Father's Day

Good Sunday Morning to ya'll and Happy Father's Day to every man who is a father or going to be a father. It is important to celebrate your dads; they had a tremendous part in raising us, they were always the strong ones (who looked for boogey mans under the bed, killed those spiders or helped move all of your belongings into your own place) and they have an incredible amount of wisdom just waiting for the day their kids asked them a question. Hats off to you guys; the strong, the brave and the ever loving men in our lives.

This morning I decided to celebrate Father's Day with my husband. He isn't a father to any children yet (he will be amazing!) but he is a father figure in the lives of our animals so he too needs to be celebrated. I made a PG&B Frittata (Potatoe, Green Pepper and Bacon Frittata). This recipe can easily be adapted to any one's preference. There are so many options with substitutions so try it out and see what works best for your family.

1 tbsp of olive oil
1 C frozen hash browns
1 C chopped green pepper (about 1 small pepper)
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of black pepper
3 large eggs
4 large egg whites
3-4 slices of bacon, chopped
1/4 C cheddar cheese

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add hash browns, green pepper, oregano, salt and black pepper. Cook, while stirring occasionally, until the veggies are softened; or about 5-6 minutes.

While those are cooking, place bacon on another skillet or griddle and cook until crispy. Then lightly beat the eggs and egg whites in a medium bowl. Reduce the heat on the hash brown mix to medium and add the bacon. Then pour the egg mix over the entire hashbrown/bacon mix evenly and let cook for about 3 minutes. Lift the frittata up every now and then to make sure all the egg mix seeps down to the bottom and cooks.

Sprinkle the cheddar cheese evenly over the frittata. Reduce to low and cook until the cheese is melted. Cut the frittata and enjoy your breakfast.
