I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas around here.
Sure, I have some tried and true favorites that I make often, and you do too! Remember these breakfast quesadillas, that baked banana bread oatmeal and these cinnamon sugar french toast sticks? Delicious!
So when I stumbled across new Kiolbassa Smoked Meats at Meijer, I knew I found another winner for breakfast. Yep, you guessed it…this easy frittata recipe!
Kiolbassa Dry Cured Bacon is loaded with delicious flavor. Most bacon on the market is full of water and chemicals. But Kiolbassa bacon is dry-cured. They apply a spice blend to each pork belly before curing it for up to ten days. The result is wonderful flavor and thick, meaty bacon. Mmm mm good!

How to make Bacon and Tomato Frittata:
This bacon tomato frittata is incredibly easy to make and can be ready in about 45 minutes. It’s perfect for when you need breakfast ready for brunch, your family, or even dinner.
- To start, cook the Dry Cured bacon in a large skillet until crisp and brown, and then remove to another plate and set aside.
- In the same skillet, sauté some mushrooms until tender, and then add in some fresh baby spinach and stir to wilt.
- When mushrooms are cooking, whisk the eggs, milk, seasonings, and cheese together.
- Pour the egg mixture into a prepared pan, along with bacon and mushroom mixture. Add some cherry tomatoes on top and let the oven work its magic.
Can I make a frittata the night before?
Absolutely! This easy breakfast frittata is the best make-ahead dish for busy mornings. Simply make this dish from start to end, and then refrigerate once cooled. The refrigerated frittata can last for up to five days before serving. And that means you can have breakfast ready for most of the week.
How do you know when the frittata is done?
Cut a small slit into the center of the frittata. If the egg runs into the cut, you will need to bake it longer. If the eggs are set (and not runny), the frittata is ready.
Can I freeze a frittata?
You sure can! This bacon spinach tomato frittata will last roughly three months in the freezer. When ready to serve, let thaw and then reheat in the microwave or oven.
Can I reheat a frittata?
Yes! You can reheat this tomato frittata in the microwave or oven (set oven to350°F). Keep in mind that the eggs are already cooked, so you don’t want to overcook the eggs again.
Variations of Bacon and Tomato Frittata:
Add more veggies! Toss in some asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli or onions for even more flavor.
Experiment with different cheese! Gouda, feta, asiago, or goat cheese would pair beautifully in this frittata recipe.
Use different seasonings or fresh herbs! A touch of basil, thyme, or rosemary would complement this frittata.
