Eggs are fantastic for any meal, even dinner. Fritatas, specifically, are a great option for lunch or dinner. Especially if you are making it for a family.

Normally eggs can be very fussy when you are making more than one serving. Everyone wants to eat at the same time, but the eggs aren’t done at the same time.

A fritata solves this by cooking all of the eggs at the same time.

Fritatas are also a great option for using up leftover meats and vegetables. Simply replace the bacon and mushrooms in this recipe with sliced cooked beef, chicken or pork. It can also be made without meat. Just bulk up the vegetables.

This recipe does not include added salt because of the bacon. If you are using low sodium bacon, add 1/4 tsp of salt to the egg mixture. You could also just add salt to taste when serving.

Wait for the edges to be visibly brown, and the eggs almost fully set. If the bottom is cooking too fast, turn down the heat a little.

Turn the stove element off. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the fritata. Move the oven-safe skillet into the centre of the preheated oven (use an oven mitt if the handle is hot). Allow to cook until the cheese is melted and slightly browned - about 15 minutes.
