Recipe: Bacon Cheese Frittata

This is a basic recipe for a frittata. You can adjust the ingredients other than the egg mixture to what you would like to serve.

Really the ingredient combination is virtually limitless. When you do decide on your ingredients, take into account the other foods you plan to serve and the guests likes and dislikes.


To give you an idea…just about everybody likes a little onion, ham and grated Swiss Cheese (like a Quiche Lorraine)… many combinations are delicious…broccoli and cheese, ham and asparagus, mushroom, mild Cheddar Cheese and tomato (one of my favorites)… combinations that are delicious in omelets, will work well with a Frittata, but when choosing your ingredients, keep in mind picky eaters.

I like to use chives… they have a wonderfully light onion flavor and snipped chives over the top of a frittata make a terrific looking garnish.

I like to make the top look pretty...particularly if you are using sliced tomatoes… it will make a very professional look if you arrange them in a circle.

Another tip that you may find useful is that you can substitute “Egg Substitute” for the eggs very easily and use Fat Free Milk, it’s perfect for those people on restricted diets.

To change the flavors of your Frittata, keep the egg mixture the same and change the other ingredients to whatever combination you decide you want to serve.

Recipe:  Bacon Cheese Frittata

All you need:

Basic egg mixture:

6 eggs
½ cup milk
¼ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Dash of paprika

Other Ingredients:

¼ cup chopped green onion
5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

All you have to do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray the baking dish (pie plate or quiche dish) with cooking oil (butter flavor is preferred).

Then arrange the ingredients in the dish…. Make it look attractive…

Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients.

Bake the Fritatta for about 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Do not let the frittata brown too much on top, if you see yours browning, lay a piece of foil over it to keep it from getting too dark.

Allow time for the Frittata to set before attempting to cut it, about 5-7 minutes.
