Three cheese bacon tomato frittata

I have started making breakfast ahead of time for the week and my favorite to make is a nice hearty frittata. They are so easy to make and with the right filling incredibly delicious. I make them the day before, split them up into portions and store in the fridge. It lasts about 3 days for my family of 2 adults and two toddlers. My family is all about cheese and bacon so I decided to make a three cheese bacon tomato frittata for the remainder of this weeks breakfast.

I started with slicing down about a cup of cherry tomatoes.

I then took 6 slices of bacon and cut down into good size pieces.

While the bacon was cooking I mixed together 10 eggs in a large bowl.

    I add garlic and spinach or kale to my frittatas. These are always a great fast and portable breakfast to make ahead for the week!

    Just found your site and I love the pictures you post, the layout of your site and the clear nutrition information that you post. I can’t wait to go through the rest of your recipes! Thank you!

      It depends on your preference. If you can stomach the extra fat, don’t drain it. If you like it a little more conservative especially while starting out then drain it. If you aren’t going to be able to eat it there is no purpose. Bacon fat is very yummy so I personally use every drop!
