What is a frittata? A cheesy, eggy, mixture of anything in your fridge! As long as you have eggs on hand, you can have a frittata in less than an hour! Obviously we have eggs! Clearly we have all kinds of meats and veggies! Now all we have to do is keep it simple!
Without a doubt, once you make this, it will be a fan favorite! And let your family in on the fun! Unlike making pancakes, where there are exact measuring, a frittata can be a little of this, and a little of that. So make 2 and let the fam pick the add ins!
- 10 Large Eggs
- 3 Tablespoons Sour Cream
- 8 grinds fresh ground pepper
Ingredients for the add ins:
- 20 cherry tomatoes sliced in half (heirloom, if you can find them!)
- 10 slices bacon, sliced into small strips, and fried (We had some already in our fridge, cooked!)
- 6 oz. fresh spinach, roughly chopped
- ½ cup freshly grated sharp cheese (don’t buy pre-grated!)
- ½ cup freshly grated gouda
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Heat oven to 375 F
- Slice tomatoes, in half, sprinkle with salt, and allow to sit
- Using a 12 inch cast iron skillet, fry the bacon, drain, set aside.
- Whisk eggs, sour cream, & pepper
- Wipe out the bacon drippings, and add butter to cast iron, and heat up
- Pour in egg mixture
- Let cook for 1 minute, do not stir
- Sprinkle cheddar cheese over egg mixture
- Sprinkle bacon in next
- Add spinach, pushing down into egg mixture
- Sprinkle gouda cheese over spinach
- Arrange the tomatoes on top, cut side down
- Season with several grinds of black pepper
- Bake for 25 minutes, turning half way thru
- When golden brown, and eggs are slightly firm remove from oven
- Allow to sit for at least 5 minutes
- Can be served warm, and delicious cold next day in lunch!
A well seasoned cast iron is the best pan to use for a frittata.
