Looking for a delicious, easy breakfast that could easily feed 6 people? I highly recommend this Bacon, Potato, and Spinach Frittata. It’s pure comfort food packed with protein (eggs), vegetables (spinach, potatoes) and flavor (bacon)!
This frittata is so easy to make! I used to be cautious about frittatas because I was afraid they would stick to the pan. Well, I fear no more – I discovered that as long as you cook the frittata on medium-low heat, it will not stick and will not burn. Just be patient and cook the frittata over medium-low heat as the eggs start to set around the edge of the skillet, for about 5 minutes. After that – just put the skillet with the frittata under the broiler and broil until the top is set and no longer wet. So easy, and your frittata is perfect:
Start by cooking the bacon:
Add spinach and cook it with bacon just until the spinach wilts:
Add already cooked and drained potatoes:
Pour the egg mixture over the top:
And cook the frittata on stove-top on medium-low heat until the edges separate from the pan. The center will still be moist and wet – put the skillet under the broiler for a couple of minutes and make sure not to burn yourself (use a glove).
And, here are the changes I made to the original BHG recipe:
1) The recipe calls for kale – I used spinach, and used about double the amount (4 cups fresh spinach or about 5 ounces). I skipped the onion altogether.
2) The recipe calls for red skin (skin-on) new potatoes – I used small yellow (skin-on) potatoes instead. Any potatoes will work, as long as they are small. If your potatoes are too large, don’t just quarter them as the recipe instructs – cut them into smaller pieces to fit your skillet.
3) As you can see on the photos, I used stainless steel skillet – even in the stainless steel skillet, my frittata did not stick. The key is to cook the frittata on medium-low heat, or on low heat. And, I did not even grease the skillet (aside from cooking the bacon in it). I just put all the ingredients in the skillet as you can see on the photos (bacon, spinach, potatoes), poured the egg mixture over the vegetables and cooked on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes (the center was still wet at that point, but the edges were already set), then broiled it for about 2 minutes until the center was no longer wet. Make sure to use a glove and do not burn yourself.
