Mini Spinach Frittata with Red Quinoa, Bacon & Tomatoes

My youngest started school today. I wasn’t ready.

Well, I was eagerly ready to send him back to school, but all the prep work was nowhere near complete. During the school year, I try to run a tight ship and schedule. With school, extracurricular activities, work, etc., it’s easy to run out of time. And then there’s packing three lunches every day, coming up with easy dinner ideas, and making sure the boys have a good breakfast before heading out the door.

Yeah, that’s a lot of prep work. I love easy meal ideas, ideas that allow me to get a delicious and healthy meal on the table in under 30 minutes. Same goes for breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s my role to make sure my boys have everything they need to have a good day.

It starts at breakfast. We try to come up with easy breakfast ideas, like our breakfast omelet bites. Many of you have utilized our weekly meal plan ideas. In these meal plans, we try to use leftover food as much as possible to cut down on cost and waste. Same goes with this frittata recipe we’re sharing red quinoa with swordfish (amazing). I also found a bag of spinach, along with some pepper feta cheese and some shaved Parmesan, some eggs, and a single yellow onion from the pantry. Okay, so far it all is coming to together.

My husband is the master Chef in our home and keeper of our garden. I love being able to walk right outside and grab fresh herbs to use for our meals. I was able to pick a few fresh peppers and cherry tomatoes to go into our frittata.

We all love to save money, and you guys know how much I LOVE to use mPerk offers from Meijer (and I know you do too).

Back inside looked in the tray where we keep the bread and noticed a French loaf just hanging out, and since we have a “no loitering” policy in the kitchen, he has to gots to go and go it went. I lopped off a few slices and threw ’em in the food processor, and there you go, breadcrumbs galore! Make the bread crumbs. It’s easy enough. Place two pieces of bread in the food processor and press the button. Viola!

Just to keep it interesting and because it would only be fitting for a Worthey breakfast (see what I did just now?), I kick-started a cast iron skillet and some thick-cut bacon into something crispy and beautiful. I couldn’t resist. Guilty as charged! Make some bacon. You’ve done this a billion times and one more time ain’t going to hurt you.

Let’s crack some eggs.

Mini Spinach Frittata with Red Quinoa, Bacon & Tomatoes

Crack four eggs into a bowl and whisk well, and to make ’em extra fluffy add one melted tablespoon ofI Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter the Olive Olive edition just to keep things fluffy to the eggs and whisk them until your arms get sore. ‘Cause another key to billowy eggs is getting air into them by whisking them like a madman or madwoman.

Divide the eggs between to baking bowls.

Now, this is the fun part. Add a turn of sea salt and freshly cracked black peppercorns.

      4 eggs
      Dash of heavy whipping cream
      Salt and pepper.

      Mix and fry to your liking. Then I drizzle it with Maggi’s Sweet Chili sauce. It’s a taste I acquired when I was pregnant with my first child.
