An easy frittata recipe for dinner or brunch.

Frittata is my go-to dish when I don’t really feel like cooking. With end of school activities in full force, more often than not these days I need a quick and easy dinner that doesn’t require much of my time or brain power. So, I’m loving this simple frittata recipe.

The beauty of a frittata recipe is that it can be used for dinner, brunch, lunch, or breakfast. It’s a busy mom’s life saver.

I packed this recipe with kale to give it a boost of color. Feel free to switch up the veggies with whatever green veggies you find at your market — asparagus and rainbow chard work equally well. Serve it up with a side of roasted brussels sprouts chips or my favorite no-cook brussels sprouts salad.
