Breakfast in Bed – Potato and Chorizo Frittata

Is there anything more luxurious than staying bed all morning and having a steaming breakfast delivered bedside?
 
One of my prerequisites for travel is that the hotel has room service delivery and good breakfast choices.  I love waking up to the aroma of strongly brewed coffee and fluffy scrambled eggs with a generous portion of bacon.  Heaven!
 
Here is a recipe to make for that special someone or the recipe to hand off to the person that will cook it FOR YOU.  Frittatas are great to serve in bed or at brunch or even for dinner.
 
The ingredients are really interchangeable so get creative!
 
The smokiness and slight bite of chorizo when combined with potatoes make this a hearty breakfast.  Try some star fruit or sliced guava on the side and don’t forget the coffee.  As a final treat and because you deserve it, have something sweet on hand – we recommend our Amuse-Bouche for today – the Colombian Truffle from Shocolaate!
