Goat Cheese Frittata

star_onstar_onstar_onstar_onstar_on Comments (1)

The great thing about frittatas is that you can use whatever you have handy in the kitchen to create a scrumptious dish suitable to breakfast, lunch or dinner! This version features sauteed onions and peppers, bacon, Parmesan and goat cheese. This is easily doubled by using a 12" pan instead of a 6" and doubling ingredients. Note: if you want to make these "healthier" you can use egg whites instead of whole eggs.
