Ingredients

  • large eggs
  • 1/4  cup  heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Half medium onion cubed
  • ½ cup mushrooms sliced
  • cup  shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup cooked bacon cut into small pieces
  • ½ cup bread cut into cubes
  • fresh parsley sprigs for serving optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven.
  • In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, add oil and sauté onions and mushrooms over medium heat until tender and lightly browned. For about 4-6 minutes.
  • Add the cooked bacon pieces and mix well. Then spread them into an even layer.
  • Add the bread cubes and cheese on top, and distribute evenly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and salt.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the cheese. Tilt the pan if needed so that egg mixture can settle evenly over the cheese. Cook for about 2 minutes until you see the egg mixture at the edges of the pan start to set.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and garnish with optional parsley. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

1. Cream makes the frittata extra fluffy. You can substitute with milk for a healthier option.
2. If you need to cook your bacon, you will need about 4-5 slices of raw bacon. Add them to the cold skillet, and turn the heat to medium-high. Stir occasionally until crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove the bacon to a plate covered with paper towel.
3. I used 10-inch nonstick skillet, if you use a larger skillet, your frittata will be shallower and require shorter cooking time.
4. I love adding bread to my frittata to make it extra hearty. You can substitute with potatoes or other vegetables.
