I think the image of breakfast has changed and we tend to eat anything from a bowl of cereal to coffee cake to an egg extravaganza and all that goes in between My favorites are stuffed French Toast or apple pancakes. When I was a child, we did not eat cake for breakfast, EVER. Although, we had simple breakfasts, they satisfied me. Now, I would be bored with them. Sounds like I am more of a spoiled brat as an adult than as a child.
This frittata makes a great breakfast as well as dinner which is when I plan to serve it. I based it on a Mr. Food recipe but I made my own hash browns rather than use frozen ones. I used my favorite too, the bench scraper. I must admit, each time, I mention this tool, I start to write bench press. I guess that is because I need to exercise while eating such good food.
I love the bench scraper. I use it for chopping almost anything. It does not work well with bell peppers. I use it to scrape up cut up vegetables to go into a skillet. If I have spilled sugar or flour, out comes the bench scraper and it does a better job than any other kind of scooper. To sum it up, I keep the bench scraper out, most of the time, and I end up using it, most of the time.
