slice of Paleo BLT Frittata from Paleo Grubs

Paleo BLT Frittata

Recipe fromPaleo Grubs

This BLT frittata is a good way to get the wonderful classic flavors of a BLT sandwich without all the bread and mayo. Juicy tomatoes and bacon are a combination that is simply delicious.

Ingredients

8 eggs
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
3-4 cups spinach (or other greens of your choice)
1 large tomato, sliced and seeded
1 tbsp almond milk
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, basil, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add greens and cook 3-4 minutes until wilted. Add in bacon and stir.
  3. Add egg mixture to the pan and place tomatoes on top. Using a spatula, occasionally lift the edges to allow uncooked egg to run under. When the frittata has set, transfer to the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until egg is cooked through. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

 

Not only are frittatas fun to say, but they’re fun to make too! If your weekday breakfasts or Sunday brunch need a little facelift, try mixing up with one of these Paleo-friendly frittatas. They shine on their own or pair perfectly with sweet potato hash, fresh fruit, or avocado toast!
