You are super busy with kids and work. In the mornings you juggle getting the kids ready for school, getting to work on time, and don’t forget the chores before you go. The challenge is how you can make a substantial and nutritious breakfast to eat in the car while driving the kids to school or on your way to work and furthermore, that it’s not messy? You got this under control; make my frittatas for the road. Bring some crackers, fruits, and juice and you are done.
I usually make my frittatas directly in the mold without the paper or foil cups. However, I am using the foil in this recipe so that you can put them in a ziplog bag to eat in the car or better yet, at the office. As you can see, I kept my yesterday promise to give you this recipe today!
