What's more, frittatas leave practically no mess in the wake of their prep. This Kale, Red Pepper, and Goat Cheese Frittata works well as a faux-fancy dish to serve for brunch or as an easy make-ahead lunch or dinner.

Sure, you may need a wafflemaker to whip this one up, but after seeing this Frittafle recipe we're running to the nearest Costco to buy one ASAP. The ingrdients themselves are pretty standard—bell pepper, roasted potatoes, arugula, bacon (we suggest trying turkey bacon), and cheese—but turning it into waffle form makes it that much more fun to eat.
