Sausage and Bell Pepper Frittata

Brinner = Breakfast + Dinner

I love having breakfast foods for meals other than breakfast time. Pancakes for lunch? Yes! Eggs for dinner? Yes 100%! Not only is whipping up a frittata easy, but you can use any leftovers for breakfast and save previous morning time. It’s a win-win.

I added sausage to this frittata but the sausages can be substituted with black beans. The bell peppers could easily be substituted for another vegetable. Overall, this meal is high in protein and fiber.

I served this with a brown rice and wild rice mix. When I had it the next day with breakfast, I ate it with corn tortillas and pickled jalapeños. It was delicious both ways.
