Out of the Blue

I'm pretty pleased with the brunch I whipped up for MrsBlue and myself today. I recently made a frittata, which was really good, but very basic. Besides oil and seasoning it was essentially three ingredients: potatoes, onions, and eggs. Today I augmented it with bacon, cheddar cheese, and broccoli. This certainly took away from the healthy aspects of it, but it also definitely upped the ante as far as flavor goes. As I say, I'm pretty happy considering how off-book I was going from the original recipe. But of course it's pretty hard to go wrong by adding bacon and cheese to anything.

Cheesy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
