Ingredients

  • 8 ounces bacon I used Applegate Organics
  • 1 cup sweet peas
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups fontina cheese grated + ½ cup as garnish
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pepper
  • 1 tomato
  • fresh herbs parsley or cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place a large (10 inch) cast iron skillet over medium-low heat and add the bacon slices to the cold skillet.
  • When the bacon starts to curl, turn each slice to cook on the other side. Keep flipping and turning the bacon until desired crispness is achieved. Lay the cooked pieces on a paper towel.
  • Add the onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the remaining bacon grease, season with salt and pepper, and cook until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and cream until combined, season with a little salt and pepper and add the grated cheese.
  • Crumble the bacon and add it to the skillet. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and onion, add the sweet corn and sweet peas to the skillet. Stir the ingredients into the skillet, so they are evenly distributed.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 30 - 35 minutes.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature. Garnish with chopped tomatoes, grated cheese and fresh herbs.
  • Store in the fridge and reheat in the microwave for a few seconds or as needed.

Notes

If using frozen sweet peas and frozen sweet corn, place them in a colander under warm water one hour before you start cooking. Make sure you drain all the water before adding them to the frittata.
