Easy Frittata Recipe


Frittatas are a super simple, quick thing to make when you have no inspiration and a seemingly random assortment of things in the fridge, or, I suppose also with intentional ingredients you planned to put in a fritatta. As you can put almost anything in it, I’ll put an asterisk next to the ingredients you definitely need, otherwise feel free to experiment with what I used or your own combinations!

Prep time:Β 10-15 minutes

Cook time:Β ~15-20 minutes

Serves:Β 2-4


6 or more eggs* (depending on the number you’re feeding and how many other things you’re putting in the dish)

Half an onion

3 strips of bacon (or other meat/protein)

Half a bell pepper (or other vegetable, zucchini would be good)

1 Serrano pepper (for spice)

1 1/2 cups spinach (or other greens)

Salt & pepper*


Preheat oven to 500 and heat an oven-safe skillet over medium heat on the stove.

Add bacon to the skillet and cook until done. I like using bacon because then I can use the yummy bacon fat to cook the veggies in.

While the bacon is cooking, whisk the eggs in a bowl with some salt and pepper and chop up whatever veggies you are using.

Drain bacon on a paper towel but keep the fat in the pan. Add the chopped onions and peppers/ other vegetables.

Cook until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes, then add spinach and let wilt. Add chopped bacon back in.

Pour whisked eggs into skillet, and mix together with bacon/veggie mix. Let it cook on the stove for 2-3 minutes, until the edges are set but the middle is still wet.

Edges set & ready to go in the oven

Put the skillet into the preheated oven and cook 3-5 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the whole fritatta is set and bounces back slightly when touched. Cut and serve hot!
