Bacon Cheese Frittata

Every Sunday morning, as the sun gently peeked through the curtains, I was awakened by the sizzle of bacon and the faint whispers of laughter from the kitchen. My mother, a culinary genius in my eyes, would be concocting her legendary Bacon Cheese Frittata. It wasn’t just the tantalizing aroma that made it special; it was the stories shared, the laughter echoed, and the memories created around that dining table. Once, when our neighbors, the Martins, had an unexpected power outage, we invited them over for brunch. Mrs. Martin still raves about that frittata to this day, claiming it’s the best she’s ever had.

Though many dishes have come and gone through our family’s culinary repertoire, the Bacon Cheese Frittata remains timeless. A perfect blend of crispy bacon, creamy cheese, and soft, fluffy eggs, this dish has been a family favorite for generations and is sure to be cherished for many more to come.

How to Prepare Bacon Cheese Frittata

Ingredients for Bacon Cheese Frittata

  • 5 strips of crispy bacon
  • 6 wholesome large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1 cup hand-shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions for Bacon Cheese Frittata

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and slightly oiling a 7×11-inch oven-friendly dish.
  2. In a skillet, cook the bacon strips over medium-high heat. Flip them now and then, ensuring they turn a beautiful golden-brown shade. Once done, lay them on paper towels to drain the excess oil and then crumble them.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, salt, and pepper. Once blended, pour this mixture into your previously prepared baking dish.
  4. Evenly spread the chopped green onions and the crumbled bacon over the mixture. Finish by generously layering the Cheddar cheese on top.
  5. Allow it to bake in the preheated oven. Check its doneness by inserting a knife around the center – it should come out clean after about 25 to 30 minutes.

Can I use a different type of cheese?

Of course! While Cheddar cheese adds a distinct flavor, you can experiment with other types like Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, or even Feta, depending on your preference.

How can I store leftover frittata?

Let the frittata cool to room temperature, then wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Can this frittata be made vegetarian?

Yes, simply skip the bacon or replace it with a vegetarian alternative. You can also add more vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms for added texture and flavor.

Is there a dairy-free alternative for milk in the recipe?

You can use almond milk, soy milk, or any other non-dairy milk of your choice. Just ensure it’s unsweetened to maintain the dish’s savory profile.

How do I ensure my frittata is fluffy and not dense?

The key is to whisk the eggs properly, introducing air into the mixture. Also, ensure your oven is at the right temperature and avoid overbaking.

Can I add other seasonings to the recipe?

Absolutely! Feel free to sprinkle in some herbs like rosemary, thyme, or parsley, or even some red pepper flakes for a kick!
