Cheesy Veggie Frittata {+ Panera Bread Giveaway}


Today, three years ago, I started this food blog.  I had a 3 month old baby at home, wasn't working and needed an outlet.  With the support of the husband {who said, 'sure go for it'}, I logged on to the computer and I haven't looked back since.

This blog has seen me through two babies, a job change, multiple opportunities with various companies, but most importantly it has given me the chance to meet many of you.  Many I would have never of had the chance to meet.

I truly am thankful to all my readers, my family and my friends for supporting this little idea.  I know many, many, many of you have recommended to your friends and co-workers a little something like this, 'hey, I have a friend who has a food blog, you should read it'.

And for that I am forever grateful.

They always say the best marketing is by world of mouth.

So happy 3-Year Blogoversary to me.  Stay with me a bit for this recipe and I promise at the end of this post I'll have a little surprise.


I am not ashamed to admit that our go-to meal is eggs.  If I have nothing planned, prepped, prepared or thawed for dinner we just do eggs.  Everyone likes them, they come together in about 5 minutes and are a good, healthy protein.

Well, the other night I actually planned to have eggs.  Not just our usual throw some in a pan and cook them eggs, but a frittata.  You can stick anything in a frittata...try mine, will you?

Cheesy Veggie Frittata
4 eggs
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
1/2 c. chopped mushrooms
1 slice of bread, cubed
1 t. minced onion
1 t. pepper
1 t. salt
1 c. cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a good-sized ramekin or 6x6 baking dish.  In a bowl, combine all ingredients, minus 1/2 c. of cheddar cheese.

Pour egg mixture into the dish.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven, add additional 1/2 c. of cheese to the top of the frittata.  Bake an additional 5 minutes, or until lightly golden and puffy.


So, to thank all my readers, I'm giving away a $10 Panera Bread gift card.  Treat yourself to lunch, throw it into someone's Christmas stocking, or give to a friend.

I love, love, love Panera and even have an upcoming sponsored blog post with them {stay tuned!}, so I figured it would be the perfect gift to all my foodies out there.  I'm going to let people comment here on this post and also on my Facebook post.  So do both for two chances!

Open to U.S. residents only.  I'll pick one random winner between this post and my Facebook page on Tuesday, December 11th.

Just tell me...

What did you ask for from Santa this year?  Good luck!
