I love eggs but sometimes the same old scramble gets kind of boring. This is when my family turns to the beloved frittata. Making a frittata is easy, can be made a million ways, can feed a crowd, and makes eggs exciting again! Here is one of my favorite frittata recipes:
6 bacon strips
1 diced red bell pepper
1 diced medium red onion
2 big handfuls of fresh spinach
6-8 scrambled eggs
In a large saute pan, saute bacon and veggies in olive oil until bacon is crisp and veggies are tender. Spread bacon and veggie mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan. Turn up the heat until the layer is sizzling hot and then pour the eggs evenly over the mixture. Turn heat down to low and cover for 8-10 minutes or until the eggs are cooked through. Slice like a pie and serve!
This looks absolutely delicious! I can’t wait to try it. I didn’t know that bacon was allowed on the paleo plan. Do you have to get a specific type?
When I eat bacon, I consider this part of my fat intake and we buy the uncured bacon from Trader Joe’s that has no chemical nitrates or nitrites.
Sarah! I love this, and now I have dinner planned for tonight. I am going to add broccoli too.
Heard you on Robb Wolf’s podcast, you were outstanding! Those boys need more females to share the airwaves, it was refreshing to here a mom speak about feeding kids.
HI Debbie! Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy the frittata! : )

I made it this morning. I added sun dried tomatoes and a few roma tomatoes, garlic and used turkey bacon from Trader Joes instead. I loved it! Thanks so much!
