Repeat after me:
A fueling, tasty breakfast ready and waiting in my fridge definitely makes it easier to get out of bed in the morning!
Okay, okay. No, you don’t have to repeat that. But, yes, I am trying to sell you on just how good it feels to wake up knowing that you already have breakfast figured out and done. It’s a beautiful thing.
I don’t know about you, but having a ready-to-eat breakfast is my favorite way to start the day. On a busy weekday morning, I don’t even want to think about any kind of meal preparation. Getting out of bed is hard enough on its own! Prepping a big batch of breakfast foods like this sheet pan frittata really helps me solve that challenge. And when breakfast feels this easy (and delicious), it somehow makes me feel a lot more prepared to plow through the rest of the day’s challenges and tasks.
If you want to auto-pilot your breakfast, and you’re also looking for easy ways to add more veggies to your plate, this sheet pan frittata is your solution.
You can make this at the beginning of the week, and dip into it for days, in lots of different ways:
- Pair it with some fruit on the side.
- Slap it on a piece of whole-grain bread (like this Mestemacher rye I love), or tuck into a wrap.
- Use it to build a brunch-worthy meal by enjoying it with some Greek yogurt, berries, (and maybe oats, too?) on the side.
- Heck, you can even enjoy it as a snack!
To make this recipe even easier, feel free to rely on pre-chopped/shredded veggies, or your leftover cooked veggies for your add-ins. This can save you one step on the prep.
So, the basic steps look like this (see recipe text below for full instructions):
- Mushroom, arugula, and feta: 10-12oz sliced mushrooms, several big handfuls of arugula, ¼ cup feta
- Western omelet-style: 1 large onion chopped, 1 ½ green bell peppers chopped, 1 6 oz. package Canadian bacon, chopped
- Broccoli, sliced tomato, and oregano
- Whatever veggies you have on hand that you need to use up!
- Really, whatever combination sounds delicious to you.
I’d love to know how it goes if you add this to your meal prep this week! What did you use for your add-ins? What did you pair it with to make a meal?
