Easy Avocado & Salsa Fritatta

by Wednesday, April 3, 2013 Permalink 0

I wanted to share this real life, super easy breakfast with you – which I literally have once a week. It’s perfect during the busy work week or a Saturday morning when you don’t want to waste too much time in the kitchen. The mix of the spicy salsa, buttery avocado and tangy cojita cheese makes for a perfect combination on top of the eggs.

I much prefer this type of dish rather than sweet, carb laden dishes. I make this in my small 6 inch cast iron skillet, which is great on the flame or in the oven. The best part about it is the speed, it’s so quick and easy to make – literally the longest part of the recipe is heating the oven.
