BELL PEPPER BACON ONION FRITTATA is so tasty I had it for breakfast and lunch! Dad and the kids can make this for mom on Mother’s Day to show her just how awesome she is!
I just realized how close we are to Mother’s Day! Does anyone feel like it was just Christmas? I may or may not have just found a Christmas decoration that was missed when we took everything down. UGH. 🙂 I love Mother’s Day, my kids make me cards telling me things like I’m the “Beast Mom” and “I love you even if you scream” and my husband tries to make breakfast for me. He’s getting better but I wouldn’t want to give him anything too tricky. He’s a wiz at scrambling eggs though, so I know he can master this Bell Pepper Bacon Frittata and I can get breakfast in bed! 🙂

I really love the way this turned out. I used the cottage cheese instead of milk and you’d never know! It was really great and fluffy! I made sure that all the veggies were cooked and non of the extra liquid went into the eggs, so they didn’t get runny. It really is just chop and drop and then scramble. So simple and so delicious!
