Cheesy Bacon Spinach Frittata

For a while now our family has had a love affair with “the frittata” aka the Breakfast Pizza {as we call it in our house}. So you can imagine I have made my fair share.

Over the many times I’ve made frittatas, both good and bad. I’ve found the trick to a good frittata is to keep the heat at a constant temperature the entire time you are cooking. Once you cook the veggies and add the egg mixture your instant tendency might be to turn the heat down so you didn’t burn the eggs.

Don’t do it!

I know its tempting, but if you do its that much longer in the oven because the eggs have to set before you serve this delicious egg concoction! Nobody wants oozy runny frittata! Gross!

Ok, on a side note as I’m giving you my little tip all that keeps playing in my head is that line Harrison Ford says in the movie “Morning Glory”

“the trick it a good frittata is….”

And I digress!

Today I thought I’d give you one more brunch recipe before Easter weekend hits … you know … just for good measure!

This Cheesy Bacon Spinach Frittata is filled with all my favorite veggies – spinach, roasted red peppers, and cherry tomatoes. And of course why not add a little bacon!?

Bacon just makes everything better, right!

I don’t know why I don’t add bacon more often! {or just sit and snack on its crispy goodness while I’m watching a movie … hehe}

Sometimes I feel like bacon gets a bad rap. Its not that horrible people, in fact, do you know that bacon is used alot in the Paleo Diet! Bacon and bacon grease! Yup… thats right don’t just throw that stuff away pour it into a bowl and save it to use as a flavoring for later!

Ok, back to the frittata! So, we have all my favorite veggies, bacon, the tip of keeping it at the same temperature!

Then I sprinkled it with creamy crumbled goat cheese right at the end. Mmmmmmm…..

All the flavors – from salty to sweet and creamy tangy cheese go perfectly together! Its a great EASY breakfast recipe that your family will love!

Plus it keeps really well, we’ve had it the next day for dinner and it still tastes just as good!

    1. I used a ScanPan Classic Nonstick Skillet from Sur La Table – it is oven safe. A cast-iron skillet would be another great option.

    1. Definitely make sure you use two pans. 🙂 Honestly you gonna have to just make it twice but you can easily make it side by side.

  1. I am making this today – can’t wait to try it! What is your preferred method of reheating the leftover frittata? Or do you eat it at room temperature? Thanks!

    1. Hey Kate, I hope you enjoy it! I usually eat it right out of the oven. But if you have some left over and eat it the next day I just warm it up in the microwave. 🙂

  2. Most excellent recipe! I did not have tomatoes and peppers, so improvised with onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Frittata was great. The cooking tips were right on target and I did resist temptation to reduce heat on burner. Served with orange slices, kiwi slices, nutbread drizzled in honey. Brunch!

    1. That’s what I love about this recipe, it’s so versatile, as long as you have the basics for how to make a frittata you can add whatever you want.

      PS wish I was there for that awesome brunch lineup! YUM!

    1. I haven’t tried it yet but yes you probably could. It may be a little dry but it will still be good. 🙂

  3. Made for dinner tonight. Delicious! With side salad and crispy Italian bread. So easy and fast. Keeper.

  4. Thanks for this awesome recipe Krista! I now know what we’ll have for Easter brunch! And maybe a little extra vegetarian bacon (I can’t remember the brand name right now, but it’s really good and healthier than regular bacon) Happy Easter!

  5. Great recipe, I will definitely be trying it out. I am guilty of turning the heat down when eggs go in the pan so I will take your advice next time. Thanks Krista!

    MMM… this looks like my kind of breakfast, Krista! OR breakfast for dinner. 😉

    1. Thanks Ashlyn! This is totally one of recipes that can be devoured for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

  7. I love left over frittatas! Great cooking tips too, I’ll have to remember to keep it at an even temperature. I was probably one who would worry about burning my eggs.

    Is it weird that I have NEVER made a Frittata? I have definitely eaten them, just not attempted one at home.
    But you said bacon, and cheese…and eggs. Which are my love language. I might just need to put on my frittata making pants for these! Pinned!
