Mediterranean Breakfast Frittata!

by ash10

Now this is a fun, fresh alternative to the usual omelet or scrambled eggs!


7 Eggs (beaten)
1/4 Cup Milk
2 Cups Spinach
1 Shallot (chopped)
1/2 Bell Pepper (chopped)
1 Jalapeno (chopped)
7 strips of Bacon (we used Turkey Bacon, you can also add sausage if you prefer.)
Finely Shredded Italian Cheese
Feta Cheese

First, cook the bacon and/or sausage in the same oven-safe pan you’ll use to cook the Frittata! We used an Le Cruset Enamel Casserole Dish as it can be used from the top of the stove to the oven. Once your bacon is nice n crispy, remove it from the pan and save the renderings and bits from the bacon and/or sausage to cook the remaining items. Cook the chopped the bell pepper, onion, and garlic in the same pan and preheat your oven on broil. Cook these veggies until they’re a little soft.

Once the above veggies have cooked, add the spinach and cook until soft. Stir constantly to prevent burning.

Season the beaten eggs to taste, of course I used our House Blend. Crumble the bacon and add it to the pan. Don’t crumble the bacon to small, you want to be able to see them in your finished product!

Stir your ingredients to ensure it is evenly distributed. Next, pour in the beaten eggs make sure that all ingredients are evenly distributed in the pan. Once eggs have been added, continue cooking on the stove top for about 5-7 minutes over medium heat. DO NOT STIR or you’ll have scrambled eggs. DO lift the sides of the cooked eggs to allow the uncooked portion to run underneath to prevent the center of the Frittata from a runny center.

Once most of the Frittata has cooked underneath, but not burned, add a thin layer of the shredded cheese of your choice (we used an Italian blend) and a little Feta cheese (if you are feeling creative, add some diced olives with the Feta Cheese to give it an awesome Mediterrean flavor!). Put your Frittata in the oven, on the middle rack for about 5 minutes for a nicely browned and fluffy end result!

Once your Frittata has cooled for a minute, use a spatula to loosen the edges of the Frittata from the pan or dish. If possible, slide the Frittata out of the pan, or turn the casserole dish upside down over a cutting board. Then turn it right side up onto your serving dish!

You can cut it like pie or pizza and serve it with salsa, sour cream, and/or guacamole. We have great recipes salsa and guacamole as well, so stay tuned!! Serve while its still warm and we promise everyone will enjoy your new breakfast alternative.
