I found this on the back of a box of Morning Star Farms "bacon" strips. I added one (7 oz) can chopped green chilies and I used sharp cheddar cheese instead of the regular. I also have used a can of green beans in place of the broccoli, but cut them up. We loved it. I always make this when my mom, who is a vegetarian comes to visit. Although it is a vegetarian bacon substitute, once it's mixed in and baked, it still has that satisfying bacon flavor and it's hard to tell that it really isn't bacon. YUM.
- 1 (5 1/4 ounce) packagefrozen vegetarian bacon, strips (I use Morning Star Farms brand and only 1/2 the pkg.)
- 1 cup broccoli, in tiny bite size floretts
- 3⁄4 cup sliced white button mushrooms
- 5 green onions, finely chopped using tops and a little bit of the green bottoms
- 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine

- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper (or more to your taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to your taste)

- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used sharp)
- 1⁄2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 1⁄2 cup chopped tomato (I used 3/4 cup)

Definitely worth every star! I thought the seasonings were perfect (added 1/2 t. salt). Great flavor! Didn't have broccoli, so I used frozen cauliflower instead plus the other veggies as called for, and it worked great. Also used 1/2 c. sharp cheddar because that's all I had, and about 1/2 c. mozarella plus the 1/2 c. parmesan the recipe calls for. This was delish! My hub couldn't stop raving about it. I didn't use bacon, but that would be delicious. Instead of sour cream, I served home-made guacamole with it. YUM! Thanks for sharing, Granny! This will be my base frittata recipe for sure.
