Jolean's Company Baked Egg Frittata

"My mom rarely cooked us breakfast, but when we had company she went "all out". This is a very simple recipe. There are probably lots of similar ones out there, but this one is dear to my heart because it was TRULY a "special occasion" whenever my mom made this. I still love it to this day, although I've embellished it plenty from time to time--YUM! Note for Zaar World Tour II: Frittatas are Italian in origin."

Ready In:




  • Fry bacon until crisp, then remove strips and drain. Crumble bacon.
  • Whisk all other ingredients together except cheese, and pour into an 8x8-inch greased glass pan.
  • Sprinkle bacon and cheese evenly over top.
  • Bake in a preheated 400°F oven for 20 minutes, watching so that it does not get too brown.
  • Garnish with chopped, fresh parsley.
  • I serve it with Pillsbury crescent rolls, butter and honey.

    Made for Easter Egg Hunt Tag. This was a quick and easy dinner. The only thing that I would do different would be to not add the salt as ours was plenty salty. Other than that this was good and I would make it again. Will be trying it next time with sausage instead of bacon. Thanks for posting this Stacky!

    This was a very good recipe. Nice and simple! I think the amounts suggested were perfect and it turned out very well. The only reason I'm not rating it higher, is because I thought it could stand a bit more flavor. Thank you. :-)

    This was a really easy & yummy recipe. My family really liked it, and I liked how easy it was. I used 2% milk and low-fat cheddar cheese. To make things easier, I used the pre-cooked bacon & cut it into bits with my kitchen shears. I forgot to add the green onion until I had the frittata already assembled, so I just sprinkled it on top. It was great! Thanks.

    Excellent. Whipped it up for guests at brunch and it was a big hit. We used chorizo sausage which worked well.

    This was yummy but I had to bake it for 25 minutes in a 450 degree oven. I used 1% milk (3/4 cup)and ham instead of bacon. I also put in mushrooms.

    Wunderbar!!! I have made this twice in the last 3 days! Whipped it up quickly last nite for DS who has high school state tests today for his energy breakfast. Both times I just used 2% milk and whatever meat (ham, bacon or sausage) I have already cooked in the freezer and whatever cheese is leftover in the fridge! Today we cut this into squares and put in on toasted bagels for the kids to take on the way to school. I also used snipped chives instead of the green onions for todays special. I found it freezes well in squares too and reheats like a dream, a great thing for me to grab out of the freezer on my way to work and heat up in the micro for a quick breaky at my desk. THANK YOU STACY...this one is the bomb!!!


Editor's Note: Sadly Stacky5 passed away on Monday, October 20, 2008. Hi! My name is Stacy, and I'm a single Mom who works full-time with 4 kids ranging from ages 9 to 21, a brand new granddaughter named Faith, and a cat named Pubert (we call him Pube) who is also my kid... That's his photo as my icon. Oh, and a new kitten that the kids named "KeeKee" but who I call Little Kitteh. I love them with all my heart! Even though I don't have my parents anymore, their presence is always felt and their love has resonated in my life, even after all this time. You'll find a lot of my posted recipes that refer to "Jolean" --- and that's my Mom. :) I sure do miss her... I love music, especially 70's music, cats, incense & lavalights, candles, and I love to play guitar. I've been called an old "hippie chick," and I don't mind that label in the least. I also love to try other people's recipes and find ones that remind me of my Mother, and those precious memories that I had growing up in a household with such a wonderfully comforting cook...I work full-time in a real estate office as an office administrator. I came to this site looking for recipes that were tried and true. I stayed at this site because I found people who were kind, loving, caring and shared the same interest that I do --- food and cooking. I've saved a lifetime of recipes and learned so much about cooking and ingredients that I actually feel proud of my cooking. I bet my Mom looks down on me with pride every time I cook a new recipe from RecipeZaar, and I bet my Dad cracks up every time he sees me photographing what I've cooked! My daughters have actually gotten into the act, too, and are quite versed in searching for recipes and answers here on Zaar. Makes me proud to be their Mom. RecipeZaar isn't just a "website." It's a lifestyle. And some of the friends I've made here are LIFELONG friends to me --- and in my estimation, those types of people are a rare thing to find in this world. :) P.S.
