So, part of this whole having-to-move fiasco is trying to use up or get rid of things that we don't want to schlep to our next destination... including two huge bags of charcoal. Max keeps suggesting that we barbecue to try to get through our stockpile. Yesterday, we grilled up a simple and tasty meal that was so colorful, I just had to share.

Frittatas are a quick, one-pan meal that can often be prepared with whatever veggies you have on hand in the frige. Recently, I made a frittata with delicious fresh, chicken bratwurst, green bell peppers and oyster mushrooms.
The basics of frittata making are the same. Start with sauteing veggies and meats (if using) until veggies are tender and meat is cooked through. Then pour in eggs whisked with salt and pepper and let cook until the sides are set. Then put the whole thing under the broiler for a few minutes until the top is set and golden (or a smidge charred if you leave it in too long like me :)
I was too lazy for accompainiments, but this would have been delicious (and more in-line with Gundry) with a simple side salad of greens tossed in a vinaigrette.
For more detailed recipes and other ideas check out prior frittata posts here, here, here and here.
