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.

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

AWESOME! 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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

I made this recipe for the first time today but in my opinion along with my husband's opinion it is a keeper. I had some eggs that needed to be used before house sitting so I ended up using 10 eggs adjusting the amount of mile to 1 and 2/3 cup of 2% milk but I didn't double the butter. It still came out awesome and fluffy. I did adjust some of the of the additives however I used: 1/2 of a yellow onion (diced) 1 red pepper (diced) 2 Tbs. of hot paprika 6 slices of bacon total It went into the oven in a 13x9 baking pan for only 25 minutes. A nice and easy way to start off our rainy Sunday morning. Read More

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. Read More

This hit the spot! I had about a half a pound of mushrooms that needed using so I sliced them up and fried them after frying the bacon. Otherwise followed the recipe and mixed the eggs and milk in the blender. I baked for 30 minutes and it is perfect!! Read More
