I have to make this one speedy--I have Birthday visitors on their way--yes, today is my birthday, and yes, it sucks having your birthday this close to Christmas.  I do have to say this has been a fantastic birthday though thus far.  Anyway, these two little 17 month old monkeys are on their way to visit with their parents, my bro and sister (in law). 

Are you still trying to figure out what to make for Christmas morning?  Here is a quick and easy dish that bakes quick (in comparison to other egg bakes) and you can throw in whatever you have on hand.  

So, here is a quick and easy fritatta for Christmas morning!  Enjoy and Merry Christmas to all! xoxo. 

Musical Selection: Let it Snow by: Michael Buble.  I was so happy to wake up and have it snowing today!  
Start by frying up some bacon.  Like I said, you can use whatever you have on hand so, ham, sausage, turkey whatever is left over from the night before. 
I added some green peppers and red onion.  You could add other veggies like broccoli, mushrooms, tomatoes the possibilities are endless. I sautéed them up just a bit to take some of the bite out of them.
Whip up a few eggs...
Add a dash of milk.
Drain the meat and veggies on a paper towel lined plate.
Stir it all together.
Add a good handful of cheese. I used cheddar but (again), use what you have.  Swiss, pepper jack, American would all be great.
Pour into a greased baking dish.
Top with a little more cheese and bake in a preheated oven at about 350.
It comes out all puffy and golden-delicious.
Eggy perfection.
Topped with my mother in law's amazing salsa.  Doesn't get much better than that.  


1/2 lb bacon (or ham, sausage or turkey)
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, chopped 
6 or 7 eggs
dash of milk
1/2 cup cheese (cheddar, swiss, pepper jack or American) + additional for topping
salsa, optional for serving

Fry the bacon or heat up the meat in a large frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil.  After a few minutes add the onion and pepper.  Sauté until tender. 

Whip up the eggs with a  splash of milk.  Add the meat, veggies and cheese.  Pour into a baking dish and top with additional cheese.  

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.  When a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean it is done.  

Top with salsa if you wish.
