Spinach Bacon Frittata

by Stephanie Suire on October 29, 2014

Spinach Bacon Frittata cover

This savory spinach and bacon frittata pulls double duty as a quick and easy weeknight meal and a satisfying breakfast.  One night last week, I filled the kitchen with the aroma of bacon frying in the pan, which attracted the attention of by my husband and the lab. My husband wanted to know why I was frying bacon for dinner (and when it would be ready to eat), while the dog was hoping I would drop some bacon on the floor (or grab a piece from the counter when my back was turned).

A frittata is so simple to make, just whisk together some eggs and milk then add a few veggies and seasonings. My favorite combination is spinach and bacon, I already had spinach in the fridge but you could also substitute chopped broccoli, green bell pepper or roasted red peppers. Carmelized onion and sun-dried tomatoes is also a good flavor combination. For dinner, serve with a simple green salad with a really good homemade vinaigrette dressing. For breakfast, I eat a slice with some wheat toast and black coffee.

Spinach Bacon Frittata

After I made the frittata last week, my husband declared that he needed to lose 10 pounds before Thanksgiving so he wanted the nutritional details. Umm, it’s eggs, bacon and cheese. Not really one of my healthier recipes.  So I am going to give you the recipe I created (which is delicious as it is), then give you an easy option to make it “healthier.”

To reduce the fat in the recipe above, I recommend using 4 whole eggs and 6 egg whites.  You could also reduce the cheese by 1/4 cup.

Do you enjoy eating “breakfast” for dinner? Do you have a dog that begs for food too?
