A Frittata is basically a baked omelet! There are several ways to put these little guys together… it’s 6-9 eggs (depending on how thick you want it) and any mixture of ingredients you’d like to throw in! Possible combo’s could be Swiss cheese, ham, and brocolli. Or maybe peppers, onions, and tomatoes. How about bacon, cheddar cheese, shallots, and spinach? This Spinach and Bacon Frittata recipe is great for weekend breakfasts, an easy and fun twist on an omelet!

My son, Jake, has always loved cooking… From a young age he’d get the eggs out of the fridge and scramble them ALL over the kitchen floor. He had such an egg fetish that we’d have to keep the fridge locked at all times! (He also loved to pour out the milk!!) Now that he’s 12 years old he’s a lot more help in the kitchen
We love Frittata’s and this Spinach and Bacon Frittata is a favorite of the whole family! Enjoy!
