Shrimp broccoli breakfast frittata

I love making frittatas especially for breakfast. Every since I started making frittatas I stopped making omelettes because these are way easier to make. After all, the only thing you have to do is add the egg mixture to the pan and whatever toppings you like place on top and bake it away. This shrimp broccoli breakfast frittata is the prime example. Easy, delicious and good for you!
