Flavorful Friday: Oven-Baked Zucchini, Mushroom, Onion, & Bacon Frittata

I love breakfast foods. I could eat breakfast for every meal! This oven-baked zucchini, mushroom, onion & bacon frittata is a tasty recipe that I love to make for dinner and then reheat the next day for lunch.

I got this recipe from my Vita-Mix recipe book and changed it a bit to work with my ingredients. There are so many variations of this recipe that you can do!

You saute the veggies first. I used diced zucchini, mushrooms and onion.

Then you place your eggs, seasonings and parmesan cheese in your Vita-Mix and blend for 15 seconds. Using your Vita-Mix to blend eggs is super easy!

Next your put your sauteed veggies in the bottom of your pan (I used a 8 x 8 glass pyrex dish). I rubbed the dish with coconut oil first so nothing will stick to the dish.

Then pour egg mixture over your veggies and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.

Then I added some yummy slices of bacon on top. I use Maverick Ranch Natural Un-Cured Bacon which is hormone-free, antibiotic-free & with no added nitrates!

Now you bake for 20-25 minutes or until set.
