Broccoli Cheddar Frittata | Super Simple

This broccoli cheddar frittata makes planning for brunch or a weeknight dinner easier than ever. Whip it up, put it in the oven and go do something else. In 20-30 minutes, you have a healthy, delicious, protein and veggie-packed meal. I’m a big fan of this crustless quiche dish because you’ve already covered your green veggies for the meal in this dish – you don’t even have to make a salad. Eggs, broccoli and cheddar cheese complement each other not only in terms of flavor but also nutrition. I’ve always been interested in food pairings that boost nutrition and I enjoy reading about them.  Broccoli is rich in Vitamin C, which helps with the absorption of nutrients like Vitamin D from the eggs.

Broccoli Cheddar Frittata

You can pair this frittata with toast and a spicy soup like this one or even a tomato-based pasta like this one. Bonus: if you make a big batch or have leftovers of your broccoli cheddar frittata, it keeps well in the fridge for breakfast the next morning! Just leave a slice out for 30 minutes to come to room temperature or microwave for a few seconds if you prefer. This recipe is gluten-free and keto-friendly.
