First things first, today’s post is my 100th Post!! It’s kinda dorky, but I can’t believe I have 100 posts on here!!

It’s been quite a busy couple of weeks. I’ve been in my kitchen A LOT! I found a plethora of recipes that I’ve been itching to make and with that come dishes. Lots of LOTS of dishes. Now this dish is a 1 “pot” meal. Unless you’re a blogger then you’ll probably have like ten. Needless to say my hands hurt. They are all banged up from doing all these dang dishes. I need a hand transplant or something. Do they even have those? Thanks to my mom, I already have genetics against me because anything and everything chaps my hands. That on top of dish washing, I’m in some serious need of new hands. Or I should just shut up and by some rubber gloves?

Now back to breakfast. Frittatas are so yummy. Just the name FRITTATA is fun and so was making it! Just a few ingredients and POOF! Deliciousness!

After the bacon is done and all crispy set it aside… you can chop it up if you’d like. I broke mine in to pieces.

Measure out 4 cups of baby spinach. It will seem like a ton but it will cook down so much that you won’t believe your eyes!

Get that cheese ready… it’s a heaping 1/4 of a cup… ya dig?

Sprinkle it evenly over the spinach and bacon.

Pour the eggs over top of all that goodness, cover and let it sit for 6 minutes or until the center of the eggs is set.

And there you have it… a one “pot” frittata!

Say it with me… FRITTATA!

Remove it to a cutting board to slice.

I’m not sure how that clump of bacon got on that side of the frittata… but I’ll let you in on a little secret. That was my piece :)))

Slice in to wedges, stack and serve. This also reheats wonderfully the next day! You have to try this you’ll LOVE IT!
