Mushroom and Swiss Frittata #FoodieExtravaganza

This delicious frittata is perfect for Breakfast, Brunch, or Brinner.  Filled with sauteed onions and mushrooms, sprinkled with Swiss cheese and finished in the oven it is a complete meal ready in a snap.

We are celebrating National Breakfast Month with the folks over at Foodie Extravaganza......

Sue of Palatable Pastime is hosting this month and invited us all to share a Hot Breakfast Recipe.  Let's take a look at what was brought to the table.........

Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays by cooking and baking together with the same ingredient or theme each month.

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you're a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board!

Breakfast is usually a pretty casual affair around her unless it is the weekend or we have company.  We might just grab a muffin or smoothie as we head out the door during the week. Or maybe a hard boiled egg or a piece of fruit.  If we have time we might have a bowl of cereal or toast or bagel.

But on the weekends we enjoy a late breakfast either at home or at a restaurant after morning Mass on Sundays.  Then we pull out all the stops.  Bacon and/or Sausage, eggs, pancakes, french toast, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, hash, potatoes, etc.  And we often enjoy breakfast for dinner, especially during Lent or on Meatless Mondays.

It is so easy to omit meat when making breakfast food.  A quiche, omelet or fritatta made with only vegetables is filling and delicious.  My family never even notices that they are eating meatless.  Poached Eggs on Toast, Waffles topped with a perfectly fried egg, Bagels stuffed with cheese and eggs are all fast, quick meals that don't require much more than the ingredients you have in the refrigerator and pantry and are very budget friendly.

So whether you enjoy this frittata for breakfast, lunch or dinner you will be pleased with how quickly it comes together and how incredibly tasty it is.  Frank and I enjoyed this one on Meatless Monday for brunch.

In 15 minutes time we were enjoying this dish with a side of toast spread with orange and coconut marmalade.  YUM!!

What is your favorite breakfast food?  When do you like to enjoy it?
