Ingredients:

Healthy, easy, and oh so tasty

Frittatas are one of Seattle-based dietitian Tess Han’s favorite go-to breakfast items! They’re incredibly easy and are a great way to use up leftover seasonal veggies and protein you’ve got in the fridge. They also make for great meal prepped breakfasts to have throughout the week. This recipe includes seasonal winter vegetables such as kale, Brussel sprouts, and leeks! These winter veggies are high in vitamin K, vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. This frittata gets even BETTER using Washington local Beecher’s Handmade Flagship Cheese, adding the perfect flavor to compliment the eggs and winter vegetables in the frittata with quality protein and calcium, making a nutrient-packed breakfast!
