Brussels Sprouts and Parmesan Frittata

My chickens have an incredible ability to produce more eggs than we can eat at breakfast, so we are constantly on the lookout for dinner recipes that have the ability to use a ton of eggs!  This recipe fits the bill, and could only perhaps be improved by a smidge of bacon being added at the beginning.

This recipe starts off on the stove top and then finishes in the oven.
