Potato and Bacon Fritatta


Potato Bacon and Cheese Fritatta

This is something I have wanted to make for a while now, but haven't gotten around to doing it. Today when I was thinking about what I was going to make for dinner this popped in my head. I didn't want a very meaty meal but did want something with substance that would be satisfying. I LOVE breakfast for dinner. There is so much you can add to this recipe as far as veggies, etc. I made it simple for the kids. Add maybe some mushrooms, green peppers, green onions. I will definitely add green onions next time. This was really easy to make and only bakes for 15 minutes. 


1 large Russet potato or 2 smaller potatoes
1 pound of bacon chopped and cooked
1 medium onion
6 eggs
2 T. cream or milk (I used cream)
1 1/2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese or your choice of cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Garnish with avocado and tomato


Chop up your bacon and onions. In a skillet cook the bacon until done. When just about done push bacon to the side and add the onions until caramelized using the same grease (you can pour some out if there is to much). While these are both cooking thinly slice the potato(s) and cook them in the microwave for 5 minutes layered on the bottom of a casserole dish. When the bacon and onions are done drain the oil real good. Mix the bacon and onions together and sprinkle on top of the cooked potatoes. In a separate bowl mix together well the 6 eggs with the cream then pour on top of bacon and onions (next time I will add green onions at this point). Sprinkle desired amount of cheese on top and add a little salt and pepper. I garnished mine off with cut up avocados and tomatoes and served with cottage cheese. It was delicious!

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes depending on your oven.

 I would love to hear how you make this recipe your own and what additions you make. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. 


Thanks for stopping by!

    'hugs from afar'

  2. Lol Cher, sorry to make you drool. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the recipe, Dori. I found your blog because you linked to an article of mine (Mason Jar). I just wanted to say I really appreciate the link very much, and it has given me a little motivation to go ahead and give my site a makeover and add a lot more content. I started the site in 2011 and didn't think a single soul on the planet would use it. You've helped me to see otherwise. My picture isn't as good as yours, but it sure was good.

  4. I made this for dinner tonight so good! thanks dowi! ....katie
