BackstoryI don’t generally toot my own horn, but this late night dinner was absolutely flavor-packed, delectable and fiery.
I made Egg Frittata with apple smoked turkey bacon and corn bread. This meal was very easy to make, absolutely delicious, and a perfect ‘breakfast inspired’ dinner. The hardest part of this meal is heading to your local farmer’s market to pick up these ingredients.
I went to the Farmer’s market this morning and purchased a ton of veggies, produce and some interesting curiosities. I know it’s a schlep to get to your local market, and generally you should bring cash, but I cannot express how much BETTER the food tastes when you get it fresh and local. It’s no joke.
