ARTICHOKE PESTO LEEK FRITTATA

Mornings around this house can get a little crazy at times….I mean I’d be a big fat liar if I told you that we have it together every.single.day. Our mornings usually consist of looking for a missing shoe for a half hour and trying to get all the knots out of my daughters hair. Then try adding some good wholesome food into their little bodies before they spend all day at school.  7:30 am really can be killer sometimes.  That’s why, when I meal prep, I usually make some sort of frittata.  Why a frittata you ask? Because it’s SO simple to make (you really could add whatever you’d like to it) and it can chill in your fridge for about a week!

This frittata is a little more special because it uses my artichoke pesto in it!! And yes, I know what you are thinking….Jen, isn’t that too much artichoke? No, no it isn’t!!  There can never ever be too much artichoke. #artichokeforpresident.  I pinky swear, and cross my heart, that you will love it with all the extra artichokes!

Remember at the beginning of this post (I mean how could you forget already), how I talked about making frittata’s during my meal prep…..I do it because when I’m having a hot mess of a morning I can just tell the kids to grab a slice and some fruit and eat it. Easy enough for them and gives me more time to find that dang missing shoe!!

But now I want to know…..what are your favorite things to put in a frittata? I really want to know all your frittata ingredient secrets!
