Prep

  1. Bell peppers / Onions - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Mushrooms - Slice mushrooms (if not pre-sliced). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  3. Eggs - Whisk eggs with salt and pepper.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. While oven heats, heat a 10.5” to 12” (26 cm to 30 cm) oven-safe skillet with oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are golden brown and very tender, ~8 minutes.
  3. To mushrooms, add onions and bell peppers and continue cooking until onions are soft, 3 to 4 minutes more. Season with some salt.
  4. Pour eggs over vegetables and stir to combine everything.
  5. Transfer frittata to oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. (Frittata is done when eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.)
  6. When frittata is nearly finished, heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and fry on both sides until crisp, ~8 minutes total. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  7. Slice frittata into wedges. Serve with bacon on the side. Enjoy!

A lighter meal but still very good. I sometimes find egg based meals can be bland, but this one had good flavor

I'm pretty sure this was user error, but we did not like this at all.

This was a winner on Christmas morning, thanks CS! Cooked bacon ahead and then added to the casserole. Added a strawberry/banana "candy cane" to the plate. And had the bloody marys without alcohol and ate a ton of celery.
