Goat Cheese, Bacon, And Zucchini Frittata

by Matt on September 16, 2010

Last week, disowned me after I made “fake bacon”. I spent all day trying to think a way to redeem myself, so I came up with this:

Eggs 012

Believe it or not, this was my first time actually making a frittata. I love eggs, but I usually make them fried, scrambled with cheese, or made into an omelet. The egg is a nutritional powerhouse and can be prepared in a snap. If I ever need a quick meal, eggs are one of my go to ingredients because of it’s simplicity and overall variety.

Last night, I tried something new.

While this meal isn’t one of the healthiest I have ever created, it was delicious and quick, which was exactly what I needed last night.

I also wanted some cheese and bacon.

This was a reminder that cheese, bacon, and eggs should ALWAYS be combined.

I giggled at your last line. When bacon, eggs, and cheese are combined, isn’t there some kind of synergistic effect that removes all the cholesterol/saturated fat and just leaves the protein, calcium, and nutrients? Right…? Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part, haha. Fritatta looks outstanding.

I will say this: The bacon, egg, and cheese combination was created by the gods.

eggs = my go-to meal, too. and i think that anything prepared at home is usually a lot better than eating out!

goat cheese sounds like a perfect topping!

I love eggs for easy meals. I’m almost positive they’re on the menu tonight in the SCR household… :)

And bacon = love

I’ve never made a frittata- though I keep saying I want to try it. I’m like you with keeping it simple by scrambling the majority of the time.

Oh this looks yummy! But then again, I am particularly biased when there is goats cheese involved ;)
