Southwest Frittata - low carb and weight loss surgery recipes

I have been on such a frittata kick lately. They are super easy to make and pack a ton of flavor! I love having a Saturday morning frittata with the sun just waking up and coming in the windows. I can already feel it’s going to be a great weekend when I start it off with this routine!

Frittatas can be made so may different ways. The key here is to start things off on the stovetop and move it into the oven to set. Be sure to use a good non-stick pan for this. I love my Pampered Chef non-stick cookware and it makes life much easier for a recipe like this….egg can be tricky to clean up otherwise.
