We love brunch. Well, who doesn’t? There is nothing better than indulging in a comforting, super delicious, and filling meal with friends or family on the weekend. A homemade brunch always feels particularly special.
However, brunch dishes can get quite repetitive. We know just how it feels to get sick of the same old avocado toast and bacon sandwiches. And, if you happen to be hosting a brunch, the last thing you want is to serve guests a boring meal.
That’s where we come in. If you want to change up your brunch habits, check out our favorite frittata recipes below. Not only are they all mouth-wateringly delicious and look gorgeous on the table, but they are also super easy to make!
Take a look! You won’t be disappointed.

We love serving this dish with a fresh and zingy salad.
