Key Ingredients and Substitutions

Refer to the recipe card for a printable list of ingredients.

  • Bacon: Provides flavor and healthy fats. You can substitute bacon with sausage, shame, chicken, or pancetta. Omit meat for a vegetarian option.
  • Mushrooms: Use your favorite variety or swap with other vegetables like spinach, bell peppers, or onions. I used sliced button mushrooms for this frittata.
  • Eggs: The base of the frittata. Use high-quality, pasture-raised eggs for optimal nutrition.
  • Spinach: I used baby spinach its great for adding essential vitamins and minerals and another texture and color to your dish.
  • Heavy Cream. Adds richness and creaminess. For dairy-free options, substitute with coconut cream or full-fat almond milk.
  • Cheese: Choose a full-flavored cheese like cheddar, gruyere, or parmesan. If needed, opt for dairy-free cheese alternatives. I used cheddar for this recipe.

Feel free to customize this recipe with your favorite ingredients. Some popular additions include feta cheese, mozzarella cheese, red bell pepper, brie cheese, garlic, diced ham, or parmesan cheese.

    Love this Frittata. A simple, quick, and delicious meal!
    I did modify it a bit by adding fontina cheese, onion and bell pepper. Very satisfying!
    Thank you.

  2. Swapped out the butter for vegan, milk for almond milk and dairy free cheese and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

  3. 5 stars
    I made this recipe in a glass pie pan and it came out perfect with little clean up. The only issue I have is the amount of time in the oven, I used a counter top oven and had to add 8 minutes to the cooking time. I also have substituted ham for the bacon and took out the mushrooms and added spinach.

  4. can you transfer mixture from frying pan to baking pan then pour the remainder indegrid. if you don’t have a cast iron pan?

  5. This frittata is SO good! I like to make it on a Sunday and have it for breakfast over the next four days. It’s a great portable option that I can heat up at work. It’s delicious with half an avocado.
