A long, luxurious weekend brunch is one of the truest pleasures in life—not to mention a nearly certain hangover cure. One thing that will surely make you hangover worse, however, is waiting in line for 45 minutes at your favorite brunch spot and then paying a hefty bill at the end. Our solution: make brunch at home. A frittata (basically the Italian version of a quiche minus the crust) is a delicious one-dish breakfast of eggs, cheese and vegetables (though you could add sausage or bacon and still stay within budget). We eat it with toast and coffee and then climb back into bed.
6 eggs $2
1 cup half-and-half $2 for a pint
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese $4 for 6 oz.
1 small head broccoli, florets separated, stems removed $1
1/2 red bell pepper, diced $1
1 small onion, diced $1
2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
olive oil Pantry
1 tsp salt Pantry
1 tsp ground pepper Pantry
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8" pie pan liberally with olive oil. In a large bowl, beat eggs together with half-and-half. Gently stir in broccoli, bell pepper, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Sprinkle feta evenly over the top.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until the eggs set and are firm to the touch. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then cut into wedges and serve.
