Oven Quiche (Frittata)

Quiche (Frittata) made with bacon, cheese, onion, and peppers
Ok. So, it's officially a frittata because there's no crust, but hey, tomAto tomato. The brilliance is that it's not simply scrambled eggs (again), that you throw it in the oven and forget about it, and that you can customize it however you want. Oh, and I always have left overs, so it does a good job feeding me at 6:50 in the morning when I'm suppose to be to class by 7.


8 eggs
6 strips of sugar free bacon, cooked and chopped
1 onion, chopped and sautéed
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 Tbs. chopped basil


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Cook the bacon in a frying pan until crisp. Pat the grease off and set aside to cool. Chop the onion and sauté until it begins to brown. Dice tomato, shred cheese, and chop the cooled bacon. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, including the eggs and basil, and whisk until it's evenly mixed. Pour into a nonstick 9" pie tin. Cook for 40-50 min or until the top is slightly browned.


*This recipe is completely versatile. If you don't like tomatoes, don't use them. Don't have an onion, no problem! Want mushrooms? Chop and sauté them first, then throw them in the mix! You do what you want, just make sure you have enough eggs (if you add more ingredients, up the eggs to 10)
*You can also use an 8"x8" pan if you don't have a pie tin.
*If you don't have sugar free bacon, you can "legally" use extra crisp sugar bacon once a week. I don't suggest it, especially because sugar free bacon is easy enough to find. Just look for "Low Sodium" bacon. Lots of name brands make this, just keep your eyes peeled.
