Add ground turkey/Canadian Bacon and cheese to your egg. Add cheese to the egg mixture before cooking if you like cheesy eggs

As someone that is allergic to gluten, I am always searching for something that will replace bread. A Frittata is the Italian version of the American Omelette. It can be a nice substitute for a bunless egg sandwich. 

Here is my recipe for the breadless breakfast sandwich that is gluten free and can also be made for vegetarians.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Eggs Per Side (If you are making a whole sandwich you will use 4 eggs. If you are using a tiny saucepan use 1 egg per side)
  • 1/3 cup Veggies (Ideas: Mushrooms/ Peppers/ Onions)
  • Handful Spinach (Please note that Spinach shrinks a lot when cooking)
  • 1/4 tbsp Olive Oil Or use a non-stick pan
  • Salt and Pepper To taste

Instructions
 

  • Heat the Olive Oil in a small saucepan on Med (the olive oil will aid with non-sticking) (the size of the saucepan will be the size of the breakfast frittata sandwich.
  • Once the oil is hot put in vegetables and saulte´ to liking (usually about 1.5 minutes when the vegetables get translucent).
  • Turn the setting of the pan to low and wait another minute.
  • Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and whip together (salt and pepper to taste).
  • Make sure Vegetables are in the middle and away from the edges of the pan for the shape of the egg frittata.
  • Pour the eggs into the pan.
  • Cover with a lid so the steam cooks the eggs.
  • Check your egg after a minute to see if the top is cooked.
  • If you like a crunchier egg flip the egg. Before flipping, make sure the bottom of the egg is set, this way it will not break. Use a spatula (that is meant for the heat) to aid in flipping the egg.
  • Repeat recipe for the other side.

Notes

Saute´the vegetables for both side at once to save time.
Add ground turkey/Canadian Bacon and cheese to your egg. Add cheese to the egg mixture before cooking if you like cheesy eggs.
