Frittatas are a marvelous way to give leftovers a boost at breakfast, brunch or supper. Use leftover beef, pork, or chicken, or even canned tuna. Of course you can always do an all-veggie frittata. Avocado slices add wonderful color and flavor. You’ll see why Chileans regularly use them as a condiment.
