Potato, Bacon and Sour Cream Frittata


If you are wondering what to make for breakfast, look no further.  This is an easy way to get that morning meal on the table and it’s perfect for Sunday brunch.

The bacon and potato mixed with the eggs give this dish a hearty taste and will leave you satisfied to tackle the day.

Serve with a side of fruit and be on your way!

In a 12″ cast-iron skillet or oven-proof frying pan, cook bacon over medium-low until crispy.  Place on a paper towel-lined plate.  Set aside.  In same pan, cook potato in bacon fat over medium-high until browned and tender, 5 minutes.  Remove and let cool.

In a bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper, add reserved bacon and cooled potatoes.  Preheat oven to broil, placing a rack 6 inches from heat.

Heat reserved bacon fat in pan over medium.  Add egg mixture, reduce heat to low, and cook 6 minutes.  Drop in small amounts of sour cream and top with cheese.

Broil for 2 minutes or until eggs are set.  Sprinkle with scallions.

    Great work. I love the thin style frittata. The thick ones are boring to me now.
