I really like this simple cheeseburger frittata recipe a lot! I used to make a version of this many years ago but had actually forgotten about it until recently when I stumbled across an old collection of recipes that I used to make about 10 years ago. It is simple to make and has a lot of flavors and I often use it as a dinner idea, although it is wonderful for breakfast or lunch too! Pair it with a small bowl of fresh fruit and you have a nourishing, fantastic meal!

This version will feed two generously. It is really great for Sunday brunch or a nice dinner. It reheats really well too (and I know this from personal experience!) Luckily, this recipe is both gluten and grain-free so it is great for those who cannot eat grains. You can easily make this dairy-free by substituting non-dairy milk like almond or coconut milk in place of the milk or heavy cream.

It is both gluten-free and grain-free.
