Apple, Bacon & Onion Frittata
This whole30 compliant Apple, Bacon & Onion Frittata is so delicious you won’t even miss the cheese! Loaded with all the goodness of fall, it has so much flavor you wouldn’t believe it is healthy! It is perfect for brunch, breakfast, lunch or even dinner! The Apple, Bacon & Onion Frittata works well for meal prep too! Oh, and a little maple syrup on top for my non-whole30 friends is quite epic! Just saying!
Yes, I am back with more egg recipes! Are you sick of them yet? If you read last week’s post then you have seen all my favorite ways to use eggs and egg whites! I know my obsession with breakfast is a little crazy, but it is my favorite meal of the day and I can actually take pictures in daylight! (The nighttime photos can be scary! haha) Plus, this Apple, Bacon & Onion Frittata is perfect for any meal! I ended up eating it for a quick lunch most days with a big salad! It was easy, flavorful and kept me full! Plus, apples are chock full of health benefits! 34 in fact! Don’t believe me? The just read THIS! Incredible, right?
So, I was doing a little mealprep last weekend (yes, even though I work from home, I still meal prep! I need to be able to grab something quick!) and had an apple and some bacon that needed to be used up. Since I love eggs (for all meals of the day!) I decided to make this quick frittata while I was working on some other dishes (Meatloaf and crockpot tri-tip…..swoon!) I left out the cheese since I am doing my second round of Whole30 and to be honest, despite cheese being like my second favorite food on the planet (after eggs) I didn’t even miss it! The sweet apples combined with the salty bacon and the savory onion just took over! It was sooo good I ended up eating it for breakfast and lunch the next day!
