Skinny Broccoli and Bacon Mini Frittatas

Let’s talk a little bit about breakfast! Sound good? I love-love-love breakfast food. Bob Evan’s is one of my favorite breakfast spots when I can splurge a bit on the calorie intake. I always order the Farmers Breakfast.  What does that include?  Sooo glad you asked!  I order mine with Eggs (over easy), Bacon, Hash browns and French Toast (extra butter, please). I sound like a porker, huh? Yup. Well, when it comes to breakfast — bring it! {giggle}

Skinny Broccoli and Bacon Mini Frittatas with Live Laugh Rowe

However, that is only an occasional treat.  Here on the homestead, a typical breakfast consists of Greek Yogurt, Poached Eggs or a bowl of Cheerios with sliced bananas.  Then there’s the weeks where I decide to whip up some frittatas or muffins.  Recently I decided to give this weight watcher recipe a try, Broccoli and Bacon Mini Frittatas.  Weight Watchers Points+:  5 points
