What screams Sunday more than Brunch. It's not exactly breakfast but it's not exactly lunch either. It's a perfect excuse to eat bacon, sausage and eggs at the same time as eating muffins and scones, all in the same sitting! No need to feel guilty when food like that is being served. I mean, you have to try everything right? Just to make sure it all tastes good.
If you're hosting a brunch, making a Frittata is the way to go. A Frittata is an egg dish in which you literally throw in anything you have on hand. Mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, ham or whatever you have lying around, feel free to throw it in. This is the perfect alternative to an omelet. Who really wants to stand at the stove during brunch making everyone omelets anyway?
I didn't really have that many vegetables on hand so my Frittata was made simple. What's more classic that bacon and cheese? I threw in some scallions for that oniony bite and some red bell peppers for texture. Now this is what I call an easy brunch item to make.
Frittata w/ Bacon, Scallions and Red Bell Pepper
Recipe by Me
½ cup milk
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
½ tsp pepper
¼ tsp salt
8 slices bacon, sliced into lardoons
4 scallions, slices on a bias
½ red bell pepper, diced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
In an oven safe sauté pan, begin to crisp up the bacon lardoons for about 5-10 min. While the bacon is crisping, crack 8 whole eggs into a bowl and add the milk, Parmesan cheese, pepper, salt, scallions and red bell peppers. Whisk together until combined.
Once the bacon is crisp, remove most of the fat out of the pan. Add the egg mixture directly into the pan with the bacon and mix. On a medium heat, cook for about 5 minutes until the edges begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Pop it into the oven and cook for an additional 15 min, or until a knife placed into the center comes out clean. Serve right out of the pan
