Easy Cheesy Arla Dofino Breakfast Frittata (PLUS GIVEAWAY!)

Cheesy Breakfast Frittata

Ack! It’s the holiday season already, and there is so much to do. So much fun, crafting, gifting, wrapping, parties, eating, concerts, tree lighting, Santa letter writing, movie watching, carol singing, decorating, kissing under the mistletoe and visiting to be done. It’s a joyful time of year.

Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Swiss Cheese and Shallot Jam

Eggplant Veggie Burgers

I like veggie burgers. I am not a vegetarian. I like meat and cheese and hot dogs. I know cheese is not a meat. What I really like is steak. And super delicious burgers. Flame broiled burgers, squishy sacks of roadside burgers, juicy and decadent double down burgers. Lamb burgers! I am good with all the burgers….
