A taste of yellow: Oven-Baked Frittata
A taste of yellow is a food blog event to publicise LiveStrong Day and Lance Armstrong's Foundation. Last year there were 149 entries, including mine. This year I've been inspired by the eggs we've been getting from the farmers market - they've got the most yellow yolks I've ever seen.
It's a simple mid-week dinner for us, one we were lucky to share with a friend this week. I hope you like it.
Oven Baked Frittata with bacon and vegetables
2 rashers of middle bacon, chopped fine
1 brown onion, thinly sliced
150g button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/2 green capsicum, thinly sliced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tomato, thinly sliced
8 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup finely grated cheese (any sort will do, the stronger the flavour the better.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease and line a 4cm deep slab pan. Heat a small frying pan and saute the bacon and vegetables (except the tomato) until the vegetables are tender. Spread the vegetable mix on the bottom of the pan. Whisk the eggs with the milk and cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the vegetable mix. Arrange the tomato slices on top, and push down gently to make sure everything is submerged.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, or until the egg is set. Let it sit for another 20 minutes before serving.
