Spinach and Bacon Frittata
I finally did it! I tried the Frittata, and it was actually really good! The reason I was hesitant to make a Frittata is because all of the recipes I have seen for it use anywhere between 6-12 eggs. This may seem healthy to some, but not to me when I struggle with high cholesterol, making a dish with that many eggs is not going to happen. So, I compromised!
- 3 Eggs
- 3 Egg Whites Only
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- 1 Cup Frozen Spinach, Thawed
- 1 Large Baking Potato, Peeled and Grated
- 1/2 Package of Cooked Bacon Crumbles
- 4oz Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
- 1 Tsp Minced Onion
- 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Preheat oven to 375*.
Preheat oven to 375*.
In a small bowl beat the eggs, egg whites, and milk.
In a large skillet pour in olive oil and grated potato. As this starts to simmer add in garlic powder and minced onion and let simmer for 10 more minutes. Then, add in frozen spinach, bacon crumbles, and reduced fat cream cheese. Mix this up and continue cooking until the cheese has melted.
Pour the skillet mixture into a greased 9 inch pie pan, and pour the egg and milk mixture over the top.
This will bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked. Many recipes say to put an oven safe skillet into the oven; however, I preferred to use a pie pan instead. This served 6 and was a very affordable breakfast dish!
