Bacon or Ham With Spinach & Cheese

Real Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

True. I introduced my customers to this Frittata many years ago. Yes, I know. I'm getting on in years.  :-)

Today it remains a favorite restaurant breakfast recipe.

The recipe (using bacon or ham) has been requested many times.

And just like omelets or breakfast scrambles, these egg dishes can be enjoyed for any meal. Add fresh fruit or a salad and some crusty bread or a muffin.  :-)

Did you know? A Frittata is an egg-based Italian-style dish similar to an omelet or crustless quiche.

The Italian word frittata derives from friggere and roughly means fried.
