In a grab-and-go breakfast world, eggs feel like a luxury. They’re a lazy-Saturday-morning meal, or a perk when plattered and presented for a special brunch. But really, in about as much time as it takes to make a bowl of chopped fruit-topped oatmeal, you can create a light, fluffy, egg dish loaded with fresh veggies and protein. Not an omelet, not a quiche, the frittata is customized easily, with add-ins simply sprinkled on before the creation is baked.
