19 Jul Baked Frittata
Breakfast on tour typically consists of a cup of coffee, and a pastry, if you are lucky. We stock our bus with cereal but due to limited space keeping milk on hand isn’t even easy. I wanted to make a breakfast that was easy to reheat and that would fill band members up. I settled on baking a frittata. We had a few veggies on hand and roasting them up with be easy enough. Frittatas are great for left overs in your fridge – veggies, chunks of chicken, ham, whatever…just toss it in!
