The Hubster is a huge fan of breakfast for dinner.

I prefer breakfast for breakfast.

But the one thing we agree on is that frittatas can be served any time of day. They are perfect for Sunday brunch or a week night dinner. And are even perfect as leftovers.

So when The Hubster suggested breakfast for dinner last week, I decided to try a new frittata. One that incorporated black beans.

I would also suggest adding in some tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, and/or salsa if you can.

We didn’t, and it was a little less flavorful than we had hoped.
