Paleo Frittata

I love egg dishes, and I really love frittatas!  They sound and look very fancy, but really- they are one of the easiest dishes to make.  I made my frittata for dinner actually, though most people would do this for a breakfast.  We love breakfast for dinner in my house though!  This is something you can personalize and make however you choose- any meats, veggies, toppings, etc.  Just like an omelet, you can do whatever your heart desires! It's a great healthy breakfast crowd-pleaser that you can eat any time of day.  Here is what I did:

Paleo Frittata
(serves 3-4)
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped (use sausage too if desired!)
  • 2 T onion, finely diced
  • 2 T bell pepper, finely diced
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • splash almond milk
  • OPTIONAL (not-Paleo): cheddar cheese, shredded
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.  Cook the bacon (or sausage) until crispy.  Remove to a paper-towel lined plate.  Remove the fat (or keep it if you want more flavor), and pour in a splash of olive oil.  Saute the veggies until cooked.  Add the bacon back to the pan and stir it around.  Turn the heat down to medium-low.

In the meantime, get your eggs whisked together in a bowl with a splash of almond milk, salt, and pepper.  Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and stir it all around to get the eggs fluffed up.  Let it sit on the stove for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, to get it cooking.

If you are being a cheater like me (because you can't live without cheese), sprinkle a wee little bit of cheese on top of the eggs.  If not, skip that step.  Place the entire skillet into the oven and cook until it is all puffed up, about 5 minutes.
Carefully remove the skillet, slice it up, and serve!

I would also recommend adding mushrooms, spinach, or whatever else you like.  This is quick and easy and tastes great!  (Especially if you use cheese... oops).  Regardless, a tasty breakfast meal!  Enjoy!
