Bacon Cheese Frittata Recipes
Firstly line your baking dish with baking paper (it doesn’t have to be neat) and preheat your oven to 190°C/ Fan 180°C.
To cook the bacon, cover a baking tray in foil & evenly lay out the rashers. Place into the oven to cook until the fat is starting to crisp. (Approx 15-20 minutes.) Turn them all over after about 10 minutes to ensure even cooking.
Allow to cool for a few minutes then chop into rough pieces.
Next, beat together the milk & eggs in a large mixing bowl.
Then mix in the chopped bacon, 50g of the cheese, the chives & a good pinch of salt.
Next pour the mixture into your prepared dish. If you need to, spread the bacon pieces out a little with a fork.
Now scatter over the remaining 25g of grated cheese & dot the halved cherry tomatoes on the top facing upwards.
Finally, bake in your preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until it’s puffed up & golden on top.
If you are eating hot, simply allow to cool for a couple of minutes before slicing and serving with a side salad or some potatoes. Alternatively, you could allow it to cool completely in the dish then wrap up, refrigerate & take on your next picnic. The choice is yours!
You can’t tell me you’re not tempted by that… look at the beautiful colours, it’s so appetising! The great thing about this recipe is you can switch out any ingredient you or your guests aren’t happy with. Don’t like tomatoes? Swap it with some red peppers. Not a fan of bacon? How about some chicken instead? Always a crowd pleaser this one!
