This one happens to be Bacon and Pepperjack but there are other options in the notes section below.
This recipe was made in an 8" frying pan. If you don't have a small frying pan, a sauce pan will work but you probably shouldn't use the broiler at the end. If your pan/pot is 7" across, only use four eggs or it will be difficult to cook fully/evenly.
Fry 4 Slices of Bacon
While bacon is cooking, dice onions and red peppers.
Set aside cooked bacon and reserve one tsp of bacon grease, wipe out pan.
Add 1 tsp of bacon grease, onions, and peppers to pan (med heat) Cook until onions are translucent and just start to brown.
While cooking onions and peppers, remove stems and roughly chop 2 cups of spinach.
Add Spinach and bacon to the pan once onions start to brown. Stir occasionally
Break 5 eggs into a bowl and whisk well.
When spinach is wilted, turn heat to med low (2.5 on our stove.) It is better to err on having the temperature a little low than too high. (Or the eggs will over-brown on the bottom before they are fully cooked.)
Pour eggs into pan and stir just enough to combine. Don't over-stir or you will end up with scrambled eggs. Mix just enough so there are no big clumps of veggies.
Cover pan and let cook for 10 min. (Checking on it at about 8 min because not all stoves cook the same)
While Frittata is cooking shred your cheese.
If you have a broiler in your oven, set top oven rack on second shelf.
Check for browning around edges and if eggs are nearly set. (There may still be runny eggs in center that will be cooked while under broiler.)
When eggs are nearly set, sprinkle cheese over the top.
If you don't have a broiler, or if you are cooking in a pot (vs frying pan) at this point, turn off heat, (leave pan on burner) cover and let sit for five minutes to finish cooking the eggs on the top and melt the cheese.
If you DO have a broiler and are using a broiler-safe pan, turn broiler on and set to HI. Place pan under the broiler and WATCH IT. Once cheese is melted and bubbly, remove from broiler.
Remove frittata from pan. Cut in half, and serve.
