FAQs about Frittatas

A frittata is a baked egg dish that incorporates ingredients mixed directly into the eggs and finished in the oven, whereas an omelette is a folded egg dish cooked quickly on the stovetop with fillings placed inside and folded over.

With a frittata, you could serve french toast, pancakes, fresh fruit, grits, oatmeal, mimosa, or sunrise cocktails.

Spinach and Bacon Frittata Ingredients

  • Eggs– Get the large or extra large size.
  • Spinach– I used baby spinach and left them whole. You could also get regular spinach and chop it.
  • Bacon– I used 4 slices, but recommend 6-7 slices if you love bacon.
  • Heavy cream– This will make it more rich, but you can opt for whole regular milk instead.
  • Cheese– I love smoked gouda, so I chose that and sharp cheddar cheese.
  • Mushrooms– You can get them whole or pre-sliced, but you’ll still want to chop them down.
  • Red Bell Pepper– you could also add orange for more color.
  • Cherry Tomatoes– this is optionally, but the burst of it when eating is amazing.
  • Salt and Pepper– to season eggs.

Instructions

  1. Preheat and Prep: Start by preheating your oven to 375°F. Shred 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup of smoked gouda. Chop mushrooms and bell peppers set aside. Slice cherry tomatoes into halves and quarter slices, set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream (or milk), salt, and pepper until well combined and set aside. Chop 4-6 slices of bacon, set aside.
  2. Cook the Bacon and Veggies: In an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spoon and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease. In the same skillet with the bacon grease, add the bell peppers and cook for a minute. Then add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Finally add the mushrooms and cook for another minute or two. Next add the bacon and spread the mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan and sprinkle half of each cheese on top.
  3. Assemble the Frittata: Reduce the heat to medium and add the egg mixture to the skillet. Allow it to cook undisturbed for a minute or two until the edges start to set. Add cherry tomatoes and sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over the top.
  4. Bake: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake the frittata for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top is golden brown.
