Bacon-Crusted Frittata

Print Friendly


I love me a good frittata. I don’t think I’ve ever had one I loved as much as this one. I decided to make the bottom a bacon “crust,” and it was amazing! You could add more bacon for a thicker crust if desired. Without further adieu, here’s my Bacon-Crusted frittata!
