About This Recipe

We just got home from a short overnight trip. The drive was long, and we, obviously, ate out for every meal.

And, as usual for most trips, when we got home we were hungry. I was not about to eat out again, and frozen pizza is just not an option.

So I made a Baked Bacon Frittata.

This recipe should be in everyone’s repertoire. It takes just five ingredients – bacon, eggs, cream or milk, cheese, and butter – that everyone should have on hand. (If you’re a vegetarian, just leave out the bacon!). And it’s so easy and so satisfying.

A frittata is not like an omelet and it’s not like scrambled eggs. A frittata is baked or cooked in a skillet on the stovetop until the eggs are set and puffy. It’s easier to make than an omelet, which can be very finicky, and it is less hands-on work than scrambled eggs.

Perfect for two tired travelers.
