"Make this frittata even easier by using cooked bacon from the freezer. It's a wonderful dish to serve at brunch or to take as leftovers for lunch."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Five stars for taste, ease of preparation and aesthetic appeal. So versatile! Add whatever you might put in an omelet or scrambled eggs. Great way to use up vegetables in the fridge too! In this case I browned the bacon, drained most of the grease, added finely chopped multi-colored bell peppers and onions, briefly sauteed that, then added it to my beaten eggs (which I just mixed with salt and pepper and half-and-half) along with some sliced black olives and garden fresh chives. I baked it in a pretty, shallow buttered casserole. No muss, no fuss, free to do other things while it baked, and it cut into individual servings perfectly. This will definitely be a re-do.
Very consistent each time, however I am not a fan of green onions, so I sprinkle some onion powder in with the egg mixture and also some dried minced onion. Always a winner!
I made this in my cast iron skillet. After I cooked the bacon, I saved some of the bacon drippings to cook the egg ingredients in. I did use lactose free milk and I cut the cheese back to a half cup only because my son is sensitive to milk. My sons and I liked this. I served this with my homemade waffles, which my kids used their frittata to make waffle sandwiches, and fruit salad.
I put the whole bacon package and 2/3 of the green onion package. Even my picky little son finished his whole plate.
Thanks for sharing.
I printed a recipe on 2/19/2012 called; Bacon Cheese Frittata. Just made it this morning for the 1st time. This recipe for a Bacon Cheese Frittata is exactly like the one from 2/19/12, which is not on AR anymore?? Regardless, this is the exact recipe submitted by someone else and it was delish! Easy and fast and DH loved it. I used Costco Precooked Bacon and used about 10 pieces. Nuked for 1.20 seconds on paper towels. Let cool and then crumpled. Stirred all ingredients in the pie dish once I had added them all. Will make this again!
Baked this easy breakfast/brunch recipe this morning. This recipe was the Recipe Group's selection for the week of 12/7/12. I HALVED PART OF THIS RECIPE. Last night, I microwaved six slices of bacon and tossed the bacon, onions and about 1/4 cup of green pepper into the food processor and pulsed for a few seconds and stored in the refrigerator. This morning, I prepared a 5" x 7" glass baking dish. I beat 3 eggs and 1/2 cup of milk, added the salt and pepper. Poured the egg mixture into the prepared baking dish and then sprinkled the bacon mixture over the top, followed by 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Baked for 30 minutes. Puffed up nicely and cut into nice firm pieces to serve. I'm glad I added the green pepper and next time I make it, I will add some garlic and maybe nutmeg. A dash of hot sauce would add to it as well. Overall, an excellent, versatile brunch/type recipe.
Made this tonight for a cheap dinner and loved it. Fast, easy, cooked perfectly (and I'm a sucky cook). I added a little extra bacon and exchanged the green onion for 1/2 cup of green pepper. This recipe will be much used in the future.
