Ingredients (serves 8):
- 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
- 3-4 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
- 8 eggs
- 2 Tbsp heavy cream (could substitute with a non-dairy option or omit completely)
- 1 cup shredded cheese (Parmesan or Jack cheese work great; can also use dairy-free option or omit completely)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 425°F
- In a medium bowl, scramble eggs with cream until light and fluffy. Add salt & pepper. Add in chopped veggies and bacon.
- Grease OVEN SAFE pan with butter or non-stick spray. Pour egg mixture into pan and let cook until sides start pull away from the pan (approx. 5-10 minutes).
- Put entire pan in oven (MAKE SURE IT IS OVEN SAFE!) to continue cooking (approx. 10 minutes). The frittata is done when the egg mixture no longer jiggles if you shake the pan (NOTE: DON’T FORGET YOUR OVEN MIT! THE PAN WILL BE EXTREMELY HOT).
- When frittata is cooked, take out of oven and sprinkle with cheese. Change oven setting to BROIL. Place pan back in oven and broil for approx. 5 minutes (until cheese is bubbly on top).
- Take out of oven and cut into 8 slices. Enjoy!
We find the key to extra fluffy eggs is to add a splash of dairy (cream, half and half or milk) and then whip the eggs up with an electric hand mixer, blender or stick blender to really work some air into the mixture!
