Zucchini, Mushroom, and Bacon Frittata

Before we get started, I wanted to let you guys know I updated my recipe page to make it easier to look up recipes.  Hope you guys like it.  It is definitely much more organized.

I love breakfast for dinner.  In the case of the frittata, it could be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner depending what you pair it with.  For lunch or dinner I love to eat my frittatas with a salad.

Ingredients:

  • 3 strips bacon
  • 2 cups mushroom, sliced
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 zucchini, sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • pinch each salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • chopped parsley, to garnish

Directions:

  1. Cook bacon in medium sized skillet till done
  2. Set aside bacon on a paper towel to drain (make sure to leave bacon grease in pan)
  3. Preheat broiler
  4. Turn temperature to medium and add mushroom and shallot to skillet
  5. Cook until mushrooms are sautéed and shallots are caramelized 
  6. Add zucchini and cook for 3 minutes
  7. Meanwhile, beat the eggs, milk, and salt and pepper together until well combined
  8. Pour egg mixture into skillet and cook until the edges starts to set
  9. Gently pull back the edges all around the skillet so more eggs will fall into place – this will form a thicker “crust”
  10. When this edge is set, crumble bacon evenly over skillet 
  11. Sprinkle tomato and cheese on top
  12. Place skillet in broiler for 8-10 minutes till done
  13. Once done, garnish with parsley and serve
This dish should serve 4-6 people.  If you want to lighten it up, use turkey bacon.  Or if you want a meatless meal, feel free to take out the bacon and use oil or butter instead.  I love how versatile frittata’s can be. 
As long as we’re on the topic of cooking look at what I found at Costco.  I have yet to use it, but I needed a new grill pan since mine crapped out on me.  I have good feelings about this one.  Very Le Creuset-ish, right?  Last year, they had a dutch oven I waited to get marked down and it never did.  Lesson learned.  
My coconut decided to make me some eggs and coffee in his kitchen.  How sweet!  I think I have a little Bobby Flay/Michael Symon on my hands.
