the meal plan and workouts for The Master’s Hammer & Chisel.  I was super excited when I saw that one of the recipes in the program guide was also a frittata.  The day that we made our frittata we didn’t have some of the ingredients listed in the original recipe so we used what we had.
