A-B-C Frittata from The Whole Family Cookbook by Michelle Stern
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated (I used shredded daiya, a dairy-free “cheese”)
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 apples, Fuji or Gala (I used only one apple, but use two)
1 tablespoon butter (I used olive oil)
Prehead over to 450 degrees. Crack 8 eggs into a bowl. Separate two remaining eggs and add whites to the bowl. Beat eggs. Add half of the cheese and the salt and pepper to the egg mixture. Cook bacon then let it cool. Peel and core an apple. Slice thin. Melt butter in skillet. Add egg mixture, crumble bacon over egg mixture. Add apple slices in a circular pattern. Add the rest of the cheese on top. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from pan.
(I modified the recipe. First, daiya is great, but not when it’s over-used. I used less and only baked it in. I didn’t want any on top. Second, I used only one apple because I was feeling lazy. Use two apples. Third, I don’t have an oven-proof skillet so I used a casserole dish. Lastly, I skipped the butter and went with olive oil due to our dairy issues.)
It was a huge hit with my husband and my son. But we did have enough left over to send some in our lunches!
