Broccoli Velveeta Cheese Frittata

Broccoli Velveeta Cheese Frittata

Velveeta was the cheese of my childhood. I’m pretty sure I ate at least a little bit of it every single day. It was used in macaroni and cheese, scrambled eggs and in the bologna sandwiches that were packed in my lunch. If I needed a snack between meals, I was offered a slice of Velveeta instead of chips or cookies. Those little cardboard Velveeta boxes were repurposed to organize the silverware drawer and other little items throughout the house. It wasn’t until I was a teen that I discovered other types of cheese at my after school job at a deli.

However, I’m pretty sure it’s been at least 2 decades since I’ve had Velveeta. Recently, I saw the familiar box at the grocery store and thought I’d take a walk down memory lane. I quickly remembered why my mother liked it so much. It melts perfectly!

Velveeta Cheese

This broccoli cheese frittata is super easy to make. It tastes great right out of the oven and still tastes great as leftovers. With odd schedules, my family often needs to eat at different times. A frittata is wonderful way for everyone to have a good home cooked meal even if we aren’t sitting at the table at the same time. It’s also a good choice for brunch or a potluck.

    I bet lots of us ate Velveeta growing up. I still remember the foil wrapped loaf of cheese product inside the sturdy box.

    Broccoli and cheese were made for each other, this would be great for brunch or an easy dinner.

    I love that this recipe has no meat but still substance. Eggs always make a meal more filling and broccoli is excellent, cheese is like the cherry on top. I am a fan of butter but I don’t need the fat olive oil does the trick.
