Vegetable & Goat Cheese Fritatta

I don’t cook most weekday mornings, but I do cook on weekend mornings. The conversation most Saturday & Sunday mornings goes something like this (with variations on the final answer):

Me: “John, what do you want for breakfast?”
John: “I don’t know. What do we have?”
Me: “We have eggs, we have ingredients to make pancakes or waffles or muffins or…”
John: “How about something with eggs. Maybe a fritatta?”

So, this Saturday morning turned into a perfect fritatta morning. We had just received a basket from Greenling on Friday night, so we had lots of veggies to work with (peppers, mushrooms, spinach, etc.). We also had some farm eggs and a few other ingredients, too. So, I whipped up a fritatta, and it was delicious!
