A frittata is the perfect dish to make for a large group of people. It looks gourmet and great, but lacks the stress involved in preparing a complicated multi-ingredient/multi-step dish. Once you’ve perfected a frittata, it’s the perfect vehicle to incorporate any other vegetables or proteins you have lying around in your kitchen.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 Large eggs, beaten

  • Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Stir in spinach, and cook for an additional minute or until it wilts.

Step 3:

  • Add bacon, tomato, pepper, salt and black pepper and cook, stirring constantly for two minutes. Add eggs and cheese, cook for 3-5 minutes gently lifting edges of Frittata with spatula and tilting pan so uncooked portion flows underneath.
