Breakfast is easily the hardest meal of the day to make time for. Despite our best eight-hours-a-night intentions, some days you just wake up bleary-eyed and hurrying to get out the door, and making a healthy breakfast is the last thing on your mind. And while protein bars or a bowl of cereal aren’t the worst things in the world, easy frittata recipes exist too. So there’s no reason not to make #breakfastgoals a weekday achievement. Seriously, they all have four ingredients or less (duh), plus some spices, and take just a few minutes to whip up… you got this.
Get in a serving of veggies first thing in the a.m. and feel like a champ all day. This savory frittata is made with smoky Gouda, asparagus, and peas; throw it all in a baking pan and cook for 20 minutes while you get ready.
Satisfy your bagel-and-lox craving with this frittata, which uses strips of smoked salmon, peas, and broccoli. It all comes together in a frying pan in 15 minutes.
Add zucchini, sweet corn, and onion to your eggs for a filling, casserole-like breakfast that’s ready in 20 minutes. TBH, we’d pack this for lunch too. And probably eat leftovers for dinner.
Meal-prep these easy muffins and have breakfast ready for the week. Made with eggs, chicken sausage, and bell peppers, these muffins are cheese free and Paleo-friendly. Feel free to sub in your favorite veggies if you prefer. We’re thinking spinach, tomatoes, or onions.
This cheesy frittata takes slightly more time if you want to caramelize the onions, but you could also just cook ’em up normally to save some precious morning minutes. Pick just one cheese—mozzarella or goat—to make it truly four ingredient.
Leeks are an underrated veggie in general, so we fully support adding them to your breakfast routine. Cook leeks and mushrooms in a pan, add scrambled eggs, and bake.
Bacon makes everything better, especially in the morning. This recipe is so easy, you could add cheese or another veggie to it and still make the four-ingredient mark.
