If you have ever heard of a frittata, you know it is a dish that combines eggs, vegetables, cheeses, and seasonings to create one fantastic dish. A mushroom bacon frittata is a great example of all of these ingredients coming together to create something extremely delicious.
Making a delicious mushroom bacon frittata is a relatively simple process that can be done in a few hours, with most of that time spent prepping the ingredients. That being said, it is well worth the effort, as the end result is a delicious meal that can be enjoyed as part of breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The ingredients you will need to make a delicious mushroom bacon frittata are: 8-10 eggs, 1/2 of a large onion, 4 ounces of bacon, 8 ounces of mushrooms of your choice, 1/2 cup of ricotta cheese, 4 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of diced, fresh red bell peppers, 2 tablespoons of fresh, chopped Italian parsley, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder.
Once you have all of the ingredients prepared, the process of making the frittata begins. First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Using a large skillet, heat up a tablespoon of butter or oil over medium heat. Once the fat is hot, add the bacon and cook until it begins to brown and crisp up. Then, add the onions to the skillet and cook for five minutes.
Next, add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook for four minutes. Once the mushrooms have softened, add the red bell peppers and parsley to the skillet and cook for one minute more. Then, add the garlic powder and onion powder and stir to combine.
Now transfer the ingredients to a baking dish that has been greased with butter or oil. Spread the ingredients around to ensure that they are evenly distributed.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, ricotta cheese, and parmesan cheese. Then, pour this egg mixture over the vegetables in the baking dish and spread it evenly to cover the vegetables.
Finally, bake the frittata in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until the eggs have set and the frittata is golden brown on top. If the top of the frittata begins to darken too quickly, lay a sheet of aluminum foil over the top for the final five minutes of baking.
Once done, let the frittata cool for five minutes before slicing and serving.
The mushroom bacon frittata is a delicious dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is packed full of flavor from all of the vegetables and cheeses, and the bacon adds a nice, salty, smoky flavor. This dish is a great way to mimic a meal from the restaurant in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy!
