Looking for brunch ideas for two? Mr. Cozi and I love to have brunch on the weekend and this weekend it was a frittata, sweet potato hash browns, bacon and fruit. One thing I love about a frittata is how easy it is to put together.
Spinach and Peppers Frittata
- 1/2 Tablespoon olive or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup julienned orange pepper
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow onion
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 4 eggs, beaten
- salt and pepper to taste
Slice peppers and onion. Heat a sauté pan over med-hi heat and add oil. Add vegetables and cook until tender. Pour eggs over vegetables and cook until sides of eggs are set. Reduce heat to low, cover and continue cooking until the middle is no longer runny. Slice frittata into four pieces and serve with bacon.
Baking bacon in the oven keeps the stovetop clean.
Place bacon on cooling rack over a foil-lined jellyroll pan and bake at 400 degrees until crisp. About 8-10 minutes.
Sweet Potato and Turkey Kielbasa Hash Browns
- 1 (14 ounce) package turkey kielbasa, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 yellow, red or orange bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 small or 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- In a heavy bottomed skillet (I like to use my cast iron), heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown and cooked through, around 8-10 minutes, stirring a few times to ensure even browning.
- In a separate skillet, brown the sliced kielbasa for around 5 minutes in 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium high heat. Remove the kielbasa from the pan and set aside. Add the peppers and onions to the skillet and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, or until softened, stirring occasionally.
- Add the cooked potatoes and kielbasa to the skillet with the onions and peppers and mix everything together. (Source: The Two Bite Club)
This recipe makes 4-6 servings. I use the leftovers as a one-dish breakfast meal during the week.
Mr. Cozi and I ate every bite! I’d love to know what you cook for two on the weekend.
