Make Thanksgiving An All-Day Affair With A Caramelized Onion Frittata For Breakfast

Morgan is a writer on the branded content team who loves breakfast food almost as much as she loves dogs.

With so much cooking to be done for Thanksgiving dinner, the last thing you need to worry about on the busy holiday is making breakfast.

To keep your stress to a minimum, the best thing to do is keep breakfast simple. Plus, you don’t want to fill up before the big feast.

However, a simple breakfast doesn’t have to be a bland bowl of cereal. On this week’s episode of Hostess Next Door, chef Vanessa Cantave is demonstrating how easy it is to have a delicious morning meal on the table in under 15 minutes.

With Vanessa’s caramelized onion frittata recipe, you can do some of the prep work the night before — like caramelizing your onions — so breakfast is served almost instantly. And with Eggland’s Best eggs, this onion frittata is a nutritious way to start the day.

For a full breakfast spread, consider also whipping up these yummy French toast waffles — you probably already have the ingredients sitting in your kitchen!

Check out Vanessa’s onion frittata recipe below to learn how you can save time without sacrificing flavor.
