Broccoli Goat Cheese Frittata

Last night, Lauren, Helene and I joined a few other of our girlfriends for a ladies'-night-in full of wine, talking, and John Legend's Mac and Cheese. We went through six bottles of wine so naturally I woke up this morning feeling like a turducken.

In order to redeem myself I decided to start the day with a legit breakfast.

Let me start off by say I love quiche. You're probably like, "Wait a second, the title of this post says frittata. Girl do you even know?" Oh, I do know. I know that I love quiche, but making a crust (which in my opinion is a REQUIREMENT for quiche) was just NOT on the docket today because turducken. 

So. Next best thing, frittata.  

The nice thing about quiches and frittatas is that you can essentially just throw a bunch of delicious tasting things together, add some eggs, and boom you've got breakfast. Okay, so maybe it isn't that simple but it does take the pressure off of having "all the right ingredients" - ugh, I hate when that's a requirement. 

Fast forward to me standing in the kitchen starting to pull out ingredients. I knew I had asparagus so I pulled that out. BUT living up to the irresponsible twenty-something demographic I belong to, one glance at it and I knew it was two days past edible.

Back-up plan: Broccoli in the freezer. Things just got easier. Threw that bag in the microwave and got to work on the onion and garlic. Onion and garlic because it's onion and garlic and the smell of those two things cooking alone is worth it. 5 eggs because that felt right. And cheese. The earthy creamy dairy currency that is goat cheese.  I put it all together, baked it long enough for the eggs to set and then I was set. With a nice creamy slice of frittata. 

The End.
