***This post was originally published in December 2018 for some inspired and easy brunch fare, but the content is seasonally relevant, so we are re-sharing again today!
Food that is quick, tasty, and easily made ahead is something I strive for this time year. As many of you can probably relate, it always seems like we never have quite enough time: There are always presents to buy, things to make, do, or bake, and family and friends to visit with. Food related stress is an unnecessary addition to an already busy and bustle-y time.
For us, this asparagus and goat cheese frittata is the perfect Christmas morning food for when unwrapping presents seems to be the first thing on everyone’s mind. Its hearty, healthy, and veggie-packed to satisfy you until the big holiday feast later in the day.
The asparagus and goat cheese frittata can be prepped, covered, and in the fridge for up to two days prior to baking. Alternatively, bake it up to two days in advance and gently warm before serving. Yes, it’s possible. Easy holiday brunch mornings can be a breeze.
