Potato Bacon Cheddar Frittata -This delicious frittata is an ideal, easy brunch idea. This recipe uses potatoes but leftover cooked pasta works too.
Potato Bacon Cheddar Frittata; we are planning an awesome Mothers Day Brunch at our house and the center of that delicious meal will be an easy-to-make potato bacon cheddar frittata that’s a simple way to feed the crowd without spending all morning in the kitchen, especially if you are using leftover or previously prepared ingredients such as leftover ham, sausage or crisp cooked bacon. Frittatas also make good use of leftover plain pasta or potatoes; we use leftover roasted potato nuggets in this frittata recipe. You can find our Perfect Roast Potato recipe here.
Eggs at room temperature will cook faster and lighter than cold eggs. Place them in a bowl of lukewarm water for 15 minutes to warm them up if needed while you cook the bacon.
