Frittata with apples, eggs, meat, and cheese

I made this yummy frittata for breakfast this morning and Mark loved it! The apples go really well with the bacon and cheddar and give it a nice sweetness. I love a good breakfast I can throw in the pan and then let cook while I have my quiet time before the girls awake. I made the bacon in the oven the night before while cooking dinner so it was a snap to throw together in the morning. Many thanks to Simple Bites for a great recipe!

  • 2 egg whites (I skipped this part because I don't like to waste my yolks!)
  • 8 whole eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt, to taste
  • 3 slices bacon
  • Ground Pepper, to taste
  • 2 apples, Fuji or Gala
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
In a medium cast-iron or nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Crack the eggs, one at a time, over a small bowl. Add half of the grated cheese to the egg mixture and stir to combine. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, to your liking. Add egg mixture to the skillet. Sprinkle the bacon crumbles evenly over the eggs. Gently arrange the apples on top of the egg mixture, in a circular pattern. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Move the skillet from the stovetop to the upper rack of your oven. Bake until frittata is firm in the center and cheese is browned, about 20 minutes. Use a flexible spatula to loosen the frittata from the pan. Carefully slide it onto a cutting board. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing into wedges.Put the rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat oven to 450°F.
